Internship - Fall 2018
We are currently looking for at least two interns for the fall semester 2018. Candidates should have obtained or started a Master’s Degree in social sciences, economics, business administration, public administration, development studies, rural development, natural resources management or another related field. They should also be enrolled in an internship course at university level or through Arbetsförmedlingen.
Through an internship at FCG Sweden you will gain insights into how international development works in practice. You will have a chance to work on a broad range of subjects, from improving public service delivery to civil society development, private sector development, natural resource management and programme evaluations. You will see how a private sector actor works in international development, gain insights into many of the leading bilateral and multilateral organisations and be given plenty of responsibility and opportunities to learn and develop your skills and yourself.
Interns will be primarily allocated to one of our business areas – Public Sector Development, Civil Society, Natural Resource Management and Evaluation – but will likely have the chance to work with multiple business areas during the internship. Much of the work will focus on developing our business opportunities. This will include carrying out regular market analysis and research and assist us in identifying and preparing project opportunities and tenders. The interns will need to contact partners and experts by email and telephone, assisting us in various stages of the tender processes and support the recruitment for projects, among other things.
Interest in and knowledge of development cooperation is a necessary precondition. Applicants must be fluent in English, while knowledge of Swedish and/or other languages is a merit. Solid competence in working with Microsoft Office and Excel is a must, and we always welcome applicants with other IT skills who can help develop our organisation. We offer a sound insight into the work of a consulting firm working with international development cooperation. Our working environment is dynamic and stimulating and our tasks usually require a high level of interaction between colleagues. We are looking for highly motivated, self-driven interns who are ready to take on varying tasks.
