    Suggest you lose the name of the company in your post.

    By the way, when you say "we" who do you mean? People in your company?

    If you have a number to contact, then you may be as well to contact them, explain the fact that you do not have the experience; however, you are keen to learn and develop your skills, and you see this as the perfect opportunity.
