The Host Company
There is a significant opportunity to join a step out innovation and venture team within a major corporation, operating in the field of automotive and industrial lubricants.
The innoVentures team is looking for 12 interns, who will be part of an innovative team, which has been running successfully for over three years building up a number of emerging businesses as well as an investment portfolio covering automotive and industrial sectors. The focus of the team is on the long term (5-10 years), looking beyond the current products and with the aim of future proofing the core business versus long-term trends and potential market disruptions.
This opportunity will be attractive to students who wish to apply their specific skills and expertise in a progressive and challenging environment and with the ability to think broadly and deeply about the world; specifically the rapidly emerging technologies and the social and environmental changes that underpin many of the wider global market disruptions in evidence today. The team would be expected to find out: What do users value and engage with? How do they react to various service related offers?
The host company is looking for a strong candidate with entrepreneurial drive, who will help the team planning and coordinating the operations to bring innoVentures projects to “the next level”. The candidate will direct the activities of their team, with the main aim of developing specific goals and plans to prioritize, organize, and accomplish the work.
Fluent in written and spoken English (C1 min).
Along with other team members, the intern would be expected to:
- Investigate the feasibility of new business ideas generated by current innoVentures members.
- Direct administrative activities on a monthly/weekly/daily basis.
- Evaluating Information to determine compliance with standards - Using relevant information and individual judgment to determine whether the progresses comply with the company’s regulations, standards and future goals.
- Developing objectives and strategies - Establishing long-range objectives and specifying the strategies and actions to achieve them.
- Developing and building the team - Encouraging and building mutual trust, respect, and cooperation among team members.
