The Bretton Woods Committee is the preeminent non-profit organization dedicated to effective international economic and financial cooperation. 

Towards this end, we demonstrate the value of multilateralism and improve the performance of the international financial institutions (IFIs) through public dialogue, advocacy and policy analysis.   

Our mission is supported by: 

  • A diverse, global membership of leaders from business, finance, government and academia who are an unparalleled source of ideas and expertise. 
  • We are an independent, non-partisan advocate for the key multilateral institutions. We help inform public officials that global economic prosperity is best served through effective multilateralism. 
  • We convene flagship conferences on the most critical economic and financial topics. These serve as important fora for dialogue and debate between BWC members, senior policymakers, multilateral officials, private sector leaders and prominent academics.  
  • Working groups that organize roundtables, seminars, conferences, and other events to analyze and make policy recommendations on emerging issues impacting the future of finance, trade and global development. 
  • Special projects that produce reports and publications with unbiased analysis and policy prescriptions on ways in which the multilateral system – and the institutions that comprise it – can be strengthened and made more effective. 

The Committee seeks the help of an intern (20-30 hours per week) for the summer of 2021. The internship term will commence mid-May and will conclude mid-August (dates are flexible, and preference will be given to those willing to stay through the Fall semester). The intern will help to support the Committee’s operations, fundraising, and membership activities. Individuals who wish to gain a wide range of hands-on experience and learn about the inner workings of a small non-profit and the individuals and organizations shaping the future of the international financial institutions are encouraged to apply. Virtual accommodations will be made contingent on the status of COVID-19. The internship pays a $500 stipend for each term completed successfully. 

Responsibilities may include: 

  • Support the Committee's membership recruitment strategy by researching high-level leaders in the fields of international finance, trade, and development and by assisting with the membership invitation of prospective candidates through a yearly recruitment drive.  
  • Support the Committee’s yearly fundraising cycle by reviewing materials and documents and by assisting with the compilation and mailing of fundraising materials.  
  • Assist in the execution of Committee programs and events by providing both operational and logistical support both in the lead up to events and day-of.  
  • Support the Committee’s communications by researching current member information and by periodically engaging with members via e-mail and telephone to update contact information as deemed necessary by the Operations Associate.  
  • Support the Committee’s operational infrastructure by assisting in projects that increase operational efficiency regarding the Committee’s website, CRM database, and photo and video storage, and others as assigned. 
  • Support daily administrative tasks of the office including data entry, mailings, processing contribution acknowledgment letters, etc.  
  • Other duties as assigned. 

Qualifications: 

The successful candidate will be an undergraduate senior, recent graduate, or graduate student in a field related to international business, business administration/management, business development, finance, economics, international development/affairs, political science, conflict analysis, or a related field who has: 

  • A healthy awareness of companies, government actors, international financial institutions, and other organizations involved in global finance, trade and development activities. 
  • Previous office experience. 
  • A strong attention to detail and ability to stay organized with minimal oversight. 
  • A self-driven nature and demonstrated ability to multi-task with minimal supervision.
