Now accepting Fall 2015 Design Apprenticeship applications:
Design apprentices will be integrated into the world of SAIPUA by supporting our design team starting in mid September and finishing in December.
The right candidates are tough, smart, and passionate about event planning and design. You must have a working knowledge of Microsoft Office and Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, Photoshop, Indesign, etc.) – rendering skills are a huge plus. No floral experience necessary.
Design apprentices will enjoy a creative and interactive work environment, and will be involved in an exciting array of projects to (i.e. photoshoots, developing product design for retail, preparing design decks for events, devising schemes to further Saipua's mission to create and promote more sustainable practices in the floral industry, fiber projects utilizing the Saipua flock of Icelandic sheep at Worlds End Farm… the possibilities are infinite).
Since our apprentice program began in 2008, Saipua has turned out some of NYC’s most sought after new florists. We expect above and beyond performance from apprentices and in return offer free soap, flowers, lunches...and floral guidance forever. Collectively our interns have helped build SAIPUA into what it is today. They become like family. Potential opportunities for long-term employment for the right person if the stars align.
Must be based in NYC. Must be available 2 days per workweek (Monday - Friday).
Interested applicants will send their CV and a brief letter of intent to genevieve at saipua dot com. Only those applications that include 'DESIGN APPRENTICESHIP' in the subject line will be considered.
Optional attachments: portfolio and/or links to personal media accounts (i.e. blogs, pinterest, instagram, etc)
