Are you our new policy intern?

Published November 9, 2017

EAT Foundation is a small organization with an outsized impact that is playing a central role in placing food, health and sustainability on the international agenda. We’re growing rapidly and we’re now looking for an intern to support our action-focused programs run jointly with partners ranging from policymakers to chefs, business leaders, scientists and the United Nations.

As a policy intern, you will be an integral part of the EAT policy team, which translates scientific knowledge to action through working with policymakers at local, national and international levels on methods to advance integrated food systems policies; co-ordinates impactful programmes with chefs, cities and UN organisations; and informs EAT event content and strategy.

Your responsibilities will be:
1. Help draft EAT policy and programme related materials, including scoping work, desk research and content development.
2. Support the broader EAT team with preparation of materials and logistics for the high-level EAT Stockholm Food Forum and other international engagements.

Who are we looking for?
* You have completed, or are currently enrolled in, a Masters degree in a relevant field (international development, public health, environment sustainability, public policy etc.).
* You possess some experience in a relevant field, and have an understanding of the food, health and sustainability nexus (EAT’s core areas).
* You have the energy and adaptability to work with a dynamic international team on a range of different tasks.
* You are organised and have strong time-management skills.
* You are fluent in English.
