You will learn about the core processes that sit behind the face of consultancy, including but not limited to:

You will be involved in these processes on a daily basis and, depending on your skills and areas of interest, may be given responsibility for one of the above during your time with us. In addition, we have a number of discrete, ongoing, operational projects and you will be allocated one of these to plan and deliver. Examples of activities as part of this internship will include:

• event organisation including room bookings, sending out invites
• ordering of stationery and office supplies
• diary management, organising meetings, booking train tickets and hotels
• managing contacts
• preparing template documents
• greeting guests and answering general inquiries
• assisting with proposals
• general office duties, e.g. watering the plants, collecting the post, emptying the dishwasher
The core skills that you will build during your internship will include, but by no means be limited to:
• Communication with clients and colleagues
• Formatting and document presentation
• Time management
• Proof-reading
• Workload management
• Improved business English

A successful intern will:
• be enthusiastic about taking on new challenges, tasks and processes
• be happy doing a variety of tasks
• be used to working to tight deadlines
• be extremely organised and have excellent attention to detail
• be adaptable (as we are a growing organisation where priorities regularly change)
• be comfortable working with a diverse range of people
• be accustomed to having an independent workload
• demonstrate confidence with spoken and written English
• have excellent skills in MS Office (Word, Excel and PowerPoint)
• have a strong interest in (and ideally an understanding of) marketing, including social media
