Founded in 1962, D&AD is an organisation that is all about the pursuit of creative excellence within advertising and design - inspiring it, celebrating it and enabling it. A fundamental way of us achieving this is through our world-class learning programmes which upskill the current and future workforce.
Whilst our remit focuses on the advertising and design industry there is a broader goal, to demonstrate the positive impact that creativity can have across education, the economy and within society.
What is D&AD Shift with Google?
Shift exists to challenge the idea that there is only one route into a creative career. College fees and other systemic barriers have prevented some of the best talent from becoming part of our industry. The creative industry needs to change the way we recruit. We need to look at creating alternative pipelines and alternative education channels, in order to change the balance. Shift is a different kind of talent programme. A free, industry-led night school for outstanding, untapped and fresh creatives who don’t have a four-year college degree or industry networks but are looking to kick-start a creative career.
Meeting twice a week online and in agencies around the city, a group of 20 emerging creatives will work on briefs and creative challenges for 15 weeks, culminating in a showcase. Your role will be helping to make this incredible opportunity happen within Berlin.
We are looking for a purpose-driven and innovative Freelance Project Producer to help deliver our award-winning learning program in Berlin. In this role, you will work closely with the Shift team currently based in London, São Paulo, Germany and Sydney. You will be supported by an assistant in Berlin and the wider D&AD team.
You'll be a pivotal force in driving the project successfully while helping reshape the future of design and advertising to be more inclusive and accessible for everyone.
