Job Details

As one of our Interns you will work hard to support our amazing team across our business, but with a particular focus on supporting our project teams as part of our high impact consultancy.

  • the coordination of project tasks (our interns play indispensable roles keeping project teams on track)
  • workshop facilitation, including meeting our ambitious clients and other stakeholders
