Talent Strategy Intern

Published 29 days ago

Since our founding in 2015, Bridges for Enterprise (BfE) has grown in size from a small student club at the University of Cambridge to a global non-profit with 200+ active members around the world. While we have grown in size, we still face difficulties with talent retention, performance and engagement, and sustainable succession within BfE chapters. Some of this is due to our all-volunteer nature, yet there are certainly improvements that can be made in a number of areas that touch upon human resources (HR) and organisational management. Until now, addressing these challenges has been the job of the BfE global leadership team. Going forward, however, we are hoping to recruit someone with a background or interest in organisational strategy and HR to suggest ways to improve some of these underlying weaknesses in our organisational design.

This internship will work closely with the top leadership of BfE. Through various 1:1 and group sessions, this intern will collect detailed feedback from past and present chapter leadership and perform analysis to understand each chapter’s struggles and success in recruitment and retention. Deliverables at the end of the internship will be a presentation of findings + some initial suggestions that each chapter, as well as our global team, can use.

We are looking for students passionate about going into strategy consulting, the HR field, or something related to management. If you have a background or interest in social impact and non-profits, and want to make a tangible difference while in university, then this is a great opportunity for you. This internship is most suitable for first and second year college students who can dedicate 15-20 hours per week to this internship. Our schedule is highly flexible and we can work with you to tailor this internship accordingly. Human resources within BfE is incredibly important; pending successful completion of this internship, there may be opportunities to join the BfE global management team afterwards.

Requirements

  • Flexible, driven and ability to think on your feet
  • Fast and independent learner who can communicate easily
  • Enthusiasm or interest in conducting strategy, consulting or HR-related work for a global impact-focused non-profit
  • Some prior experience in HR-related tasks is important for this position, although we’re willing to work with you if you only have academic experience
  • Enthusiasm and commitment to BfE’s cause
  • Qualities of integrity, credibility and a passion for building a more prosperous and sustainable future through social entrepreneurship
  • Desire to bring diverse perspectives, energy, knowledge and skills to the role

Perks

  • Network with a growing community of diverse, talented and passionate BfE members across the world
  • Avoid the monotony of university life by doing something meaningful and volunteering with your precious free time
  • Advance your strategy, consulting and/or HR skills with a tangible work output to talk about during future interviews
  • Broaden your portfolio while knowing that your project will have a direct tangible impact on real-life businesses
  • As part of BfE’s internship programme, you will be joined with interns from non-technical and technical disciplines and have the opportunity to attend talks and workshops by different divisions to find out about our work. You will receive a formal reference letter at the end of your internship
