New PR & Comms intern at Minc

Minc helps early stage companies grow to a point where they’re ready to take on the world. We believe tech and innovation is where it’s at, and we’re currently on a mission to attract the world’s best entrepreneurs and investors to Minc in Malmö.

We’re already making progress. Previously this year The Nordic Web revealed that Malmö has attracted more venture capital than any other non-capital city in the Nordics, and heavyweights such as Apple has acquired companies that developed here at Minc.

But the trouble is, not everyone knows about the great things we get up to here at Minc. We need someone to help us spread the word. We want international entrepreneurs, investors and the tech community at large to know that Malmö is the best place in the world to come set up your next venture.

Can you help?

We're looking for someone super confident with great writing skills to join us. You'll be devising strategies and putting them into practice straight away - no photocopying, coffee-making or filing here.

Your tasks will include:
- Putting together PR materials
- Developing our case study programme
- Manning our social media channels
- Organising high profile events

You don't need to have done all of these things before, the only thing you do need is excellent writing skills and bags of confidence. And if you have genuine enthusiasm for Malmö’s startup scene - all the better. This will be decent work experience with a friendly team and a mentor that will take care of you.

Required skills:

  • Initiative and problem-solving - You turn to Google before your supervisor and like finding solutions to problems.

  • Time management - You’ll be working against deadlines, so being able to manage your time is important.

  • Excellent communication - Not only are you a confident communicator, you also know how to get your point across clearly and concisely.

  • Driven - You’re a driven individual with a willingness to learn and grow. Someone who has fire in their belly. You have the ability to take constructive criticism and apply it positively in a self-motivated way.

  • A team player - We're a close-knit, friendly team. Enthusiasm and a positive attitude goes down well.

  • A great writer - There's a lot of writing in this job. Excellent written English and Swedish is a must.

  • Organised - Things move quickly here. We need someone who can keep tabs on their workload and hit deadlines.
     

What You'll Get

  • Training and mentoring from experts in their fields.

  • The opportunity to run your own projects.

  • The chance to make a real impact in how we run our PR operations - we want to learn from you, too.

  • And of course, as much coffee as you can drink, invites to an endless number of AWs, and Team Breakfast every Thursdays!

The internship starts in January 2017 and will last for at least 12 weeks - though we’d love it if you could stay on a bit longer. The internship is unpaid and we reckon it’s probably part of your degree in PR and/or marketing.

Reckon you’re the one? Send your CV and cover letter to sandy@minc.se before 24 October, adressing the cover letter to Sandy Errestad. First round telephone interviews will be conducted between 31 October - 4 November. Second round interviews - in person or on Skype depending on the candidate's needs - will be held between 7-11 November.

Do you have any questions about the role? Ping sandy@minc.se.
