Available Positions – Fall 2020

The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Philadelphia  is looking for two highly motivated interns for our Fall 2020 internship positions. The successful candidates will work closely with the Board of Directors to further enhance the mission and vision of the Chamber. They will continue building on the process and structure that our current interns are working on, creating an opportunity for our next interns to significantly impact the work of the Chamber. 

In its current structure, the two interns are the only full-time staff, and while you will be guided in your daily work by the Board of Directors and the Executive Board, the successful candidates must be enthusiastic about working very independently, take initiatives, and plan and execute on projects and project plans. Responsibilities for the two roles include:

Finance and Business Development Manager

  • Day-to-day Accounting
  • Membership management & invoicing
  • Creating financial reports
  • Budgeting and managing Chamber events
  • Managing sponsorship opportunities
  • Other projects as they come up

Marketing and Sales Manager

  • Organizing Chamber events
  • Marketing Chamber events
  • Managing website and social media
  • Creating Chamber newsletters
  • Compiling content for SACC platforms
  • Other projects as they come up

Both roles require fluency in Swedish and English, as well as drive, proactively, and social skills. The finance role requires basic understanding of accounting principles and the marketing role demands some familiarity with WordPress,  the Adobe Creative Suite, Photoshop, InDesign, or similar products. Interns should have completed at least one year of studies at the BSc or MSc level. 

SACC-USA is one of few sponsors that is able to assist Swedish students or recent graduates with getting a visa for an American internship at no cost, and this internship is a great way for candidates to get invaluable international experience. It also provides a platform for personal and professional growth, and for networking with Swedish-American individuals and businesses.

The internship location is Philadelphia, PA, USA and the length of the internship is 6 months, with some room for flexibility. The application deadline is May 17th, 2020, but positions will be filled as soon as the right candidates are found. As with most SACC internships, this is an unpaid position. If the internship is part of your studies, you could be eligible for a student loan form CSN.

Send your CV and cover letter in English, including which role you are interested in, to info@sacc-philadelphia.org as soon as possible! We are going through applications during the ongoing recruitment process.

A Note on COVID-19: In light of the shelter-at-home recommendations from the U.S. government, this internship may start virtually with our interns working from home. Once the travel ban is lifted, the interns will be able to join us in Philadelphia.
