Human-driven climate change is warming the Arctic almost three times as fast as the rest of the world. We are a small team working with Arctic wildlife, ecosystems, the impacts of climate change and the institutions that work in this exciting region. And we turn 30 years old next year!
You will work side by side with our Senior Communications Manager and Communications Specialist, supporting with communications outputs and materials.
These outputs include for example: writing news stories about our work and Arctic issues, updating and working to improve our website, social media posts and analysis (Twitter and Instagram), and planning events. Our 30th anniversary will be celebrated with a flurry of activity!
The Senior Communications Manager will have the overall responsibility for the intern mentoring, but you will work closely with the entire team.
We are ideally looking for a person who has a Communications or Journalist education with a broad knowledge of communication channels and projects. It is a plus if you have interest and experience with conservation and climate issues.
You have a natural ability to coordinate and drive tasks forward and transform sometimes complex information into messages for a broader public audience.
You are a native or near-native English speaker. Swedish language skills are considered a plus, as we work and mingle with our Swedish colleagues at WWF Sweden, sitting in the beautiful Ulriksdal Palace in Solna.
The internship is for the spring semester 2022, starting late January (or early Feb) and continuing until early June. We do not provide salary or compensation and you will need to be insured through your university. A case study or other demonstration of communications skills might be required as a part of the recruitment.
