Interested in working with us? Say hi.
Here’s some of the things people have said about working with The Verb…
The Verb to me is about challenging yourself.
“I came in with little knowledge of what the experience was going to be like, or of what was actually going on. But the team really helped me quite a lot in picking up what was going on really quickly. The Verb to me is about challenging yourself, and doing so in a team environment, where everyone is in that same position.”
– Jeremiah Brown, COP18
I loved my time with The Verb.
“I loved my time with The Verb and would love to have an opportunity to work with the team again in the future. I really enjoyed the culture and working environment that was created by the team, and just being in The Verb House.”
– Michael Mazengarb, COP18
To me The Verb is like a family.
“COP18 [was] as an awesome experience where I learned a lot. To me The Verb is like a family. Not a family in the mushy sense, but that we are able to be honest, direct, and support one another. I really enjoyed the culture that we created!”
– Holly Jones, COP18
It [was] an unforgettable experience. I can’t even begin to describe how it changed me – politically, culturally and as a budding journo.
“It [was] an unforgettable experience. I can’t even begin to describe how it changed me – politically, culturally and as a budding journo. I really loved meeting people from all corners of the world, of all different ages, and living with them for two weeks as we wrote tirelessly to make something happen. It was an opportunity not many people are lucky enough to experience. It’s amazing to be surrounded by such passionate people and this clearly shows in The Verb’s [work]. The Verb developed me as a journalist.”

“The Verb for me was a venture into the virtually unknown and once I was inside COP18 I realised [that] it’s a place to get started, to further develop a work ethic and discover new (nice and high) standards.”
– Sarah Dayringer, COP18
“Working with The Verb at a COP was quite an experience. You are working with smart and talented people from around the world in a fast paced environment. It is a rewarding and educational experience from beginning to end.”
– Andrés Fuentes, COP18
Such a steep learning curve, totally worth throwing yourself into.
“Such a steep learning curve, totally worth throwing yourself into – you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you may get punched…”
– Laura Owsianka, COP18
“The Verb is a dynamic team of passionate people from various backgrounds. Rio+20 was a challenge and I encourage others from backgrounds other than the media to give The Verb a shot – we need people from all backgrounds contributing.”
– Sam Bowstead, Rio+20
The word I used to describe the experience most often is “amazeballs”.
“The word I used to describe the experience most often is “amazeballs,” so that’s pretty positive. I really enjoyed the experience overall, I think I got a lot out of it and I hope I got some information/analysis of the conference out that otherwise wouldn’t have been as accessible.” – Genevieve Stewart, Rio+20
