Learn PowerPoint Design in Manchester

Calling all recent design graduates!



Looking for that first step in your design career and the opportunity to move to London? Well you’ve come to the right place.

We’re hosting a free and comprehensive PowerPoint design training course in Manchester in January and February 2020.

With six intensive sessions over three weeks, you’ll quickly learn the ins and outs of presentation design, with the opportunity on course completion to join our team full-time, based in Manchester or London.

Who are we?
We’re Article Ten.

An independent, full-service marketing communications agency based in London and Manchester. Our tagline? Never the same old story. A mantra we apply to every project, whatever the brief.

We began as a small team and have now grown to support organisations of all sizes across the UK, Europe and beyond. Our clients include Microsoft, Rolls Royce, Save the Children, Reckitt Benckiser, Siemens, Sony, Burberry, Esteé Lauder and countless more.

We’re looking to expand our talented team, which we’re hoping could include you…

Who are you?
Ideally, you’re a recent graduate. You’ll be just starting or relatively new in your career, with a professional design qualification, preferably a degree.

We expect all applicants to have a good knowledge of Adobe tools and a working knowledge of Microsoft PowerPoint.

What’s the opportunity?
Article Ten will host a short course on PowerPoint presentation design, compiled of six sessions over three weeks.

We’re looking for six designers to join the course and are aiming to offer at least two of the candidates a full-time role upon completion.

However, we’re absolutely interested in design lovers from all backgrounds, so if you think you have what it takes, we’re keen to hear from you.

A full-time role?
For successful candidates who have received and accepted a job offer with Article Ten, the starting salary will be £18-20,000 with a clear path to promotion within two years.

Any job offers will initially be based in Manchester. However, the candidate(s) may then opt to stay in Manchester or move to our London office (near Old Street) upon completion of their probation period (approx. 3 months).

What’s the plan?
This unique training opportunity will be led by Article Ten’s Senior Presentation Designer, whose passion for PowerPoint you can explore on our blog.
