Vacancy: Internship (paid) at MJ Hudson Spring - Amsterdam

What do we stand for

Our current economic system has brought unprecedented levels of welfare and prosperity. Yet it is clear to all of us that the ways we produce, consume and finance will have to change.

At MJ Hudson Spring, we believe that investors play an important role in this transition. First, to better understand the impacts of their investments on climate change, ecosystems, and society. Second, to challenge their investments to reduce these impacts, but also to capture the opportunities that the sustainability transition provides.

What we do

ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Governance, known in the financial world as the three central factors in measuring the sustainability and ethical impact of companies. ESG factors, though non-financial, can have a material impact on the long-term risk and financial performance of a company. Principally, companies that use ESG standards are more conscientious, less risky and are more likely to succeed in the long run.

Investors recognise the growing importance of this topic, and therefore work with us to measure the ESG performance of their investments. We therefore need to be able to tell what sustainability means for companies in a wide range of geographies and industries.

For a textile company it can be about labour conditions upstream in the value chain, sustainable materials, and clothing recycling; for a manufacturing company, it can be about energy consumption, carbon footprint and health and safety of employees; and for an e-commerce company it can be about data security, employee and customer satisfaction.

Together with the board of those companies, we develop a roadmap with actions that the companies can take to improve their sustainability performance. We discuss progress with those companies every year, so we can really steer and measure on impact.

What we look for

We are looking for an Intern / Analyst to join our Responsible Investing & ESG team based in the centre of  Amsterdam. We are looking for highly motivated students who are up for the challenge to become the absolute best. We seek top academic performers with strong analytical skills, as we expect a high level of performance. Affinity with sustainability and consulting is a great plus.

We look for candidates that can work 4-5 days per week, for a minimum period of 4 months (the longer the better). There is no fixed starting date. Other qualifications are listed below:

  • Good language skills with mastery of grammar and spelling in both Dutch and English
  • Good time management, organisational and communication skills
  • Good knowledge of PowerPoint and Excel
  • Good work ethos and eagerness to learn and develop
  • Great team member with entertaining talents

What we offer

  • Remuneration: EUR 13.50 / hour
  • Training: We will quickly get you up to speed. This involves an onboarding programme with trainings on hard skills such as PowerPoint and Excel, and trainings on financial markets, the rising role and importance of sustainability, and the tips and tricks within our work.
  • Responsibilities: Right from the start you will join one of our projects. We will treat you as a starting consultant, and working with talented colleagues at our Amsterdam office, you will embark on a steep learning curve, building up an exceptional consultancy skill set.
  • …and obviously all the fun stuff: Friday afternoon drinks, training weekends, Christmas parties, etc.

About MJ Hudson Spring

Our team consists of about 20 people from various academic backgrounds. We are located in the centre of Amsterdam. 

MJ Hudson Spring is formerly known as Spring Associates. In July 2019, MJ Hudson, a London-based asset management consultancy, acquired Spring Associates’ ESG services, which presented a unique opportunity for our company to grow. While remaining independent and operating from Amsterdam, our entire team has transitioned from Spring Associates to MJ Hudson Spring.

We have now embarked on an exciting journey of growth: gaining international ground, developing new products, and expanding our team – and we would very much like you to be part of that!

About the application procedure

Please express your interest by sending an application letter, your CV and relevant lists of grades (high school, bachelor and master) to: Recruiting.Spring@MJHudson.com.

If you come through our selection procedure, we will contact you to schedule two interviews. In these interviews we will discuss your CV, motivation, and conduct a small case interview to get a feeling for your analytical and problem-solving capabilities.
