Job description

Voir is offering optional work experience internship that works around the schedule of the students. Lasting anywhere from 6 months part-time to 12 months full time, Interns will be gaining hands-on industry experience with some of the biggest U.K brands and clients. Students will take on a role that suits their skills and interest rather than spending time making photocopies and coffees. These roles will include: writing articles for the magazine based on upcoming and current events, trends and concepts, creating exciting visual contents, assembling social media plans, contribute to the creation of fresh and inspiring imagery for social media and digital content, support photographic shoots as assistants to the Editor, Director or Production Manager and creating mood boards. With these specialised internships, students will gain an impeccable letter of recommendation, visual portfolio, and full credits in the magazine. Along with a flexible schedule, students have the option of either working at our office or remotely to better work with our interns' needs. Many of our internships walk straight into an industry career post internship from the connections and skills they have gained. Therefore, we believe this is an unmissable opportunity for fashion students who are serious about working in the fashion industry.
