What if your mission was to transform an age-old sector and immediately improve the lives of millions of refugees around the world?

We're much like a startup within a big organization. We save lives by building digital tools. We call ourselves the D Team.

And we're looking for bright and creative interns! As a Visual Design Intern/Working Student at NRC D Team, you will be part of sharing NRC’s missions via different internal and external channels. You will learn how visual communication contributes to effective messaging and content creation.

Sounds interesting? Learn more and apply via Angel.


  • Embed directly in our highly motivated teams, working on a project in close collaboration with a Design Lead and Product Lead to achieve common goals and learn together.
  • Develop clear and engaging visual assets across multiple channels (web, digital and presentation materials) for products produced by D Team.
  • Help us develop our brand, visual identity, and style by creating a visual language that speaks our mission and team culture.
  • Translate information into visually stimulating and intellectually engaging typography, illustration and infographics. You can make visual content even more engaging by applying simple animations or interaction design.
  • While this is a hands-on visual design role, you will also be encouraged to think strategically to identify and develop solutions that transform our existing products. We invite you to participate in user research by shadowing user interviews and stakeholder interviews and incorporate insights into your outputs.

  • Great attention to detail in typography, composition, and craft, with a knack for visual storytelling.
  • Manage multiple design projects at once, maintaining an organized system to ensure deadlines are met.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication.


  • Experience with photography or video—either professional or personal—is a plus.
  • Experience with motion and animation(Adobe AfterEffects)—either professional or personal—is a plus.
  • Experience in NGO, non-profit, public or social sector would be nice but not required.
