Working at Stripe Partners

Stripe Partners is a diverse international team of specialists from different fields and backgrounds. We are always searching for new talent to enrich our cohort.


Internship Programme

We run two intern programmes a year. Both offer recent graduates the opportunity to work with us for three months. These are fully paid positions and offered to candidates as a trial for them and us. Interns who successfully complete their three months with us become Junior Consultants.

We are always looking for people with…

Academic excellence and analytical rigour in the social sciences and / or design.
Determination to create impact in the business world.
Passion for understanding other people’s realities.
Curiosity to learn, make mistakes and ask for help.
Unwavering energy and positivity in teams.

Our Values

Here are the principles that help us thrive; they were shaped by us all and continue to evolve with every new member of the team

Breaking bread together

From weekly lunches & Scandinavian “Fikas” to annual away days in country houses, we love spending time together as a team.

Intellectual curiosity

We encourage team members to actively engage in the latest academic literature relevant to our Project work.

Ethnographic integrity

Join Stripe Partners and you join a team of expert ethnographers. We curate bespoke methods on each project, improvise in-field to solve client questions and step out of our comfort zones.

Develop fast

We work side by side as a whole team – from the Partners to consultants – which means you learn, grow and develop fast from experts with decades of knowledge.

Client exposure

We pride ourselves in working shoulder to shoulder with senior executives to solve their most difficult problems.

Interesting visitors & discussions

We invite specialist speakers to share their expertise in order to stimulate, question and inform our thinking.

Well-being matters

We know that if we take care of ourselves we’ll create better results for our clients

Business know-how

Learn how to consult on some of the world’s most difficult business challenges

Current Vacancies

Research Intern

Applications close 6th January

It’s a great time to be a social scientist. The (paid) research internship at Stripe Partners will show you what you can do in business with your academic training.

We have an opening for an intern to join us full time for 3-months. This is an opportunity to secure experience with a consultancy with blue chip clients doing work globally. If it’s a good fit, we would look to make this a full-time graduate position.

Please apply by emailing with your CV and a covering letter telling us about your relevant experience and why you’re interested. Let us know about your career ambition, what you want from an internship with us and what you’ll bring to the table.

This position is only available to people with the existing right to work in the EU.

The key qualities we’re seeking

Storytellers with an eye for identifying and explaining the important detail from a mass of unstructured data.

Quick learners who are happy to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in.

Inquisitive thinkers that are equally curious about human behaviour and how companies can succeed by understanding it better.

Candidates who will thrive in flexible and fluid working environment, who prioritise what needs to be done over a rigid job description.

Languages are a bonus. We work globally.

What you will do

Work across engagements from planning to completion with plenty of opportunities to undertake ethnographic fieldwork in the UK and beyond.

Collaborate with leading ethnographic researchers and strategists on tough engagements for major, international clients.

Learn how to translate ethnographic fieldwork into insights, ideas and recommendations that have an impact (and aren’t just ‘interesting’).

Improve your communication, presentation and writing skills at the intersection of business and social sciences.
