We are thrilled that you’re considering applying for our paid internship opportunities. Here’s how it works:
1. Online Application
To begin, visit our Careers site, find the role(s) that you would like to apply for and complete our online application. We’ll ask you some basic questions and request that you upload your resume, cover letter, and most recent academic transcript. In your cover letter, we would like you to address the following questions:
- Why do you aspire to be a city shaper at Urbis?
- What has inspired you to pursue a career in your chosen discipline?
- Which Urbis project, either past or present, would you like to be involved in and why?
If you’re applying for a Design role, please also attach your portfolio or provide examples of your work.
2. One-way Online Video
If your application stands out to us, we’ll invite you to participate in a one-way online video interview. Rather than a traditional face-to-face interview, you’ll have the flexibility to complete the interview at your own pace and convenience.
Through this one-way video interview, we aim to gain a deeper understanding of your background, career goals, and what drives you.
3. Face-to-face Interview
Shortlisted candidates will be invited to one of our offices for a face-to-face interview. You’ll have the chance to meet our talented and diverse staff, who are passionate about shaping cities and making a positive impact. You’ll get a glimpse of our vibrant office environment and witness firsthand the dynamic atmosphere that drives our work.
4. Case Study
Depending on the practice area you’re applying for, we may ask you to complete a case study. This exercise enables us to evaluate your skills and abilities in a real-world scenario.
If you’re successful, our People & Culture team will reach out to you with a phone call to formally offer you a position in our program. Congratulations! Your exciting journey with Urbis begins.
To be considered for our student roles, the following criteria apply:
- You must be enrolled in a course relevant to the practice area you’re applying for
- You need to be undertaking your studies throughout the duration of the student internship program
- You should be available to work 2-4 days per week once the program begins
Please note that applications must be submitted online via our careers site. Kindly refrain from emailing your application to the People & Culture team.
While we receive a high volume of applications each year, we regretfully cannot provide individual feedback. However, we will notify you of the outcome of your application by the end of our recruitment process. We encourage you to consider reapplying for future program intakes as well.
