The purpose of the internship is to learn and develop practical skills and gain a first-hand understanding of how a professional workplace operates. For us, interns ensure that we continue to learn and benefit from new ideas.
We are looking for a Netherlands-based intern to join our Marketing, Communications and Communities (MCC) team for a 6-month paid internship (full-time or part-time) starting mid-July 2021. Goodwell is preparing for its next Annual Gathering scheduled for October. The Goodwell Impact Gathering is where we bring together our teams from across Africa, portfolio company CEO’s and investors. We are looking for an intern to support the preparation and execution of this important event. You will be working closely with the MCC and Investor Relations teams, gaining a deeper understanding of event brand development, programming creation and marketing. Outside of the event, you will have a strong supporting role in expanding and maintaining our marketing channels on a day-to-day basis, engaging with teams across the organisation. Your time at Goodwell will help you acquire further marketing skills and exposure to various communications strategies. In addition, it is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of venture capital and private equity investments, impact investing, economic development, and social entrepreneurship in Africa. Ultimately, you will gain broad experience in marketing and should be prepared to enter any fast-paced work environment.
