IDEO London is in search of an intern to join our Digital Transformation (DiT) team.
IDEO has long been at the forefront of creating change through design, and now we have partnered with Public Digital who have years of experience in DiT and are the team behind the UK's Government Digital Service. Together we are applying the culture, practices, processes, and technologies of the Internet-era on companies and organizations, so they can efficiently build and deliver desirable digital products and services, as well as improve the overall experience for their customers.
The process of enabling companies to deliver digital services is often as important as the human-centered digital products and services that we design together. IDEO has always focused on positive impact in the world, and as such we think the work of the DiT team is key to our strategy of enabling impact for our clients.
As the cornerstone of the IDEO DiT team, you will be the ‘go to’ person for coordination - understanding the landscape of activities across the company, assisting in the production of content for internal and external audiences, as well as bringing together people from our network including teams, clients, and partners.
Ask anyone in IDEO London why they like working here, and they will say it’s our people and the diversity of projects. It’s a place where you can solve complex challenges for our clients or the organisation, alongside thoughtful, intelligent individuals who lead with curiosity, empathy, and optimism.
We certainly work hard, but we also intentionally focus on our culture to design opportunities for us to pause, create, and connect.
We encourage our community to bring their whole selves to work and respect the need for work-life balance. IDEO provides you support and development throughout your time here, while allowing for autonomy for you to steer, grow and develop your career.
IDEO has had a studio in London for over 30 years. Over that time, we have grown in the scale of our influence and impact. Although we still work across every industry and sector, our consistent purpose to deliver positive impact through design has meant that we have enabled companies all over the world to be creatively competitive.
As part of your application, we would like you to think about one company that could be transformed through a digital lens.
Identify some of the features of the product/service/business model that you would change, and if you are feeling brave, some recommendations for future solutions.
Please include your answer as part of your cover letter, in less than 300 words, plus any images. Best of luck!
Please submit your application, with your CV and/or portfolio, as well as the answer to your pop quiz.
We are looking for candidates that can join the team immediately. This is a paid internship, for a duration of 6 months.
For this particular internship IDEO can only accept applications from candidates that are already legally entitled to work in the UK, unfortunately, we cannot offer sponsorship this time.
