Our minimum 3-month membership policy applies to all applying members, even interns. We offer priority to applicants who are interested in long-term memberships only (rather than the shorter-term memberships that are generally requested by interns) - but we are generally happy to invite people into the community if they can commit for at least three months.
This reasoning is due to the fact that Factory is a business club, and not a co-working space. We take great care in putting together a group of individuals that are active and keen to contribute and grow with the community. This also comes back to the fact that Factory is largely intended to be a place for cross-collaboration, and interns assigned to teams are unlikely to be able to assist with projects beyond their immediate workload (understandably, of course).
For this reason, if you would like to have an intern work with you at Factory on a daily basis, they will have to apply for membership. As with all applications, there is no guarantee that the application will be accepted - so for this reason, please ensure that your intern takes the time to complete the application properly and provide some insight into their motivation to join the community, beyond simply working as an intern. You can also provide your intern with your Ambassador Code for their application.
If it is the case that your intern is declined and you'll need to work together every day, unfortunately you may need to find a space other than Factory during this time, as our guest policy allows for the same guest to enter no more than two times per month.
Thank you for your understanding!
// NOTE: We would caution against advertising a Factory Membership as a promised element of an Internship. Please keep this in mind if you are advertising for an intern, as we cannot guarantee acceptance of any individuals.
