Expression of interest

Our mission is to seek out areas of social need and policy failure and make transformational change using design and technology. We believe that government, organisations and businesses can be a force of good but there can be a gap between their understanding of, and ability to meet the expectations of those needing positive change. Our job is to use design, technology and production to narrow the gap between those with the power and responsibility to make a positive change, and those who need it. 

If you’d like to join us but didn’t see a current job vacancy that meets your skill set or interest, or are interested in an internship, please submit your details below. Every week we receive requests to meet our team members to discuss career opportunities, which makes it difficult to respond to them all. Our advice — if you are looking for a role or career advice — is reach out directly to someone you know at Portable and/or come along to one of our regular events to connect. 

How to submit your application:

We might not have the perfect role for you yet, but we’ll keep your application on file for when the role becomes available. 

To apply send us your resume and cover letter answering the following questions. 

  1. What job do you wish we had available for you? 
  2. Why Portable is right for you, and why are you right for Portable? 
  3. Provide an example of your work. This could be your portfolio, links to websites you played a role in creating or a written description of your role in recent projects
