What are the perks of interning at this company?

We are built on a collaborative ethos so it is real team work. We are a smaller team (15) so there are genuine opportunities for hands on experience.

We work on a variety of clients from start-ups to listed businesses.

Technology is the most exciting sector to work in.

Our international outreach from our London office means it is an extremely dynamic environment.

We are based in Dalston and do plenty of team socialising.
