Tandemic is looking for Innovation & Training Interns

to support the development of high-impact projects. There’s no coffee delivery or photocopying here (really, paper?). There is also no role as a bystander. You will come in and immediately be part of the team. We’ll be asking you to help deliver on important projects, solve problems, manage project timelines, and take part in external meetings. The specific project(s) you’ll work on will be based on your own growth interests and the needs of our projects. Hit the ground running (and fast) will be the best way to describe the Tandemic experience. Each week is different than the last. 

Once you’re here, you might:

Work closely with the team during the conceptualising, planning, implementation, and monitoring phases of a project

Plan out projects, including detailed tasks and timelines

Manage work within a team of people to deliver our work in a coordinated way and according to timeline

Conduct research on social initiatives and find potential partners

Liaise with clients and partners to keep them updated on our progress and troubleshoot challenges

Intern Requirements:

Deeply committed to social change

Demonstrated interest in Design Thinking (human-centred design)

Practical, hands-on, and committed to making sure the job gets done

Enthusiastic and quick at learning new things and always looking to improve themselves

Proficient in English, a bonus if you speak Bahasa Malaysia (not a requirement)
