    Freelance Opportunities

  • During lockdown we reluctantly suspended our internships – we felt the lack of direct studio and team experience would reduce the value in the placement. We are hoping to reintroduce these in Summer 2024. In the meantime there are opportunities available for STUDIO EXPERIENCE – please see below.

    We offer two formal internships  – one during the Summer months and one at the start of a new year. These last from between 8 to 12 weeks and we take on a single intern at a time. The internships are very structured and you will be introduced to studio life, be offered opportunities for specific training or professional experience and work alongside the ISO team on Live Projects and our research work. We look for talented, motivated individuals across communication design, motion graphics and animation, film-making, games and interaction design, creative technologies, writing, research, and digital communications.

    The next space will run between Jan and June and we are accepting applicants now.

    The posts are very competitive so please apply with the following:

    – Cover letter introducing yourself and your work and explaining why you think you would be a good addition to the studio

    – CV with two references

    – Digital link to an online portfolio and/or showreel

    – Your available dates and the duration of internship you are looking for

    Please submit to
    opportunities@isodesign.co.uk with the header “ISO – INTERNSHIP”

    For UK applicants you will be paid at the Living Wage. For overseas applicants please include details of whether the internship is an element of your course and your eligibility to study or work in the UK.


  • Throughout the year we take in applicants looking for studio experience working on live projects. These are very much dependent upon the type of projects coming through the studio at any moment and the levels of support we are looking for. Unlike our Internship scheme these are not scheduled and can run from just a couple of weeks to a number of months and are very much led by the studio requirements and where we are looking for specific support. We are interested in meeting people with a broad skill range and experience in design and video production, interaction design, digital content management, technical research and user testing. Opportunities can also arise in creative writing, storyboarding and visualisation, social media and digital marketing, content research and reporting.

    All posts are fixed term and paid at the Living Wage.

    Please submit your interest with the following:

    – Cover letter introducing yourself and your work

    – Digital link to an online portfolio and/or showreel
