RSA Student Design Awards Intern

£18,564 per annum (equivalent to the London Living Wage, pro rata) + benefits

35 hours per week, Fixed term for 7 months from 5 March 2018, based in London WC2

The RSA Student Design Awards team is now looking for an intern to work with us for the next seven months to provide general support to the team across events, admin and communications. The intern will help with many aspects of the team’s work including assisting with running the competition judging sessions, publicising winners and helping to plan the awards ceremony as well as creating graphics and preparing content for the launch of our 2018/19 briefs. The ideal applicant will have an interest in design education, design for social good, and empowering the next generation of designers. This opportunity would most suit someone who is keen to get stuck in assisting with the management of a fast-paced design competition and curriculum. We’re looking for someone who has strong Creative Suite skills and can assist us in developing communications materials, but who is happy to spend a considerable amount of time organizing logistics, coordinating events, and undertaking a variety of other administrative and practical programme delivery tasks.)

Closing date: Midnight 21 January 2018

More about this role


I was given real responsibility and felt like a core part of the team from day one. The RSA internship is a great way to learn and develop new skills – I can’t recommend it enough.

Who can apply?

The RSA welcomes new perspectives on its work and our interns will come from many different backgrounds and disciplines - from recent graduates and those wanting a sabbatical, to those looking to change career. We're looking for hard-working, open-minded and collaborative people who want to change the world.


When and where?

Internships generally last six months, and are usually advertised in the spring and autumn each year. The start and anticipated duration of internships will be advertised with each opportunity, along with details of how to apply. The majority of our interns will be based with us at our head office on John Adam Street, London, although this might differ on a project-by-project basis.

This whole experience has been really enjoyable and insightful. I’ve gained skills here that I wouldn’t have had the chance to develop elsewhere, it’s the perfect opportunity for personal development. I encourage everyone to take advantage of and apply for the RSA internships!
