What we can offer

An exciting and educational internship through which you experience being part of an international virtual working environment and a smart, brave and passionate team. During your internship, you will gain insight into, and knowledge of, how a global non-profit organization is structured and works in practice. With a focus on the HR framework, you will learn about and take an active part in various procedures regarding recruitment, employment, onboarding, learning & development, success and retention planning as well as organizational and strategic team development. With the necessary support, you will be given the opportunity to take ownership of your own tasks and projects and gain practical experience in project management and self-leadership. We highly value our interns for their skills and the energy they bring to our team and offer a great opportunity for you to gain confidence and develop your workplace skills.

During your internship

You will be working directly with the small Global HR Team, providing support with different and engaging day-to-day tasks including the administration, coordination, facilitation and development of our key HR processes and tools. You will have the opportunity to combine your work with longer projects and varying tasks, such as qualitative and quantitative data collection, research, analysis, surveys and presentations, always in collaboration with us. A typical working day is between 9 and 17, but working hours are flexible and can be done remotely. Minimum every other week you will have a check-in with your supervisor, where your work tasks and development will be followed up on.

Who you are

A student: We expect you to be a student either at the Bachelor’s or Master’s level and connected to a university where the internship is part of your education plan. The position is unpaid and therefore it is important to us that you are receiving funds from a third party (SU/CSN/Erasmus Stipendium or another source of student support). 

Passionate: Have a strong passion when it comes to the end goal of improving the world for children, youth and are interested in working in a remote and international, pragmatic, business-savvy and result-driven team. 

Brave: As a person, you are brave, thorough, and have strong interpersonal and communication skills. You don’t hesitate to take initiative, are proactive, and enjoy having varied tasks and projects. You don't hesitate to ask questions, learn, be curious and would rather fail than do nothing.

Smart: You care about the quality of your work and you have an entrepreneurial problem-solving go-getter mindset. Knowledge within the development of IT tools and graphic design is preferable. 

Competencies and skills we are looking for: Good proficiency in English is required – since it is the language we use for most of our internal communication.
