What is the Jumpstart programme?

This is a 6 month programme. You can join as a trainee consultant or a trainee designer in London or Manchester. You’ll receive a supported, hands-on immersion into the world of innovation consulting and digital design with exposure to multiple clients and industries. We’re looking for curious, self-starting people who can bring something new to Magnetic. After 6 months if it all goes well, and you’d like to stay, there’s a permanent role for you.

Jumpstart details

  • 6 month contract

    Successful Jumpstarters will be offered a permanent role with us as a junior member of the team.

  • £22-25k salary

    This is your starting salary with an automatic pay rise if you accept a permanent role.

  • London or Manchester

    We have offices in London and Manchester and we’d love applications to both.

“From day one I knew I was in the right place. The trust placed in me, the multiple avenues for growth open for me to take, and the openness with which I was embraced and guided to become a better consultant set the programme above anywhere else I considered.”

Aidas Zvirblis, Junior Innovation Consultant

What to expect

At Magnetic every project we work on is unique; they each tackle different challenges in different industries. Some of the things you could expect to work on include:

  • Customer research

    Bring the needs and experiences of customers into focus by interviewing, observing, surveying, and finding other creative ways to immerse yourself in their world.

  • Business transformation

    Help clients create entrepreneurial, customer-obsessed cultures by working with them shoulder-to-shoulder.

  • Proposition design

    Create new services, products, experiences, and even brands for some of the UK’s best-known companies and then test them out in experiments.

  • Visual design

    Originate and execute world-class visual design concepts, identities, presentations, and more alongside our in-house design team.
