Part-Time Web Designer (Intern)
The role is to lead web-design work – making our websites and widgets pop and sing online. You'd help in the creative process and in the implementation.

You should be aged whatever, with a positive attitude.
Good-Loop is a platform that puts video ads on websites.
But: if you watch one of our ads, the advertiser gives half the money to charity.
We currently serve 1.6m ad impressions a month, with clients including Unilever, Kit-Kat, and Canon. Last year we raised over £200,000 for good causes – such as medical aid, educating children, helping the homeless, tackling mental health issues. We are turning ads from a nuisance to be blocked, into a shared positive moment (which works better for the advertiser too). Our company mission is to make ethical more profitable.
