      We’re not interested in empty perks like having a coffee culture. We do have coffee – if you join our central team in Cape Town, you could find yourself roped into coffee and snack challenges if you visit the office, but you could just as easily be taking your morning coffee at Roots cafe, high in the mountains of northern Thailand if you work on a base. Otherwise, here’s what our global team enjoys:
      • Half days on the first Friday of each quarter
      • Collaborative, flexible culture
      • Transparency – hear directly from the CEO consistently
      • We laugh a lot, genuinely care about and support each other, and do the occasional dress-up
      To apply

      Please follow the link and send your CV, portfolio, and a cover letter stating why you feel you would be best suited to this position at GVI.

      Please note: We will do our utmost to respond to all applicants, however, given the large volume of applications we receive, this isn't always possible. If you do not hear back from us within three-four weeks, please take it that on this occasion your application was unsuccessful
