George P. Johnson UK needs you.
We’re looking for an Intern to join the Digital team and help us continue to create and execute new digital experiences for our client’s events. This could be concepts based on virtual reality, voice control, gamification, augmented reality, apps or even robots and drones. We use these tools to create experiences that engage and involve people with a brand/product.
Looking for an internship where your ideas and opinions count and are used in real projects?
Then this role is the perfect match!
• Lab Curator:
o The Lab is located at the heart of the GPJ UK office. It’s the place where we showcase previous projects, get hands on with tech, and try and test new gadgets.
o You would be responsible for the Lab. Keeping it up and running, finding and showcasing interesting content to share on the screens, staying up to date with new trends, testing new gadgets, and supporting when we bring in clients.
• Research writing:
o As technology develops and changes so radically it is important to understand what is going on and be able to stay ahead of the curve.
o Your research and insights on trends and relevant tools would be used to purchase new gadgets, but also in concept development and proposals to clients.
• Assisting on Concept Development:
o As an integral part of the Digital team, we would use your research to help with the creation of digital concept ideas for the many different projects we work on.
o You would be part of the creation phase, learning to understand a client’s brief and translate this to a concept that will hit the objectives.
• Onsite support at events:
o At the heart of what we do at GPJ is live events, which means there will be opportunities for you to support the digital team onsite at events.
o You would be responsible for the digital activity, which could include helping set up the experience, explaining to visitors of the event the story behind the concept, and being a representative of the client.
• Own Initiatives:
o Alongside your actual job role, we strongly want someone who is curious and wants to explore. In between projects we would ask you to focus on something additional that you want to learn – could be programming in HTML and CSS, learning Python or developing your visual design skills.
• Confidence in written and verbal English, e.g. emails, research work and presentations.
• Passion and interest in technology and the desire to learn
• Good organisation and time management
• Self-starter, and proactive in your work.

Words of wisdom from our current Digital Intern.
“No meeting room has been closed for me and curiosity is well appreciated. Every project I’ve worked on during my time here has made me able to improve my skills. This includes proposing creative and commercial concepts and assisting in developing these, but also do trend research to be able to stay ahead of the rest. I get completely involved in many projects and all my output is used, whether that’s for clients or internal use.”
