About the programme

In 2023, we founded a Design Interns programme and we’re delighted to welcome new talent to our award-winning team again. 

We are looking for eight rising stars to join our Design team for a ten week paid internship programme. Design at Wise is a multidisciplinary team and we sometimes call it capital ‘D’ Design. While our craft is varied, human-centered design and design thinking unite us.
