Web Design Internship (in conjunction with GCU)
employment type: FULL TIME, INTERN
job location: Inspire Glasgow, Glasgow, G41 1EJ
salary: £9 / HOUR
job description:

We are looking for a motivated and inspiring recent Graduate from Glasgow Caledonia University to get involved with our Web Design projects. 

This role will get you involved in all the elements of design: 

  • Gather client requirements 
  • Express your creativity and generate ideas  
  • Construct aesthetic and user-centric mock-ups/storyboards 
  • Collaborate with our web developers on how the websites function 
  • Get involved in user testing and feedback gathering 

This is no coffee-making role, you will be given real responsibility and accountability for your work. There will be a strong team around you but you will be expected to deliver within managed time scales. You will also be expected to keep a learning log. 

We have a strong and diverse pipeline of work within our growing client base, which comes from a large range of sectors including corporate, public, and third sector organisations. This builds the ideal foundations for you to get involved with multiple projects in a relatively short period of time and gain insights into the fast-paced world of web design. 

This internship will be a fantastic opportunity to understand how a digital agency works. We operate in a fast-paced sector of the economy as a full-service agency including Design, Development, and Digital Marketing. You'll gain real insight into what employers are looking for and build a career plan. We see ourselves as investing in you for this 8-week period which also includes a probationary performance review and performance feedback.

We are always looking for talented people to join our company on a full-time basis and have employed previous interns before, so we might be able to offer you a position after a successful completion of your 8-week internship.

We have two offices, in Perth and in Glasgow. The majority of our Glasgow-based staff is currently working from home and we don’t have a concrete plan to return to the office, yet.
