Our Internship Programme

How it works

  • We offer three internships a year, lasting roughly eight weeks, running from February to March, June to July, and October to November

  • The role is full-time, paid, based at our office in King’s Cross, London

  • This is a fixed-length position; there should be no expectation of a permanent role at the end. However, there have been occasions when we have offered permanent roles when a business need existed and the intern had impressed the team

Who we are looking for

  • We are a team of "border-crossers" - by this we mean we are motivated to and experienced in crossing the border between the world of customers and the world of business. As a result we welcome people from a range of backgrounds, whether it be customer (marketing, communications) or business (management consulting, strategy) or a mix of the two

  • Strong academic credentials are required (minimum 2As at A level and received/expecting a 2.1 or a 1st class degree from university). Previous professional experience in an agency or consultancy is welcomed but not required

  • Candidates should have a genuine interest in what we do as a potential career

  • Our ideal individual would be personable, ambitious, engaged, positive, and collaborative. They would recognise the benefits and challenges of working for a small but perfectly-formed team and willing to learn​ at a fast pace

What we expect from the role

  • Joining The Foundation gives you exposure to a talented and supportive peer group with access to cutting-edge client challenges and our unique way of delivering value to clients

  • We expect you to positively contribute to project delivery from the outset, so this is a fantastic opportunity to understand the role whilst developing skills, behaviours and content knowledge

  • We offer a supportive yet challenging culture where contribution and impact are positively recognised and rewarded

  • We welcome ambitious and motivated people who are looking to develop a skill set which can be used in your future career
