The Jupiter Drawing Room Cape Town is looking for for to five creatives to join The Ripple Effect – a 12-month paid programme that was launched in 2004 for young BEE creatives who are looking for a foot in the door and an opportunity to be a part of creative agency. You won’t be making coffee for us, you’ll be a part of the team.
What kind of candidates are the agency looking for? If you answer yes to these questions, then they could well need you to join the team. Do you consider yourself a forward-thinking, passionate, culturally insightful misfit who can take something and turn it on its head? Have you just recently finished studying and you’re looking for an opportunity to strut your stuff?
This year, The Ripple Effect is looking for creatives who specialise beyond copywriting, art direction and design. Think photography, editing, coding, animation, directing, and the like.
The application process is a little different this year: Jupiter CT has submitted its CV to the best schools in and around Cape Town.
“We put our own CV together for the students, much like they would have to do in the real world. We highlighted our expertise, our passions, our values – which include being wildly inventive and f**king ballsy, our experience, and our skills. Now we’re looking for candidates with a different skill set that would complement ours to come forward,” says Joanne Thomas, executive creative director of design at Jupiter CT.
“If you choose to work with us, you’ll be working as a team, so collaboration is key, and an appreciation for other skill sets, and an open-mindedness towards amplifying them is vital,” says Thomas.
You can apply as an individual creative or part of a multi-disciplined team, and if you’re short-listed, you’ll be invited to a speed-date interview with our creative directors. Something a little less formal than the usual suit-up. Fingers crossed.
