6 month Internship (Paid)

Sparks Grove is an experience design firm and a division of management consulting firm North Highland. We help businesses with their challenges, by creating experiences that matter and building things people love to use. What that actually means is that we could be working anywhere from a huge corporate IT department, to the head of marketing at a startup, doing anything from designing a new customer journey to building a new website.

We were formed in the UK when a group of management consultants decided that there must be a more interesting and fun way to solve some of the problems that massive organisations face. A lot of the time, this isn’t the glitzy glamourous work that a big advertising firm or digital agency will do for clients, but it’s just as important. A big part of our work comes from helping companies to improve their employee experience, and bring it more in line with the great experiences we take for granted in our daily lives.

Sparks Grove is well established in the US, and we’ve just opened our first office in the UK.
Our home in Holborn Circus is open, energetic and fast growing. Our high calibre people bring their whole selves to work and have a passion for building our business as well as helping our clients.

We’re looking for an experience design intern to join our team.
Sparks Grove interns are bright, capable and versatile. They’re the future of our business, and their curiosity drives the direction of the company. They’re comfortable getting involved in all aspects of Sparks Grove life, working with the team on various different projects.
We have 3 core offerings here at Sparks Grove. As an intern you can choose to rotate through each, or - if you prefer - focus on developing a deep knowledge of one.

Creative Engagement: We build super effective comms teams and creative campaigns based on what audiences actually want. You’ll help us make complex messages simple, and boring things fun.

Customer Experience: We design and developing new propositions for clients based on user needs and insights. You’ll helping clients implement market-leading experiences we’d like to have ourselves.

Product Development: We build and launch apps and technology people actually want to use. Whether it’s bouncing between client demos or managing dev teams; you’ll build some tangible and compelling customer and employee products.
Best thing about a Sparks Grove internship? You get to shape your role. We want the best people in our team, and know that letting our people follow their curiosity and shape their own career gives the best results.
And you’ll never have to fetch anyone coffee. Unless you want to, of course.

This job is for you if:

You want to learn fast. You’ve got an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and the drive to go out and get it. By the way, learning fast means failing fast too. That’s OK. It’s how we progress.

You’ve got design skills. You may or may not have a “traditional” design background, but you've got an eye for quality, and an understanding of the principles of good design and can articulate what makes a good customer experience.

You want to build something. You want to get in at the ground floor of a small, vibrant business and put your own stamp on it. Help shape the culture, traditions and client base, build the place where you want to work.

You’re a great communicator.  You can explain things in a simple, meaningful, compelling way.

You’re creative. You’re flexible and open-minded, and love coming up with new and exciting ways to solve problems.

And yes. We are fussy about who joins our team. Thanks for noticing. It’s a cliché, but our people are our biggest asset. We work hard to find the right ones.
