Recruitment is NOW OPEN for our award-winning product design training!

The role

Are you a creative problem solver? Do you enjoy learning by doing?


Flipside is a 12 week, paid, agency-led digital product design training programme. Created with Made by Many, ustwo, Beyond, Pixeled Eggs, BIO Agency, Reading Room and Sennep, it's aimed at helping young East Londoners break into the digital industry and start creating digital products.

We believe to be successful at a digital agency you should have the mindsets, skills and behaviours that allow you to see opportunities where others might see problems, be able to create the world you want to be a part of and spark positive change.

What you will get:

  • 3 months of exclusive hands-on training led by some of the best digital agencies in the world

  • Live group projects to build your portfolio

  • A rotating programme with multiple agencies to learn and network with

  • A guaranteed interview for a number of paid placements for those who complete

  • An industry mentor to support you in achieving your goals

  • A training bursary of £200 per week to cover travel, food expenses and a bit extra for the duration of training (up to £2500 for the duration)

Flipside trainees will work with different digital agencies who will develop the way you learn, approach problems and find solutions so that you can be the flexible, adaptable and creative trainee that the industry needs.

Regardless of where your interest is - or even if you’re not sure yet - with a flexible and current/relevant approach to training, you'll have the opportunity to learn from the best in the industry, get your hands dirty making real products for real people and establish the groundwork you'll need for a bright future.
