Global Sustainability Analyst Spring 2023

Salary DKK 3,000 - DKK 3,000

We are looking for talented analysts for Sustainia's advisory team. Start January or February 2023. As an intern (Analyst) at Sustainia, you will be part of an ambitious workplace that specialises in strategic consulting and fact-based storytelling for sustainable organisations. We work for private and public organisations with global ambition.

Analysis and consulting ... or marketing and communication:

We focus on ESG, systemic behaviour, digitalisation, and creative communications. Every day we distill complexity and solve problems for clients through analysis and strategic communication. You will participate in various projects that often involve research into sustainable solutions and trends, writing assignments for our publications and online platform, project scoping, idea generation and a variety of ad hoc assignments. The assignments are typically a mix of research and communication.

About you:

The internship is open to students who are currently enrolled in a master's degree - or recent graduates with similar experience. Your academic background must be based on sustainability, and you must have strong competencies in research, written production and communication. We currently have employees with a background from Berkeley, Oxford, Harvard, Sciences Po, Copenhagen Business School, University of Copenhagen, Aarhus University, and others.

We are interested in people who are independent, possess the wit and mind and the ability to take initiative and deliver results. You also need to be flexible and open to new challenges.

As we work with a mix of international customers, you must master the English language verbally and in writing - if you're fluent in Danish or Norwegian, that is a plus.

Start and scholarship:

With us, both remote and a place in the office in Copenhagen is an option, so please state your preference. We would like you to start in January or February, and we are open for internships lasting 4 to 6 months and four to five days a week. We provide a scholarship of DKK 3,000 monthly (b-income) and if you are with us five days a week, you can take a monthly day off. Work is flexible though, and we are prepared to offer time off in peak times on an individual basis.

After you apply:

We often get quite many applications, but read them all, so it may take some time before we return. If we see a match, we will invite you to a written research and writing assignment (in English), followed by an interview before we make a final selection and return with an offer.

We typically have several analysts, and have parallel recruitment processes, so feel free to apply immediately.

Tips for your application:

Instead of spending energy on telling that you are a fan of sustainability, rather spend more space emphasising:

  1. what types of tasks you would love to work on (visit our site for inspiration on our work),

  2. whether you have had experience with ESG, SDG, GRI and / or reporting,

  3. whether you have particularly good knowledge of one or more industries (e.g. finance, food, mobility, construction etc.),

  4. whether you have experience with digital tools (e.g. for project management or marketing),

  5. what parts of your LinkedIn profile you are most proud of.


We are looking forward to hearing from you.
