We’re a friendly, sociable media company who produce a range of print and online publications, primarily in the education sector but also including some lifestyle titles. We’re currently offering a series of hands-on one to two-week work experience placements for aspiring graphic designers looking for an immersive media experience.

This isn’t just a tea-making mission: we’ve carefully structured a 5 or 10-day placement that will see you design for (and be published across) a range of printed titles, building up from simple to more challenging tasks, to give you a fully rounded experience and a real boost to your CV. Once the placement has been completed there’s an opportunity to continue your work experience for up to 3 days per week, subject to discussion.

If this sounds like something up your street, email bruce.mytton@wildfirecomms.co.uk now with your CV and no more than 3 examples of your design work. You’ll need to have some experience in using Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator.
