Intern Hiring Day (Thursday 7 April, 7pm)
theDesk’s media team and members are organising an intern hiring day. We’re looking for media, marketing, social networking, events, fintech, graphic design and PR interns

The summer is on its way and we at theDesk co-working and events space in Sai Wan are looking for smart, highly motivated people to join our team as interns. In fact, we’re being motivated ourselves by organising a special ‘intern hiring day’ for anyone over 18 years old who wants experience in anything from journalism and social networking to fintech and graphic design.

Head to theDesk for 7pm on Thursday April 27 and hear from our media team as well as two of our member businesses: Seed Alpha and Beware the Lunatic. Then you can ask us questions before we all get to network and see who’s interested in working with us over the summer in an intern capacity. It’s all about hands-on experience here at theDesk so we are keen to meet with motivated, interesting and enthusiastic candidates from all backgrounds, particularly if you’re at university at the moment and looking to go into the media, marketing, graphic design or fintech industries.

As for theDesk, we have the following full or part-time intern roles available:

  1. Content writer for our website: writing pieces and taking photos.
  2. Social media marketer: creating social media posts and helping us design our strategy.
  3. Videographer: creating video content for our website.
  4. Event assistant: aiding us with the creation and management of events.
  5. Research assistant: helping us with research, from property to content.
  6. Web designer: working with HTML/ CSS. Basic understanding of Git workflow, knowledge of PHP, WordPress development or JavaScript is a plus.

Seed Alpha, which is a fintech firm that specialises in financial research management, producing website and software-based solutions for financial companies across the world, is looking for enthusiastic interns who can help with upcoming software-based projects. Specifically, the company wants young developers who have skill sets that include JavaScript and Node.js. To find out more about Seed Alpha, see thedesk.com.hk/members/#seedalpha.

Beware the Lunatic, which is a graphic design studio that offers creative solutions which are ‘off the beaten path’, is looking for a intern with some experience in graphic design and plenty of aptitude to learn. Ideally, founder Lun Wong wants an intern who has some experience with Adobe Creative suite, including Photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator. To find out more about Beware the Lunatic, see thedesk.com.hk/members/#lunatic.

Interns at theDesk receive training in business, journalism, marketing, legal and finance. For instance, our co-founders Thomas Hui, Adrian Yap and Oscar Venhuis are experts in business management, finance and marketing respectively. Our media team of Matt Fleming and Kingsley Man are former Time Out Hong Kong directors in editorial and online and are keen to train interns in journalism and website management.

There is also plenty of scope for ‘shared interns’ at theDesk, whereby you can experience a taster of different businesses over a number of weeks. This will be assessed on a case-by-case basis but we will, of course, outline this concept during the hiring day event. So we hope to see you there. Don’t forget to RSVP!
