We are 20,000 strong in 90 markets around the world; our people bring together creative storytelling, diverse perspectives, inclusive thinking, and highly specialized vertical capabilities to drive growth for our clients. We offer deep expertise across the entire customer journey, including communications, commerce, consultancy, CRM, CX, data, production, and technology.

Are you a young creative talent ready to put your skills in use whilst learning more? 

We are seeking a design trainee to join our creative department and assist and learn in making our clients life better. Our key clients are globally renowned business leaders in their field and our job is to make their brand look best on all platforms.  

Whether you are self-taught or partly educated entry level graphic designer / art director, then get in touch with your portfolio.  

What we require from our design trainees:

  • Basic working knowledge of the key design applications Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign is a must. After Effects, Premiere and other would be a bonus.

  • Good English skills for working communications. Our team is international, and we use English as our official working language.  
  • Good interpersonal skills and proactive approach to learning. We are happy to help you, but the best learning experience comes from you asking the questions.

About the traineeship:

Our approach to traineeship is very simply this: to offer you the best experience in putting your professional skills in use. You will receive a mentor, that will take the lead in your onboarding phase. After that you will be getting more involved in the work itself and based on your personal desire and skillset, taking more independent role in some projects. Don't worry though - you will have your team with you at all times to offer you the support needed. 

The traineeship is a fantastic opportunity to really see what the working life is about. We don't hire anyone to make us coffee. We all do it ourselves and like us, we want you to put your focus on the work itself. 

What we can offer you:

We don't settle for people who can just do the job, we look for people that go beyond that and always push our thinking to be better than yesterday. We believe that this is what makes our agency a great place to be – a space where you’re never far away from the best minds to learn from.

We want you to be comfortable and proud every day of the week and have created an open and inclusive environment where you can bring your whole self to work. We don’t want you to just fit into our culture, we want your uniqueness and diversity of background to add to it and make this an agency where we all have a real sense of belonging and purpose. We are a community.  

We have a number of programmes and initiatives designed to support your career and wellbeing. There are exciting knowledge sharing programmes delivered through lunch and learn sessions, cultural opportunities through our exchange programme, and you can have an impact on the wider community through one of our charity initiatives. Your career development is important to us and should you ever choose to move on from Wunderman Thompson, we want you to be better than when you joined us.

There really is no shortage of opportunities here for the right person that is prepared to roll their sleeves up, get involved and collaborate with those around them to deliver the best work for our clients and our agency.
