At Singletrack magazine we have run a successful in-house undergraduate ‘apprenticeship’ scheme for a number of years now. One of our journalist apprentices recently left the University of Huddersfield with a 1st class honours degree in sports journalism. Our recent IT apprentice now works for us full time after similarly scoring a 1st from Chester University.
We are looking to appoint two new apprentices to work with us alongside their undergraduate study.
Apprentice 1: Graphic Designer
We are looking for someone to help us produce even more high-quality design output for multiple channels including print, website and social media. You will need to be familiar with Adobe Creative Cloud suite of tools.
You will be currently enrolled on an undergraduate degree in graphic design and be able to commute to our office in Todmorden.
Apprentice 2: Journalist
We are looking to start a new apprentice in our editorial team to help us with all aspects of our editorial production from writing up press releases to reviewing product.
You will be enrolled on an undergraduate course related to journalism and an enthusiastic mountain biker. You will need to be within commuter distance of our offices in Todmorden, West Yorkshire.
Earn While You Learn
Our apprentices learn the business from the ground up and they are an excellent way to supplement studies in a real world commercial publishing environment. But that’s not the end of the perks. We will pay you to work for us and when you are not working for us and are hard at work at university, studying, we’ll keep paying you a retainer to help you through the term.
The terms are pretty straightforward: During term time you study and we pay you a small weekly retainer. Outside of term time you work for us (at least 80% of your time away from university).
Depending on your university timetable our apprenticeships typically pay around £5000/year for the duration of your studies.
