The Bridge Intern Programme

£9ph - Brighton Living Wage in Brighton

Our internship programme offers a one month placement in one of our core disciplines – creative and strategy – and is intended to provide aspiring brand thinkers with a holistic introduction to agency life. You’ll get involved with our live brand projects, working alongside the team to get under the skin of our clients and suss out what they’re all about, and then coming up with ideas for creative solutions to their commercial and cultural challenges. Whichever discipline you choose, you’ll work with a senior lead who will guide you through our approach, the role and its responsibilities – but they’re also there to challenge you too! Our internships should challenge you – sometimes leading to an idea that will shatter our own thinking, and other times things are going to end up in the bin (and that’s totally OK!). As an inherently creative team, we think everyone should have the opportunity to sink their teeth into big challenges and the space to create big ideas.

Whilst there are a lot of perks to agency life here – from office dogs to beer fridges – we work hard and bloody love what we do. We’re looking for ambitious talent; people who are at the beginning of their journey into brand and design who are hungry to find out more. Our internship programme is designed to be a bridge from school or uni into the industry (or even a space to explore a total career change) and a chance for you to explore what brand means to businesses like Aon, Fujitsu, Google, Helpforce and more.

Working 9-5 is a way to make a living, because we pay all our interns the Brighton Living Wage (£9/hour)… and we promise that is the only Dolly Parton joke we’ll make for at least a week. There’s no guaranteed job at the end of the programme, but if something does come up – our interns are obviously best placed to know about it.

Strategy & Planning

Calling all curious minds: the strategy and planning internship offers a chance to delve into the world of brand through the lens of research, account management, diagnosis, planning and strategy.

People who ask questions, who relish the opportunity to be nosey, to learn about a whole new industry or discipline inside out. Highly organised with great communication skills, the strategy and planning department is very client-facing. Bit of a generalist but always great at joining the dots and finding solutions? Maybe strategy & planning is for you.

Creative

Want the opportunity to flex your creative muscles and explore the power of design and ideas in the world of brand? This internship is a chance to solve big challenges through design in all its shapes and forms (and colours, obviously).

Aspiring designers, illustrators, photographers, typographers, motion graphics artists and more. If you cannot put down the pencil (or stylus) because you’re full of ideas and exploration – then a creative internship might be the one for you. You’ll be on the receiving end of creative briefs from the strategy & planning team, and working alongside our creative team to come up with ideas and execute polished artwork.

Development

We don’t offer an internship within our development team (yet), but if you are an underrepresented person who would like to embark on a career in development, we highly recommend you check out one of the these organisations who can provide you with mentorship and support along your journey. We’re committed to diversifying our industry, and proudly support our local chapter of Codebar.
