Do you want to become an expert in corporate sustainability?
Are you interested in business and human rights?
We are looking for two student interns for two six-month internships starting approx. August 1, 2023.
As an intern in GLOBAL CSR, you will be part of our consultancy and take part in daily activities. You will be working on several projects, getting a solid insight into ESG/CSR, with leading experts on social sustainability, i.e., human rights. The internship will provide you with extensive knowledge and practical implementation skills on the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises (OECD).

We work in an open office, where you will be in close contact with other consultants, providing you with opportunities to work with and learn from leading experts in the field. The position is 37 hours a week and is unpaid. Gratuities are possible according to performance. GLOBAL CSR provides lunch, tea/coffee, fruit and snacks during the day. The internship is to be conducted from GLOBAL CSR’s office located at Skalbakken, 8A, 2720 Vanløse, Copenhagen, but we are flexible towards homework.
Your tasks may include (but are not limited to):
- Prepare draft assessments in support of companies’ due diligence processes.
