Academic Intern at Global People Transitions GmbH

We offer six months of academic internship at Global People Transitions GmbH. As an intern, you would have the opportunity to work within a small global, virtual team. We need academic support to assert the scientific background behind our coaching methodology and to manage projects that require academic research skills and presentation preparation skills. The internship can be combined with a thesis or university project.

As part of your tasks and responsibilities, you will assist the Managing Director and team with diverse tasks which include:

  • Quality assurance of our programs.
  • Research academic background for presentations and lectures in IHRM, Global Mobility, and Intercultural Communication.
  • Update presentations to a level where they can be easily commented and edited by the Managing Director.
  • Support book writing with references, proposals, editing, and additional input.
  • Support with the organisation of workshops, flipchart documentation, and participant profiles.
  • Support with organizing the RockMeRetreats. You will be able to join for free.
  • Virtual assistance and small, urgent tasks based on language capabilities and needs such as booking travel, digitizing and tagging documentation.
