Prepress Projects: Layout Intern

We are looking for a typesetting and layout intern for summer 2017.

The job will involve assisting our technical team, which provides typesetting, application development and technical support. Your tasks will be tailored to the specific skills you bring but are likely to include undertaking or assisting with:

  • the layout of academic and scientific books, journals and reports for print and digital publication
  • applying proof corrections to typeset files
  • drawing or redrawing line artwork such as charts and graphs and manipulating images

You will have a good design sense and sound appreciation of typesetting and typography.

As the team you will be working in is also responsible for technical support and development, you will be at an advantage if you can also show skills in this area.

The internship will run from either Monday 29 May or Monday 6 June (to be mutually agreed), for a period of 13 weeks. It is a full-time post (37.5 hours weekly) based at our offices in Perth.

Unlike some companies, we pay our interns a proper salary. This year the salary is £1375 per calendar month.

Note: studying for or possessing a degree in an academic or publishing subject is essential.

Applications from postgraduate publishing or design students are welcome.

Apply by 17:00 on Friday 14 April 2017.

For full details and to apply, see the Prepress Projects website.
