INTERNSHIP EVENTS COMMUNICATION – 100%

IMMEDIATE OR UPON AGREEMENT / 12 MONTHS CONTRACT IN ITTIGEN NEAR BERNE, SWITZERLAND
WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR
 
Have you just finished (or are in your final year of) your university studies and are looking for your first opportunity to apply your skills in a unique international organisation?     Are you fluent in English (written and spoken)? Are you a well organised and pragmatic person with excellent organisational and communication skills who can take the initiative and add value to a team?  
 
If the answers to these questions are ‘yes’, then we want to hear from you.
 
All of our interns are given responsibility and the opportunity to make an impact from day one.  We are a close knit team and we look for university graduates who are proactive, love taking ownership of tasks and who thrive on collaboration in a supportive workplace.   
 
The WFSGI team is growing and we are ready to give you the right start for your career.
 
YOUR INTERNSHIP
 
The intern’s tasks will be to support the WFSGI Events Manager in all areas. The main focus will be delivering, with the support of the Events Manager, the communications for the international conferences we own and manage such as, the World Manufacturers Forum, the World Cycling Forum, the World Sports Forum and for our internal industry meetings including our twice yearly Annual Meetings, our General Assembly and Committee meetings and adhoc other events.  Your specific responsibilities will include the promotion, support and preparations of our events and meetings using all available communications tools (social media, website, direct mailing, press information, event tools, etc.).    
 
With the wide variety of work carried out by the WFSGI, you will from time to time be asked (or have the opportunity) to involve yourself in other areas of our business.  This will allow you to develop a broader understanding of the WFSGI and a wider range of skills.  The nature of our role means that all WFSGI team members share a common attribute which is the willingness to collaborate, ‘get stuck in’ and help one another to ensure we deliver the best service possible for our members.  We expect our intern to do the same.
 
We are looking for an intern who grasps these opportunities with both hands and who develops skills during the year that makes them an essential part of the WFSGI team.  In return, the internship will give you invaluable, real-world experience and the opportunity to engage with and learn from industry leaders.
