Consulting Intern, Nordic Office

About Metabolic

Metabolic’s overarching mission is to transition the global economy to a fundamentally sustainable state. We advise governments, businesses, and NGOs on how to adapt to a fast-changing global context, while creating disruptive solutions that can dramatically shift how the economy functions.

We use data science and systems thinking to help organisations to transition to more circular economic models. We believe that bold visions must go hand-in-hand with data-driven approaches in order to create real change.

During your internship, you will work with our consulting team on 2-3 projects for a minimum of 5 months. You will conduct research, collect data, help map and analyze problems, craft interventions to key challenges and much more.

With the position, you will join a fast-growing organization and a tight-knit community of passionate and intelligent colleagues that all share an ambition for catalyzing a sustainable future.
