Front-End Developer Internship

What Our Graphic Design Interns Do

During this internship, you will be working closely with our designers and project managers to create engaging and interactive content for our clients. Projects you could be involved with include the creation of HTML emails, website development and maintenance, and web/iOS app development. The internship will allow you to gain hands-on experience, supporting the team through all stages of the project lifecycle. In addition to the opportunity to practice and enhance your technical skills, you will also learn about successful project management and client interaction.

You will be based in our Visual Communication team and will be working alongside designers who are looking to extend the range of digital deliverables we offer in-house. You should therefore be proactive with a willingness to learn and contribute innovative ideas towards the development of our service offerings.

The internship will commence in September 2017 and will last until December 2017. You will receive a stipend of £1,200 per calendar month, and you will be entitled to statutory holiday.
