The Start… Design Bridge London’s new Junior Programme

Every year we bring in a new wave of fresh talent to our creative, client management and strategy teams, and for 2021 we’re excited to share the details and officially launch The Start, our London Studio’s brand new junior programme.

With a mix of paid placements and opportunities up for grabs across different teams, and the potential for a full-time role at the end of it, The Start replaces our previous Client Servicing & Strategy graduate scheme and our Dog’s Bollocks Student Awards design competition, and it’s open to anyone at the start of their career in creative, design, client management or strategy.

How to apply

We’re pleased to be partnering with The Guardian to set a brief for applicants to show us what they can do: Change the world.

In short, we’re asking applicants to select an article from the first issue of The Guardian this year (you’ll find access to this in the briefing document), choose a brand you feel passionate about, and deliver a response that takes either a Creative, Client Management or Strategy pathway.

You’ll find all of the information and guidance you need in the briefing document PDF below – click the following image to open it up (note: this will open in a new tab or browser, so check your browser permissions if it doesn’t work first time):


Once you have put your response to the brief together you’ll need to submit this via the application form, which will be live on our Careers page from Thursday 1st April.

The Deadline

All applications must be submitted by Sunday 31st May, and you’ll find details on the next steps in the briefing document.

So, are you ready to start?
