The Dawn Traineeship

The beginning of things.

Discover and develop your talents, work with iconic brands, and contribute to positive change with the Dawn traineeship. With us, you’ll be a full-fledged member of the team, get a running start in creative advertising and make something.

The perfect candidate doesn’t exist — and that’s a good thing.

Dawn is a hotchpotch of people, and it’s the wide variety of backgrounds and experiences that make our work fun. So it doesn’t matter if you’ve worked 10 years in the industry or if you’ve just heard of it. Whether you can illustrate, write, design, plan, film, rhyme, photograph, or create, the Dawn traineeship is for you.

We’re not looking for benchwarmers.

As a trainee at Dawn, you’re not just a cog in the machine, but a full-fledged member of the team. Over the course of 9 months, you’ll be working alongside our team on our clients’ running projects, and working on a project of your own: a joint assignment with the other trainees.

The nitty gritty.

You can apply by sending over your CV (feel free to leave out as much personal information as you feel comfortable—but leave us some contact details!) and please attach 1 file that shows us who you are. We know it sounds cliché, but there really are no wrong answers here. An illustration, music video, poem, song, spoken word, comic book, short story, or deck; you get the idea. So get creative (i.e. feel free to go a little nuts)! Send your CV and attachment before June 15th to

Important dates:

  • April: open for applications

And last, but certainly not least: during the 9 months traineeship, you’ll receive a gross salary of €1600/mo for 32h/week (4 days).
