Who are Indigo? At Indigo we are passionate about revolutionising careers education. Whilst we are a relatively new name in the field of educational technology, our pedigree goes back decades. We were born of Trotman Publishing, the leading name in careers and university guidance publications, whose books are trusted by almost every secondary school in the UK. Indigo was created and launched to take this information and combine it with technology, transforming it into a form fit for 21st century classrooms.
We believe careers education is a truly vital part of a student’s educational journey, but who could look back on their own and say they genuinely had all the information they needed? We believe that the best resources should be available to both student and teacher. Put simply, we believe careers education deserves better.
As part of our drive to expand and develop our core Indigo product, this summer we are hosting an intern program to assist our small core team. We are seeking dynamic, driven and talented undergraduate-level recruits (or fresh graduates) to join our team for a period between June and September (it need not be the entire window, university commitments permitting).
What will you be doing? Working within a small team, you will be assisting with a number of development projects (both research-based and creative) planned for the summer, designed to expand the breadth of information within our Indigo online resource – making it even more useful to school students looking to plan their career and university next steps. Days will be varied, you could be researching the latest information in a particular career pathway, exploring sports and social offerings at universities, or assisting at a filming session on location as we grow our video resources.
Ideally, you will have:
A high degree of organisational and problem-solving ability; specifically, the ability to work as self-starter.
Respect for detail; ability to execute accurately at a high level without excess supervision.
Excellent communication skills – verbal, pictorial and numerical.
A desire to learn and grow professionally.
General computer skills including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint.
The ability to embrace and live Indigo’s core brand values, plus have a passion for our work and education more widely. We’re passionate about what we do, you should be too.
Why you will love working for Indigo So what makes a good “Indigo-er”? We’re a small but productive group. Indigo is committed to supporting the growth and diversity of our team, it is a place where you can be yourself. We’re informal, passionate about our field, and a little bit quirky.
You will get experience of working within the education technology sector, learn about how school resources are conceived and developed, develop research, creative, communication and marketing skills, as well as get a chance to behands on with a number of projects – both research-based and creative.
In short, this is an opportunity to gain some valuable experience whilst making a real difference for future students.
