A day in the life of a Client Service Intern

As an intern in the Client Service team, you’ll be the link between our clients and the expert knowledge they seek. Throughout your workday, you’ll work on multiple projects from investors, strategists and dealmakers at top-tier client organizations seeking expert insights to inform their decision-making. This is a communications-intense frontline role requiring you to multitask across parallel workstreams. 


Your responsibilities will include:

  • Recruiting experts: you will spend a significant part of your day speaking on the phone with experts who are uniquely relevant matches for your clients’ projects, often under tight deadlines. 
  • Understanding the project and market context and the legal and regulatory environment in which your clients and experts operate. 
  • Taking ownership of every aspect of your projects, from initiating and managing client-expert communications to meticulously scheduling calls to ensure seamless collaboration between them.


Ensuring success for our Client Service Interns means: 

  1. Giving you an introduction to the business world without being pigeonholed into any one industry or profession.
  2. Helping you develop transferable commercial and client management skills spanning professional communications, negotiation, persuasion, project and time management.
  3. Providing you with a mentor, dedicated time with senior leadership, and the opportunity to deliver a business-related project to our co-founder and Region Head. 
  4. Opportunity to receive a full-time employment offer to return post-graduation. Learn more about our commercial career paths here.
  5. A unique training curriculum and intense on-the-job coaching, helping you develop highly transferable commercial and managerial skills.
  6. An inspiring, high-energy, merit-based environment with ambitious peers.
