Internship
Qingdao
Posted 2 months ago

Company Introduction:

We are a small, UK-owned media and design company, and our base in Qingdao focuses on the publishing of a city magazine (as well as an annual education guide). Our magazine is a 12,000 circulation, 64-page English-language magazine that finds and delivers the best of Qingdao to our mostly non-Chinese readership.

As part of the team, you will have a large amount of responsibility from day one, and in many cases you may be the only person working on a task. In practice, this means that you will have considerable independence in your work; and that your opinions

will always be listened to.

We are a very creative and dynamic company. Our hours are flexible and our work is done to a high standard, but is enjoyable. We find interesting places and work with a huge variety of interesting people, in the constantly changing China. If you’re enthusiastic and dedicated, and want responsibility, creativity and space to grow, then this job is for you.

 

Tasks:

  • Planning fun, interesting and manageable events with the aim of increasing our brand visibility and city networks
  • Constant communication with sales and editorial team, to integrate our events with
  • What’s being published and the clients we work with
  • Working with/on our digital and social media outlets to promote events
  • Approaching current and potential event clients with ideas that are mutually beneficial to us and the client (e.g. on seeing a new bar that looks fun/lots of people go to, the ideal candidate would immediately start thinking of ways we can cooperate with the bar, such as holding a music night there, to expand our network and also help the bar reach new audiences.)

Requirements:

  • Excellent English is essential, Mandarin strongly desirable
  • Genuine enthusiasm for restaurants and nightlife
  • Intuitive sense for what makes a great event, and what different audiences are after
  • Publicity and marketing know-how
  • Excellent organization skills and ability to work to deadlines (which may mean longer hours as an event approaches)
  • Attention to detail and ability to think ahead for potential problems, hitches
  • Quick adaptability to changes in event requirements and circumstances
  • Excellent attention to detail and critical skills (i.e. being able to spot when an article is not useful, or formatted incorrectly)
