Motion Design Internship


Dept has an exciting opportunity for someone looking to launch their career in motion design. Working with our Manchester creative team, this paid summer internship is designed to nurture design talent and provide the opportunity to create motion design assets that can be used in your portfolio. 

The work will be varied; you will support Dept’s marketing team in the creation of motion assets to be used across our social media platforms, help us to launch our refreshed brand, and support our client projects with your design skills. You will be mentored by Dept’s Senior Motion Designer and Head of Design, and spend time with the creative team, honing your skills and learning new ones.

As pioneers of the DEMO Festival, the world’s largest motion design festival, you will have the opportunity to learn from some of the best.

The internship is from June to September, and is based at our Manchester city centre office, with some flexible working. This opportunity is open to anyone seeking to develop their career in a motion design role, and is perfect for someone who already has a little experience, whether self-taught, from a previous role, or an education course. Having some experience in software such as After Effects and Premiere Pro is a bonus.  So long as you love design, you are welcome to apply. 

To apply, simply send us a message and tell us why this internship would be important to you. Please share any examples of your work that you’re proud of.
