Sustainable Energy Internship
GreenMax Capital Advisors is soliciting applications for our Winter/Spring 2017 Internship Program located in our Park Slope, Brooklyn office. Interns may also be placed internationally in one of our Nairobi, Santiago, or Warsaw office locations.
GreenMax is one of the leading international policy and financial advisory firms focused entirely on the clean energy sector. We advise governments, international financial institutions, investors and project developers on strategies to increase implementation of renewable energy and energy efficiency. We have completed assignments in more than 80 countries around the world. Today our main geographic focus is on emerging markets in Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe and Turkey.
Interns at GreenMax work on substantive research, writing and/or quantitative analysis tasks, including proposal development and grant preparation for renewable energy projects, market assessments of renewable energy potential in various countries in our target regions and information memoranda for investment and debt financing solicitations. Some of our interns have been invited to permanent positions with us and many others have used their experience at GreenMax to leverage interesting positions elsewhere in the sustainable energy field.
For our Winter/Spring program this year, we are seeking interns with international backgrounds (fluency in one or more of the following: Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian/Ukrainian and Turkish). Excellent written and verbal proficiency in English is also required. Of special interest will be interns native to Latin America, Sub Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe or Turkey, with good understanding of their home country’s political and economic environment. We especially encourage current students or recent graduates from university programs in sustainability, renewable energy, energy and environmental policy and finance to apply.
Our undergraduate or graduate school interns are expected to work a 12-week cycle according to their school’s academic calendar. Recent graduates of master’s programs in the aforementioned fields are asked to commit to 3-month internships. While we encourage and prefer full-time commitments, part-time arrangements may also be accepted for highly qualified candidates to accommodate school schedules. We always cooperate with universities to ensure academic credit. The internship is unpaid for currently matriculating students. Recent master’s program graduates of exceptional quality and prior work experience abroad in sustainable energy, infrastructure or investment banking may be eligible for a stipend during their internship.
Please submit a cover letter, your CV and a brief writing sample (e.g. an article or the executive summary of a research report) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Interviews will be scheduled on a rolling basis in person or via Skype, with the internship expected to commence in early February. The deadline for applications is Friday January 27, 2017.
