Student placement role

Mima is looking for a Design Student for a year-long, hands-on placement supporting both client and internal projects across the range of disciplines and applications in which we work.

You will have a mentor nominated from our fantastic design team. They will work with you throughout the year to ensure you are getting the most from your experience at Mima.

You will need to show that you are great at:

The Placement position of up to 12 months with only one position available. 25 days of paid holiday included. The salary: £19,500 for the full year (pro rata if the placement is less than 12 months)

The role is based in our London studio. We are a hybrid-working company, so it is possible to work from other locations, including home, for some days each week. But the majority of time will be spent in the studio.
