Work Experience

Are you at College or University and looking for some industry work experience?

Here at MadeByShape we offer select work placements per year to help develop and nurture the newest talent on the block. We feel that a studio environment, a live atmosphere helps develop that individual. We are always on the search for standout candidates who are looking to learn and develop their skills in a digital agency in Manchester.

Purpose of the role...

There's just certain aspects of the industry you can't solely learn from University. For example; Time Management is completely different. At Uni you might get 12 weeks to complete a project, but in the real world you might only have 1 week to finish the job. Within this time you might also have minor tweaks, emails to deal with, and clients to manage.

Speaking to clients, managing their expectations and listening to feedback is all vital too. That's why we offer all our work placements on the basis that you WILL be working on live projects and getting stuck in, rather than just answering the phone and making tea and coffee for guests.

"Working in the studio full time has made me realise that when you love what you’re doing it doesn’t feel like work at all, and getting out of bed every morning to come to work doesn’t have to feel like a chore. It is different to what I have been used to the last two years, but the studio is a really easy environment to work in." Kirsty Meredith
