We’re looking for a student or recent graduate in communications, a native speaker of Italian, for a semester-long internship in the centre of Rome. The ideal candidate will have solid graphic design and writing skills, and will be proficient in English (at least level B1 of the CEFR).

The candidate, who will be passionate about the issue of sustainability in public policy, will also have the following technical skills:

  • Adobe Suite: InDesign, Photoshop, Dreamweaver and Illustrator

The candidate will have the opportunity to work in a dynamic, international environment that is focusing more and more on Italy. The intern, who will work directly with the communications manager, should be able to work quickly and independently, with an eye for detail and a great respect for deadlines. The position will be a good fit for someone who is excited to learn new skills, take on new responsibilities, put forward ideas and broaden their professional network, as they will play a key role in implementing the organisation’s communications strategies, working on the site and posting on social media as early as their first day.
