Are you a SpongeBob SquarePants super fan? Did Rugrats rock your world? Do you love your MTV? If you’re into our brands, and have a passion for product development and design - whether toys, clothing, cosmetics, books, homeware or food - then the consumer products internship could be the perfect role for you.

The CP team works with partners to develop best-in-class branded products across our Nickelodeon and MTV portfolio. From design concept through to finished article, we work across a vast range of categories - from a soft drink at the supermarket, to a high-end fashion design collaboration.

  • Conduct regular retail trips to identify new trends and product ideas, and to produce competitor analysis reports to present to the team
  • Design eye-catching presentations for internal and external use
  • Help organise brainstorming sessions to identify new product ideas
  • Assist with creative approvals across our product categories and manage the online system
  • Take sole responsibility for producing our bi-annual best practice catalogue
