Internships

Our day to day is always different. We might be talking to amateur tennis players in Miami to get their take on athletic equipment, cooking with mums in Jakarta to understand changes in food culture, or interviewing bartenders in London about the perfect cocktail.

We are constantly curious. We explore people’s actions and feelings, as well as the world around us, in order to go beyond the ‘what’ and uncover the ‘why’. We translate this into advice for companies - to inspire what they make and how they communicate.

To do this, we need to work with people who bring their own unique perspective on the world.

Our internship program reflects this. It gives people from all backgrounds a chance to experience life at a leading insight agency, and gain exposure to a wide variety of projects and challenges.

The paid, full-time position lasts for 12 weeks. It will be eclectic. You’ll pitch in practically on all manner of tasks. There are opportunities across all of our teams, so you could be helping to prepare materials, joining brainstorms and capturing research output, or you could pitch in with our marketing activities - helping to organise events and getting stuck in with our social media output. Perhaps you could help us to track down the hard-to-reach and cutting edge people that can talk to us about the way they see trends evolving.

Whatever you get involved in, you’ll listen to people from all walks of life, discover new ways of looking at the world and ultimately learn how brands can use cultural insight to develop strategy, products and communications.
