We loved working together
Working as a Communication Assistant at Sparks & Co for a year was for me the best working experience I’ve ever had. Professionally as well as humanly speaking, Sparks & Co is composed of an amazing team to work with. The work done by Camille Cocaud, the CEO of the agency, was and still is very challenging, and therefore can only motivate her employees, called the ” Sparkitos”.
Communicating science in the brightest way, to help solve some of humanity’s greatest challenges, is a very meaningful message to pass, and can only motivate future employees to constantly solve new challenges and bring out new ideas.
As if my experience at Sparks & Co wasn’t perfect yet, Camille Cocaud and all the “Sparkito”s are the best people to work for and with!

Working with Camille at Sparks & Co for 6 months was a huge delight. I can only recommend her management skills, her professionalism and her understanding. Besides, I am very grateful for the interesting and diversified missions which allowed me to really develop my expertise. And Camille’s sense of humour made my experience at Sparks & Co even better!
Communication Assistant (2014)
I have worked with Camille for six months as Project Assistant on Horizon 2020 projects and it has been an eye opening experience. Her expertise and passion working in the science communication sphere is admirable. I have learned so much regarding this very interesting field and gained skills that will take me a long way in the communications field. Her patience and eagerness to support her staff in being just as good as her and her trust in us made us all want to deliver more! It has truly been a great experience for me. Not only have I gained lifetime colleagues but I have gained friends and new fans of my cooking!

Mariana Carrillo Carabez
International Cooperation Manager (2015-2016)
Working as a Communication Assistant at Sparks & Co for a few a weeks was a rewarding experience. The very welcoming team composed of Camille, Mariana and Caroline, was seriously implied in making me aware of the importance and challenges of Communication and Dissemination for European Scientific Projects. I learnt the use of many communication tools and found myself very interested in writing articles. This will definitely impact my career plan!
