Students

London 035

We work with all kinds of students, with opportunities at every level from undergrad to MBA. All are designed to challenge, inspire and develop you, no matter when in your studies you join us. 

You could get involved in anything from the technical side of game creation to market analysis, to financial modeling. Whatever your passion is, you can spend anywhere from 8 weeks to 6 months getting under the skin of it, exploring our industry and learning from some of the best people. You can even do a Master Thesis or Vocational Internship with us.

Kingternships

For summer internships apply October-December. Autumn internships apply in February-April and spring internships, apply in September-November. Our Kingternships are organised by craft (Design, Technology, Art, etc…) and the job description will let you know if a position is available in multiple locations.

Generally these last 2 to 6 months. If you’re Barcelona, London or Berlin bound they take place in the summer. Stockholm and Malmö happen in the spring or autumn. Usually the thesis or vocational internship will be set by your school or university.

MBA

You've just got your MBA and are working hard to get one. We like that. Bring that discipline and expertise to King, and you'll work closely with our leadership team and business performance units on critical projects - the kind of projects that could well determine our strategy for the short and long term. We offer both summer placements and full time opportunities, and a genuine chance to help evolve our business. 

Applications for MBA Internships are open between February and March and can take place over the summer or be full-time opportunities.

Grad/Trainee program

We look at it this way. If you've managed to combine hard work with fun at University, why can't you do the same after you've graduated? Here, you will. Whilst we see our Kingternships as a great route into King, we sometimes offer graduate roles that will help you make the leap from student to employee in your chosen field. If you choose to join our Trainee Program in Business Performance, this will take you on a challenging journey where you will work to evolve our games and our business.

Trainee applications usually open the autumn before the program and graduate roles normally open in spring. Our Business Performance Trainee Program kicks off in August/early September. It’s an 18-month program where you’ll rotate across three different departments before moving into a role in one of them. Graduate roles normally start around the same time of year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Whichever route you take you’ll get a competitive compensation package and if you're relocating, we'll help you with travel and accommodation costs. There are loads of other perks like invites to events, giveaways, game launches and Q&A sessions with our leadership team.

At King some of us live to game, but all of us believe in the power of play. You don’t need to be a gamer, just passionate about what you do and ambitious to achieve it. A love for games can come later. Funnily enough, it always does.

If you’re a recent graduate, then dive on in.

Look at the job descriptions of the roles on offer and make sure you choose one that matches your academic focus and interests.

Include all the information or documents we ask for – and submit them in English. And adding a cover letter is a great way to tell us why you’re the right person and why you’re excited about the role!

For lots of our roles you will need to do a pre-recorded video interview.

These help us get to know you and if you’re applying for a tech role give us a chance to see what you can do with coding and other tech tasks. You may then have a video conference or face to face interview with the team and be asked to share a portfolio or show us your skills in a role-specific test.

Show us you really want to work with us. Do your research, dig into our history, and have an opinion on our games. Checkout our values too and think about what they mean to you.

Understanding all the role responsibilities and how your skills match them is key and come armed with questions – this is your chance to quiz us! And we care about what you say, not what we see. So wear whatever makes you feel comfortable.

Drop our team a line at students@king.com for more information. They will usually get back to you in a couple of days.

Awesome! Thanks for applying. Hang tight for a few weeks as we’ll be carefully reviewing applications. And don’t forget to connect with us on social channels for the latest updates.
