Internship Programme

Our 12-week, project-based internship programmes are an experiential learning initiative to give emerging talent insight into being part of a digital agency, and all about life at xDesign, including our graduate programmes.

Everything you need to succeed

What you can expect

Hands-on project experience

Whatever department you’re interning for, learn first-hand what’s involved in the specialty, as well as the digital world, and work as part of a cross-functional team.

Bite-sized development sessions

Take advantage of xDesign’s learning and development offering and elevate your experience with our regular development sessions.

Valuable insight

Into real-life project work, what it’s like to work in a digital agency, and where you might want to take your career. You’ll also learn more about our other early careers opportunities, such as our graduate programmes, in case that is the next step in your continuous learning journey with xDesign.

Future success

You’ll gain valuable experience, knowledge, and everything in between to help kickstart your career.

What we’re looking for?

Seeking potential

We truly believe there is no wrong path into a career in tech. You may be at university and want some experience, taking part in a bootcamp, or maybe you’ve been learning in your spare time.

We’re primarily focused on people with basic knowledge of their chosen specialty, a good attitude, and who are passionate about a career in tech. If you fit into these three things, we encourage you to apply!

Working flexibly

With offices in central Edinburgh and Leeds, we’re looking for candidates who are available for hybrid working in either of these locations (in the office three days a week).

This way, our interns will be able to get the full experience of life at xDesign, with a mixture of home and office working.

Embracing our values

With every application process, we look for people who embrace our values: we challenge, we care, we collaborate. Our people act with integrity and challenge our clients, and each other, in pursuit of better solutions.

We care about our craft, colleagues, clients and their customers. And we are all equal. Individually we are brilliant, together we are unstoppable.
