Contract
Singapore

This position is ideal for recent graphic design graduates who are seeking to gain an insight into life in a commercial environment. The internship will provide a valuable opportunity to get hands-on design experience in the pharmaceutical industry.

You will be responsible for a wide range of design work from creating posters to developing marketing materials for scientific exhibitions and conferences, as well as medical illustration and interactive content for apps. We are looking for a talented individual with a great understanding of aesthetics and meticulous attention to detail, who will gain experience in all stages of a project from the initial concept development to full production, allowing for real autonomy and creativity.

The internship is 3 months full-time, and the preferred start date is the 7th September 2015 depending on the availability of the successful candidate. The stipend for interns is S$1,200 per calendar month, and you will be entitled to statutory holiday. There is a possibility of extending the internship if deemed successful by both parties.

Applicants should possess a degree level or higher qualification in a Design-based subject (minimum or expected second upper class honours or equivalent). In addition to your degree, candidates must be able to demonstrate a highly innovative portfolio.
Essential skills include fluency in Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop, as well as a high level of proficiency in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel. Knowledge of print preparation and management, and/or experience with web/iOS app development (Xcode/HTML/CSS/JavaScript/PHP) are highly desirable.
Although no previous experience in the scientific industry is required, an interest in applying graphic design to the healthcare industry would be an advantage.
