As One

Your internship programme
designed by Fjord London

About the internship in London
We asked ourselves: what would the most powerful internship in the world of design and innovation look like? The result is what we believe to be the best framework to help you develop, and experience what it means to be a Fjordian. We would like to invite you to become part of it, and to work and play with us — As One.
How it works
The internship is three months long, in which time you’ll move through the phases at the pace that you feel comfortable with. You will have a personal mentor to help you navigate your path in the process.
Shadow and Learn
You’ll start by shadowing and learning from other Fjordians in your craft. This is to help you to get familiar with the studio, our processes and what it feels like to be a Fjordian.
A Live Role
Once you’ve settled in, you’ll become an integral part of a project team, taking more responsibility and ownership of the deliverables.
Time to Shine
You’ve proven yourself and become a key member of your team! Now it’s your time to shine, take on some challenges and show us your Fjord factor!
What it is
01
Opportunity to learn from the leading talent in the industry.
02
A paid internship scheme with exposure to client work and Accenture network.
03
Fun working environment with social events and opportunities to learn and connect across crafts.
04
A personal mentorship scheme to help you find the role that fits you best within the design world.
What it isn’t
01
A cheap source of design work. You won’t be asked to make coffee or fix someone else’s PowerPoints.
02
A guaranteed permanent job. We have many examples of designers who started their career at Fjord on the intern scheme, but it’s not always possible to hire every intern we like.
03
An Apprenticeship. We actively encourage applications from all backgrounds, but would expect you to have undergone some level of higher education design training.
04
Graduate programme.
Success Stories

“It’s important that you consider what you want to do and what you would like to take away from your experience, that’s typically where we see interns doing the best job and getting the most out of their internship.”
What We're Looking For

We’re after the Fjord fit: you’re curious, self-motivated and believe in the power of team play. You have great interpersonal skills and value peer relationships over hierarchies. You’re passionate about the design craft and finding simplicity in a complex world.

They all overlap in our design process so you're likely to be a fit for more than just one.
