Leaflet Designer wanted!

Leaflet Designer wanted for Newbiggin by the Sea

As part of efforts to boost tourism and work, we are looking for a budding designer to work with us over the next few weeks to create the 2011 events leaflet for the town.

The leaflet will be distributed throughout the region and advertise important tourist events that will take place this summer in Newbiggin by the Sea. The designer will be responsible for creating the leaflet using copy supplied, and providing a version suitable to be printed.

This opportunity will suit anyone wanting to build a portfolio of evidence in design work, to help with future job applications or further education coursework. Councillor Rebecca McCready said, “We are keen to do our bit to support people back into work, and see this short-term voluntary position as an excellent opportunity for a talented individual to gain valuable work experience and recommendations.”

The post is unpaid and should last up to 4 weeks; the final print deadline being 14th April. Reasonable, agreed expenses will be provided. Anyone interested should contact us for more information or to express an interest (including a CV). Closing date is 16th March.
