Graphic Design Internship – Cambridge

What Our Graphic Design Interns Do

Our design internships are ideal for graduates who are seeking to apply their creative skills in a fast-paced and dynamic environment. You will be responsible for a wide range of design work from creating posters to developing marketing materials for scientific exhibitions and conferences, as well as medical illustration and interactive content for apps. We are looking for talented individuals with a great understanding of aesthetics and meticulous attention to detail. A high level of organisational skill and flexibility is essential as you will be working across multiple projects at any time.

The role will involve close collaboration with members of the Visual Communication Team, as well as scientific colleagues and clients, on the development of projects from the initial conception to implementation and completion. In addition to the opportunity to enhance your practical design skills, you will also learn about successful project management and client interaction.

The internship is 3 months full-time and the internship will commence in June 2017. The stipend for interns is £1,200 per calendar month, and you will be entitled to statutory holiday. There is the possibility of a permanent position if the internship is deemed successful by both parties.

What Background Should You Have?

  • A degree level or higher qualification in a Design-based subject (expected/minimum 2.1)
  • Fluency in Illustrator and InDesign
  • Knowledge of Photoshop would be an advantage
  • A highly innovative portfolio
  • Experience with web/iOS app development (Xcode/HTML/CSS/JavaScript/PHP) is desirable but not essential
  • Although no previous experience in the scientific industry is required, an interest in applying design to the healthcare industry would be an advantage
