The One Club, a leading non-profit organisation supporting creatives in the design and advertising industry, has launched a free jobs board for companies to post their opportunities during the Covid-19 crisis. This international emergency has caused widespread economic instability, causing many to lose jobs as budgets tighten, but this platform hopes to offer a lifeline to creatives, or at the very least a glimmer of hope that the world still needs creative work.
The resource lists full-time and project work, freelance assignments and internships, from agencies, design studios, production companies and brands.
In the few days since the organisation made a call-out for job posts, the resource has built up 180 job openings on its list, including positions and projects with companies such as Spotify, BETC, Droga5, FCB, JKR, AKQA and Squarespace. These are predominantly US-based, with a handful in Europe and South America.
The positions range all levels of experience and all departments within creatively led businesses, but it should be noted some of the opportunities are future-dated “for when we come out of the other side of this unprecedented outbreak” – although no one knows when that will be, or what state the industry will be left in afterwards.
“We needed to act quickly to help people whose jobs have been affected by the pandemic, and this was the easiest, fastest way to connect people with job openings,” says Justin Epstein, who runs The One Club’s membership department. “It’s a simple, no-frills platform that can make a real difference for both parties.”
The One Club runs the annual Young Guns list of emerging creative talent, as well as the ADC Awards, The One Show and Creative Week.
