ABOUT THE ROLE
Shift.ms is the social network for people with multiple sclerosis. It’s built on users supporting each other – we believe in information from experience.
Along with providing a platform for peer-to-peer support, we produce digital tools and content to support our 10,000+ members.
We apply our knowledge and creative processes to patient-led design throughout all of our work.
We’re looking for a graphic design intern with animation skills to help support the Shift.ms service design team. They will be involved in the ongoing development of the Shift.ms website and its features, along with supporting projects aimed at empowering patients and reducing isolation.
We are looking for a passionate and hard working creative to support in content generation across the full spectrum of projects at Shift.ms.
If you are interested in the impact creatives can have on the social sector then we want to hear from you.
