Internships:

Unfortunately, we are not currently taking interns. We’ve outlined everything we’re looking for below so keep an eye on this page to see when positions become available.

We are looking for talented and enthusiastic students to help us out with all sorts of projects and events. Due to the progressive nature of the company and the varied projects at hand, you will be expected to be quite flexible.

Please be aware that we can only offer internships to students looking for placements as part of a university course. After we have reviewed your application, and if it is successful, we will then require a letter from your university to show that you are enrolled on a course.

There are opportunities coming up all the time for designers, makers, printers and painters. Take a look at our requirements below and see how you can best get involved. Internships are unpaid – though we do provide lunch money – and run only for two weeks at most.

Design Intern:

2:2 or higher at degree level
Skills in Adobe Creative Suite essential
A laptop with CS4 installed.
Basic digital SLR camera skills
HTML and CSS desirable
A creative eye for shop display
Excellent communication skills

In addition to this we would require that you are flexible, hardworking and self-motivated. It’s nice to have people who are eager to learn and that can follow instructions but we also welcome new ideas and positive productivity.

In return we give you a wonderful opportunity to get involved and make an input. All you have to do is send us a CV in PDF format with a link to your portfolio to nobrowsubs[at]gmail.com. We’ll also require a covering letter outlining any useful experiences. Maybe you’re a master bookbinder or an expert model maker but if we don’t know, then we can’t ensure you get the most out of the experience.

We really appreciate you taking the time to apply for work at Nobrow, but due to limited availability and the number of inquiries we receive, we are only able to respond to successful applications.
