Creative Internship Programme UAE – Arabic/English Speaker, Dubai

WHO WE ARE

FleishmanHillard in the Middle East shares the guiding principles of the firm’s founders: mutual respect, integrity, teamwork and “client comes first” customer service. We combine an in-depth knowledge of Arabic culture with years of multidiscipline communications expertise.

As today’s global marketplace continues to evolve, countries in the Middle East are looking to diversify economies and further open markets to international business. To that end, there is a growing need for clear, consistent and strategic communication and reputation management. Our offices in the Middle East (Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Jeddah) offer experienced local practitioners who understand their markets and combine global expertise to deliver results.

INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY

You’re creative. You’ve studied creative subjects. Had countless creative ideas. Created many creative things. Now, you’re ready to take on the world. You just need a good place and opportunity to shine.

We’re looking for a Creative Intern who can help us handle our day-to-day creative needs.

Ideally, you’re a visual designer who is just getting started in your career and you want hands-on agency experience. While design is your greatest strength, you’re a multi-talented, multi-tasker who can support our entire team of writers, designers, and video producers.

Please note that the three month internship is unpaid. However, successful applicants will receive a small expenses allowance of AED 500 per week.

DAILY ACTIVITIES

Tasks include (but aren’t limited to):

  • Presentation design
  • Camera work
  • Video editing and post production
  • Visual mockups for presentations (e.g. social media feeds, landing pages, storyboards, event booths)
  • Photo editing (selections, cropping, color correction, basic re-touching)
  • Designing/Laying out short- and long-form documents for digital and print distribution (white papers, case studies, HTML emails, event invitations, etc.)
  • Social media content (static and animated)
  • Data visualization and infographics
  • Proofreading and light editorial work
  • Occasional short-form writing
  • The work is primarily nuts-and-bolts production design, but there are also plenty of opportunities to learn, grow, and work with some good, smart people.

WHO YOU ARE

You’re either currently pursuing (or have recently completed) a degree or advanced degree in Fine Arts, Graphic Design, Visual Communication, or similar. Barring that, you have at least 1 to 2 years of equivalent experience with an agency or in-house, client-service-oriented creative team.

Basic proficiency with the Adobe Creative Cloud apps (particularly InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop) and Microsoft Office (PowerPoint, Word, and Outlook) is a must. These are the tools of your trade. Experience with basic web languages (HTML5, CSS3, jQuery) and UX/UI design would be amazing, but not required.
