About the Company

Business as usual isn’t working. It is getting hot in here, the ice caps are melting, the money and opportunity are stuck in Silicon Valley, many people are disinvited and disincluded from participating. Our current model of work involves too much commuting, polluting and is not sustainable for people, planet or more equal purpose.
The AnywhereWorks mission is simple: to change how the world works, by helping people work anywhere.

FULL Creative is a foundry for new ideas - AnywhereWorks being a major one. Over twenty years, they’ve evolved from being a long-distance carrier based in their founder’s garage into a provider of diverse products and services with a mission to change how the world works.”

The Role

● We are looking for people who care. Business and tech are tools that could be used for good or ill - we want folks working and thinking toward the net good side of that dichotomy.
● We are not looking for perfect. Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good. Learn-it-alls before know-it-alls. Perfect need not apply.
● We need a few interns to help us think differently and connect people and businesses to customers in more human ways.
● Space is limited. Time is limited, too. Seriously.
● We have designers, developers, misfits, enthusiasts from here, there and Anywhere. Working and collaborating to try to find product market fit. To help the world work differently.
● The secret to happiness is low expectations. You will likely fail if you apply and fail if you get the role. We are used to failing and made of failures. Feel free to fail, just don’t fail to try.
● If this role speaks to you, let’s talk and see what’s possible.
● We are looking for the will, together we’ll find the way.
● Help us move the world to working Anywhere.

As this is an internship programme that is genuinely interested in your development and growth, there will be plenty of emphasis placed on generating creative ideas between you, your fellow interns and the wider product and marketing teams at FULL.
You will work two days in the office in central Edinburgh and the remainder of your hours from home.
