You're the brains behind our work.
Ever considered writing compelling content for internal and external audiences? Want to get hands-on managing exciting events? How about finding innovative ways to engage employees? Or working with our community partners?
If you are creative, a storyteller, you get a thrill from multitasking, love working in an international environment, want to take initiative and get hands-on experience…then this internship at Citi in Paris might be just the learning experience you are looking for.

You’re ready to bring your knowledge from the classroom to the boardroom, and Citi wants to help you get there. Whether it’s honing your skills or building your network, we know that success can’t come without growth. Our programs equip you with the knowledge and training you need to play a valuable role on your team, and establish a long-term career here. At Citi, we value internal mobility, and career growth is not a question of if, but when.

Your time here will look something like this...
You will contribute to the daily operations of the Global Public Affairs (GPA) department for the countries of France, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. You will get hands on experience working on:

* Drafting internal and external communication material, including press releases for the media, communication material targeting employees and customers, Powerpoint presentations, speeches or materials for Citi’s global portals and publications
* Management of corporate websites and social media
* Creating country fact sheets

Community Programs and Volunteer Activities

* Organizing the Citi Journalistic Excellence Award, which encourages and recognizes outstanding business and finance reporting
* Engaging with the Citi Alumni Network

We provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to succeed.
We’re committed to teaching you the ropes. The 6-month internship program starts in January 2023 and begins with an introduction to Citi and the Public Affairs team. You will then join a team where you will gain a real-hands on experience by working on a number of live projects.

• You have a strong academic background in communications/marketing.
• You are available to start in January 2023.
• You are fluent in English both written and oral (which will be your working language).

* You are able to work under pressure and to handle multiple tasks.
* You have a good work attitude.
* You are hands-on and pro-active.
* You are eager to learn.
* You have advanced skills in PowerPoint, Excel and Word.
* A good level in French is recommended and additional languages beneficial but not essential.
