Role description

We are looking for an intern who will support our Shelter Program consultants and program managers. Shelter is a unique partnership created in 2010 through a collaboration between Arcadis, and UN-Habitat, a United Nations agency focusing on housing and urban development. The goal of the Shelter Program is to help resolve contemporary urban challenges and improve quality of life in cities around the world. The Shelter Program is part of Arcadis’ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program and all support to UN-Habitat is pro-bono.

Currently, more than half of the global population lives in cities, and predictions are urbanization will increase to 70% by 2050. Rapidly growing cities pose a wide range of problems to people, nature, and the built environment, resulting in almost a billion people in urban areas lacking safe and sustainable housing.

Through Shelter, Arcadis aims to resolve these issues through the provision of industry-leading technical expertise and the sharing of knowledge and capacity-building skills in urban areas where it is needed the most, all on a pro-bono basis. As of now, more than 130 Shelter missions have been carried out around the world, reaching from Ghana to the Philippines.

As an intern, you will support your colleagues in running the program. Examples of tasks you will carry out may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Supporting the preparation and monitoring of missions (scope, activities, impacts)
  • Carrying out a diversity of tasks related to marketing and communications
  • Supporting the conceptualization of mission impact measurement
  • Assisting the preparation of the 2023 Shelter Academy
  • Supporting the organization and hosting of internal workshops
  • Supporting the organization of external Urban Thinkers Campus events
  • Any other project management related activities

Qualifications & Experience

For this vacancy, we are looking for a pro-active, creative, out-of-the-box thinker who:

  • Is following a (preferably interdisciplinary) master’s program (MSc or MA) focusing on water, environment, resilience, urban planning, governance, international development, change management, sustainability / CSR, (landscape)architecture or related;
  • Has a go-getter attitude and great organizational skills;
  • Is culturally sensitive and flexible;
  • Has ability to perform activities independently and eager to learn new capabilities;
  • Has a good command of English for both communication and reporting;
  • Has an average command of Dutch for understanding and speaking;
  • Preferably possesses strong planning, prioritization of activities and project management skills;
  • Preferably has experience in design/visualisations, infographics and powerpoint;
