B!G Digital Design Intern Needed

We are looking for a creative, energetic Digital/Visual Communication Graduate who wants to help us support young people change their world through creativity.

Paid Position
Fully Remote
Flexible Hours

The B!G Idea is a multi award-winning creative education programme. We want to change the world with creative thinking; empowering the next generation with critical skills to tackle local and global issues. Our mentors advise and share cutting-edge methodologies with our students who use the shared knowledge directly on their chosen project. We level the playing field; all programme materials, class content and resources are provided for free to students, parents and schools.

Your role would be to make us better, bringing energy and a fresh perspective to our brand and visual assets that are created for our various audiences. You would develop a brand pack and templates for the team to use, and review and create new social media visuals for our various activities.

You would be supported by an experienced team who can help you to develop content that is meaningful and engaging, allowing us to collectively grow The B!G Idea’s impact.

We are looking for someone who enjoys being positive, loves colour, is curious and creative, and knows how to have fun with visual elements.

Ownership & Responsibilities
Supported by the team you would:
Create a brand pack to communicate best practices.
Create proposals for social media activities on our various platforms.
Create templates for presentations in Keynote and Google Slides.

You must:
Have a self- starter energy and an ability to work independently.
Have a strong eye for detail and design, buckets of curiosity with creativity in your bones.
Have a great personality – culture is everything and we want to have the craic with you!
Have experience with social media (personally or on a project).
Have working knowledge of various Adobe products.
Be based in Ireland – we meet face to face from time to time.

It would be great if:
You had an understanding of the creative process and its benefits.
Experience in WordPress (definitely not essential).
You have worked in a remote capacity before.
You had brilliant references.

We don’t care about:
What qualifications you have (there are plenty of self-taught super stars in the world).
Where you live in Ireland (we are fully remote).

We are a brilliant employer because:

We empower our team with fully flexible hours – we understand people have lives and sometimes have responsibilities during the typical working day.
We are fully remote.
We are building together, helping to collectively grow The B!G Idea’s impact.
We don’t count holidays – (but) we do require you to be available during key programme timings.

Please Note:
Closing Date for applications is Thursday July 28th at 5pm.
Short CV & Portfolio link and introductory email should be sent to hello@thebigidea.ie or directly through LinkedIn.
We would like you to start soon but can work with the right person on a start date that suits both parties.
We are an equal opportunity employer.
Interviews will be held online Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th August.
The above Job Description is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all duties involved; the successful candidate may be required to perform other duties as appropriate to the post which may be assigned to them from time to time and to contribute to the development of the position.
