Looking to build a career in gaming marketing?

Creative agency Waste is looking for an inquisitive and enthusiastic intern to join our Strategy department, working on gaming clients like Nintendo, Supercell, Riot and beyond!


A little bit about Waste…

Waste is a fan-first creative agency that’s part of the Keyword Studios family. We believe community is the beating heart of a thriving entertainment brand. In the past we’ve been named The Drum’s Agency of the Year, one of Campaign’s Best Places To Work, and one of the UK’s 100 Best Small Companies to work for. We’re also in the top 10 most awarded creative agencies in the UK. 


The Strategy department bridges the gap between brands and fans through discovery (research) and definition (strategies). We write inspirational briefs filled with understanding, killer insights and creative direction that fuels game-changing ideas.


Working alongside a team of talented Strategists, Creatives and Account Handlers, you’ll be assisting on client projects within the gaming sphere. Throughout this internship, you’ll grow your skills in research, data analytics, insight hunting and more.
