Project & Partnership Coordinator – an internship with purpose and impact

Leaderlab is on the lookout for a future sustainability leader to join our team in a ‘Project & Partnership Coordinator’ internship, for at least 3 months starting August-September 2018.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR?

We are looking for a structured, ‘hands-on’ candidate who can help carry out planning, designing processes, event-management, communication, daily posting and editing of social media.

We expect that you are independent, has strong work ethics, a collaborative spirit and great communication skills.

As we work with Social & Environmental Sustainability, Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) and Circular Economy is essential that you have a personal interest and basic understanding about these fields.

Your specific graduate or post-graduate focus is of lesser importance, as we have previously had team members with backgrounds as varied as International Business and Politics, Sustainable Design and Political Science.

The key requirements are that you:

  • have a strong interest in sustainable development/environmental affairs
  • have the attention to details and deadlines necessary when working with top-tier brands, such as IKEA, Nike, Novozymes, eBay and more.
  • are able to work independently and take initiative, as well as work collaboratively within a very dynamic team setting
  • are quality oriented, well organised and take pride in delivering on your given responsibilities.
  • have experience with Office tools/Google docs, presentation tools (preferably Keynote), Social Media Channels (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram) and as a plus design tools (i.e. Photoshop, Indesign, etc).

Personality is just as important – so if you have ability to hit the ground running, have a great sense of humor and are a curious human being, then apply.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

Your key responsibilities will be planning, projects/event-management, stakeholder relations and communication – including updating website and social media channels.

As our new intern, you will mainly be involved in LAUNCH, a partnership focusing helping innovators scale their solutions through collaboration with companies, investors, technical experts and government officials.

Your work will lead up towards the LAUNCH Forum 2018 that is the main activity and event in our yearly and global innovation challenge.

As an intern in Leaderlab you will be a part of a flat hierarchy in a company with a strong focus on social cohesion, trust, and equal opportunity. You will have ample opportunity for both acquiring new valuable competences , as well as for bringing your skillset and insights into action.
