Are you our next intern? Meld is thrilled to announce two internship openings in April 2020. Apply now for a spot in our Melbourne studio or our Sydney studio.

About us

Meld Studios uses a participatory design process to solve complex challenges for organisations and society. Whether it’s a visitor and service experience of a museum or library, creating an organisation’s sustainability plan, creating a partnership model, redesigning how policy is developed, or developing internal design capability, core to all of this, we believe we need to bring the right people together to explore future possibilities.

What does a Meld intern look like?

At Meld we value diversity of thinking and that’s what we look for when selecting our interns. You may have just graduated from a design, psychology, anthropology, or business course. Or you may be a seasoned professional looking for a sideways move into human-centred design. Either way, you are naturally curious, proactive, collaborative and resilient.

You can come from anywhere in the world. If you’re coming from overseas you will need to arrange and pay for your own travel, visa and accommodation.

What’s in it for you?

It’s a full-time, paid 3-month position. You will experience the philosophy, approach and dynamic of a studio where Design is used as a tool to bring people together in solving complex challenges and  improving the lives of people and the world around them. 

You will actively participate in external client projects, or in an internal development project, or even a bit of both, and participate in studio life. 

Our internships do not typically result in a full-time role. Think of your time with us as a learning opportunity to support your overall transition into the field of human-centred design. Towards the end of your internship we will provide advice on how to update your CV and position yourself for future roles.

What’s in it for us?

We love the energy and fresh perspective that new people bring to our team. We want to learn from you as much as you learn from us. We also feel good about helping people transition into our industry.

Key dates to know

Applications will close at 5pm on the 20th January, 2020 (Sydney NSW time).
We’ll be busy reviewing applications and get back to you by the 29th January, 2020.
We’ll have some informal chats with a narrowed pool of candidates from the 29th January, 2020.
We’ll select our April interns by the 4th February, 2020.

We open our internship applications on a quarterly basis depending on our ability to support our interns with full time work. This means we may accept interns this quarter, however we may not next quarter. Keep an eye on our website for openings for the following quarter.

How to apply?

We want to get a sense for who you are, what your passions are, why you’re interested in using design to solve complex challenges and whether we’re a good match for each other. 

Fill out our application form! In it, we’ll ask you a few questions, give you a chance to share your CV or portfolio (don’t stress if you don’t have one) and a short video.
