We are looking for an intern who can join us during the Fall semester, starting in August or September. Deadline for your application is April 21st.
About In futurum
We are a strategic consultancy and change-making agency that operates in the cross-section between sustainability, justice, and diversity & inclusion. We primarily work with projects and players within culture, arts, retail, fashion, design, food and the built environment. We work with private companies, industry organizations and public institutions, do research projects and facilitate, moderate and participate in public conversations on the agendas we work on.
We are looking for interns who want to become part of our team. Our working environment is deeply important to us; we care for each other and for our workplace as a place where we feel home and have created a safe and relaxing physical space to work in. We always eat a good and healthy lunch, which we are all responsible for.
Your interests & academic profile
You can study both at a bachelor’s- or master’s level. Your interests and academic profile could be within communication, sociology, anthropology, gender studies, business studies, political science, or something similar – but most importantly, you’re deeply engaged in topics concerning the future of our planet and the diverse people and cultures that inhabit it. You want to be part of a small team driven by feminist, queer, anti-racist and norm-critical practices where we challenge conventions of capitalism and consumption and address the need for holistic, sustainable change in our work with businesses, organizations, cultural institutions, and political actors.
Ideally, we’d like an intern that can contribute to our work within one or two of these key areas – please specify which area(s) suits your profile in your application:
- Research: You’re a solid detective that wants to contribute to a broad range of projects by doing interdisciplinary and cross-sectional research that can inform our consultancy, our strategic development for clients and solidify many of our new areas of interest.
- DEI: You want to contribute to our consultancy on topics centered around Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and be part of the ongoing development of our methodology, our outreach and our external communication on these topics. We expect you to know what intersectionality means – then we will teach you how to turn that into engaging work with clients.
- Environmental Justice: Global inequality is a key focus area across our work. We’re working on a range of projects focused on environmental justice, specifically in a European context. Here, an understanding of (geo)political structures and institutions, of colonial and political history or of global development systems might be handy.
- Circular economy & sustainability: You’re deeply engaged in the circular transition and want to contribute to projects and partnerships where we work closely with companies and organizations to drive circular and sustainable perspectives in developing business models, products, life cycles, and more.
- Communication: You want to help us communicate our projects, our vision and do think-pieces, columns, press work and more to position and push our small company on a bigger scale. Here, your writing skills are key to your success.
As we are a small team you will be working closely together with all four of us, Frederik, Moussa, Marie and Jessica. You will get close to daily operations and become a natural part of our daily life. You will be working on tasks that fit your interest and profile and will get the opportunity to work on one or more projects, and some more on a day-to-day basis. You will have your own desk and share office space with our colleague, Marie.
As you will be working with both Danish and English-speaking clients, the ability to communicate professionally in both languages is a must. Please note that our office is located on the first floor of an old building without an elevator. The internship must be at least four months and is unpaid. Therefore, it must be a part of your education, so that you will receive ECTS-points.
Kindly note that applications will be reviewed continuously, and interviews conducted on an ongoing basis.
We look forward to hearing from you.
