ZURU is one of the fastest-growing and most disruptive companies in the world.

ZURU has quickly grown to over 5000 + team members in over 30 locations. The company started in toys and quickly became one of the largest in the world, competing with comparatively historic household names by disrupting through automation and innovation. Award-winning brands include Bunch O Balloons,  Mini Brands, XSHOT, Rainbocorns and Smashers. After so much success, the brothers took that model and applied it to consumer goods, creating their second division, ZURU Edge, and redefining the meaning of FMCG, becoming the fastest-growing consumer goods company in the world with new-age brands including MONDAY Haircare, Rascal + Friends, Dose &  Co, NOOD and Bonkers. ZURU Tech, the newest division, is the company's moon shoot project where they endeavour to truly change the world by disrupting the construction industry. With 600 engineers working across 7 locations ZURU Tech towards the ultimate goal of disrupting how the world builds.

At ZURU, we celebrate mistakes and encourage questions, providing a fail-fast environment that fosters growth and learning. 
Internships are an ideal entry point into ZURU. In your first week, you'll start with a comprehensive onboarding experience, have the opportunity to connect with other interns, leaders, and the wider team, and immerse yourself in every aspect of ZURU's high-performance culture. You'll wrap up your internship with a presentation of all you have achieved over the 12 weeks to your fellow interns and team members.
