Student Summer Interns
Charity Intelligence hires Summer Interns. Interns will be working with our Charity Intelligence analysts in undertaking ground-breaking research for Canada's most prominent database of charitable efficiency and effectiveness. Interns are trained in the Ci way and write charity reports. In the course of Ci's work, interns analyse charity annual reports, financial statements, filings and communicate with each charity. Intern positions are only in Toronto. The work is hard, the Ci team is fun, the results change lives.
Qualifications: Ci is looking for upper-year university students (3rd year +) with strong analytical and research skills who have curious and open minds and excel in critical thinking. Writing skills to clearly communicate complex issues to funders are essential. In addition, financial or accounting experience is required for at least 4 of our 5 available positions to work through charities’ audited financial statements to uncover how donations are actually spent.
This position is great summer experience for those looking to go into management consulting, investments, and equity research.
Timing: May 1 – Aug 31, 2016 (all intern positions are filled for 2016)
Each year Ci receives over 400 applications for 4-5 positions. Thank you for the incredible interest in charity research. We wish we had more capacity to hire more summer interns.
Charity Intelligence is continuously looking for volunteers to help us with various aspects of our work. Our small team does not have the capacity to train people; we need volunteers with prior experience.
Charity Research: We always have room for experienced professionals with CFAs, CAs, MBAs, etc.. Ci's volunteers have made significant contributions to understanding and analysing different charity sectors: John Grandy, a Ci volunteer, wrote Environmental Charities in Canada, Karen Greve Young with Greg Thomson wrote Cancer in Canada, Chris Murphy and Indi Gopinathan wrote the book of analysing food banks, Kate Ruff on social enterprises and measuring impact, to name a few.
Social Media and IT: Charity Intelligence would like its website and social media outreach to be more dynamic. If anyone has expertise in social media expertise (HootSuite, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook) and Joomla coding for a more dynamic website, and you can see how we need to improve, please contact us.
Fundraising: Ci would cherish anyone with a passion for fundraising, grant writing, and donor communications.
