We are looking to recruit a full-time intern for at least 6 months starting in September 2020. Internship should be sponsored by the intern’s university (stage conventionné).
We are looking for a motivated individual who is interested in working as a consultant for the public sector. The person must preferably be finishing a master’s level degree in a related field (e.g. public policy, economics, engineering). The candidate must be interested in providing strategic consultancy services to the public sector at the local, national, European and international level; particularly within the fields of science, technology and innovation; green growth; regional development and cohesion policy; international development. The candidate is expected to be fluent in French and English. Fluency of a third language such as Spanish would be considered an asset.
No previous professional experience is required
The role of the intern is to provide cross-cutting support to our team of consultants in the delivery of our projects (e.g. policy evaluations, strategic studies, technical assistance), as well as in our business development efforts (e.g. proposal development). Our clients include French regional councils and ESIF managing authorities, national ministries, the European Commission and international donor organisations. Day-to-day tasks include conducting desk research, analysis of large databases, developing background material, drafting specific sections of deliverables, conducting interviews, contributing to internal knowledge management activities and monitoring market opportunities. Interns work with several project managers, but are appointed a direct supervisor within the team.
