Associate Product Designer Training Scheme

Full-Time London, Amsterdam, Manchester Closes: 2022-01-14

Moonpig Group wants you (yes, you!)

You’ve received a Moonpig card during the pandemic.
You’ve seen us on TV.
And, now you can’t get that jingle out of your head!
So why not join “!”

Whether you’re a designer by training, entirely self-taught or in the process of changing careers, we want to hear from you!

This scheme covers London, Manchester or Amsterdam (with an opportunity to rotate between all locations upon request). This role will follow a hybrid model – some days in the office, and some days at home.

This is a 12 month full time scheme (40 hours a week). With regular squad rotations over the period to develop you from an Associate level to a Junior Product Designer. We aim to offer you a permanent role at the end of the scheme.

Moonpig Group has been going for 21 years. We’ve delivered over 400 million cards. Continue to win awards for our App and we have a 5* company culture that allows you to bring your whole self to work and flourish.

Who would fit this position?
You might be fresh out of Uni or looking to take a different direction in your career. You may be new to the Design field and have very little experience… but that’s okay. If you are passionate about solving complex design problems and have a willingness to learn, we want to hear from you. So go on… apply now!
