About the role
Context’s three-month internship programme is designed to give successful applicants experience in a professional consultancy environment advising on sustainability strategy and communications.
Context interns get involved in all aspects of our work, including research, writing, client meetings, editing and brainstorming sessions. As a guide, this may include:
- Writing briefing documents and PowerPoint presentations
- Researching and writing for reports
- Proof reading and formatting
- Making notes at meetings
- Benchmarking and sector comparison exercises
- Participating in meetings, brainstorming sessions and events
- Writing blogs for our website

What we’re looking for
We look for interns who are excellent writers, and are enthusiastic, detail-orientated and creative. You will gain experience working across a variety of our client projects, so you must be highly organised and able to manage competing priorities. You will have an interest in business, a degree, and be able to demonstrate a commitment to pursuing a career in corporate sustainability consulting. This may come from your studies or some work experience you have recently done.
Strong verbal and written communication skills are essential as a large part of our work is writing and copy editing. You need to be confident working with data and a proficient user of Word, Excel and Powerpoint. You must also be prepared to help out with some administration tasks that are a part of running a business.
We don’t think anyone should work for free. We expect a lot from our interns and think it’s fair that they are properly rewarded. Interns are paid the London living wage.
Our friendly and buzzing office is in Soho, Central London.
