Our Summer internships last for six weeks between June and August in Oslo or London. The internship gives current students an opportunity to gain work experience within one of the world’s largest and most progressive international investment funds.
Just as we invest for the long term, we take a long-term perspective when it comes to our staff. Our internship can be the start of your career journey at the fund.
As an intern you get a unique opportunity to contribute to the fund early on and to learn from top professionals. Candidates with high performance in the programme may also be offered a fast track to our two-year rotational Talent programme.
During the internship you will receive a full introduction to the organisation. You will meet senior managers and employees from across the organisation and our offices. You will get a variety of development opportunities including skills-based boot camps, team projects and a lunchtime lecture series from some of our top employees. There will also be social events and team activities.
A dedicated manager will set your day-to-day tasks and support you with your projects. At the end of the six weeks you will be given the opportunity to present your work to your team and senior managers.
We are looking for talented people from a range of backgrounds, with different mindsets and who are comfortable in taking risks. We strive to have an environment where we do not fear failure, as failure helps us learn and improve. We look for and celebrate diversity – the more diverse we are, the more creative we can be and the better the results we can achieve.
This programme is for current students who have:
•Initiative, curiosity and a desire to learn
•A keen interest of the fund and a career here
•Understanding of the fund’s mission and mandate, its importance to the Norwegian people and how you can support this
•A strong team mindset
•A high degree of flexibility and an international mindset
•Resilience and ability to take risks
