Grow your career in Design & Advertising... and blossom with an Apprenticeship at Frankman Design in Torquay!

Sorry, this position is now closed.

We are Frankman Design, a creative branding, design and advertising agency located on the Harbour side in Torquay and we are looking for an Apprentice to grow and develop into a leading marketing and website design professional.

Working with the latest software, we will keep you busy by teaching you the skills needed to promote companies on and off line. We will guide you through the process of brand development, how to promote and market businesses, introduce you to design and advertising, and teach you how to produce eye-catching websites.

We are not looking for a rocket scientist, but we are looking for someone who is keen to get into brand development, website design, and marketing. You need to have a great imagination, have an eye for detail, and want to help businesses to attract new clients.

You maybe fresh out of school following your GCSE’s, just completed your ‘A’ levels, currently at college or University, or simply looking for a new career opportunity. Whatever your situation, we want to hear why you want to work within a design studio, why you think branding and marketing is important to business, and what you like to do in your spare time.

If you have designed using a computer, created a website, or have an art book filled with your sketches, then let us know. If you have any work experience then don’t keep it a secret, it all helps!

To help you with your application, you can either use our guideline application process (see below), or you can send us your CV with a covering letter letting us know why you want to work within a design studio.

So, if you want to earn while you learn, have an eye for detail, and have used some, or all of the following software packages, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, or WordPress, then stop reading this and send us your CV!

You will earn £7,800 in your first year, have 20 days holiday, start at 9am, finishing at 5pm, with 1 hour for lunch. For 11-weeks of the year you will spend one of your days out of the office to attend South Devon College to gain either your Marketing (level 2) qualification or your Creative and Digital Media (level 3) qualification, the option is yours.
