2. Your CV
3. A letter in English that answers the following questions :
Why do you want PLACE to be one of the next steps in your life?
When do you perform at your best? What do you need to thrive?
How would you describe PLACE to someone who just heard about it and knows nothing about the sector? (one sentence is enough, or more if you wish).
Please also include details about what you’ve been doing until now. We all have incredibly varied lives and are not interested in linearity so don’t worry if you don’t fit into boxes- but we are really interested in skills and drive.
