Internship Accenture Innovation Awards – The Central Team – Assistant Event Manager

What is the Accenture Innovation Awards?
The Accenture Innovation Awards is a year-round program with multiple events that aims to connect all innovators and to drive innovation together. This year-round program will ultimately culminate in the Innovation Summit on November 2nd, 2018. The Innovation Awards team consists of a Central Team and the Theme Interns. The Central Team interns are responsible for program management, event management, marketing and communication, client value and partnerships. The Theme Interns are responsible for defining theme strategy and executing the theme specific tasks, such as theme innovation scouting and providing guidance during the theme judging process. Together you will work towards one goal: the biggest innovation program in the Netherlands. Within the whole Innovation Awards team, you are given the freedom to pursue diverse projects.
Why would you want to start your AIA18 journey as Assistant Event Manager within the Central Team?
Within the central team you, together with senior consultants, will work on the overall organization of the Accenture Innovation Awards.

In addition to the main ‘Innovation Summit’, you will also organize smaller events associated with the Innovation Awards program. This includes innovation exchanges, Scale Up Academies, jury meetings, kickoff events etc.

During your internship, you will develop and gain the abilities needed to fulfill the position of assistant event manager. Being in contact with different stakeholders will be key, and you will be able to influence the communication and information processes. Your job responsibilities will vary from event- and project planning to concept development, and tasks such as production preparations, programming and leading a team will be a central aspect of the internship. Also, you will be fully responsible for coordinating parts of the events.

Are you looking for a challenging event management internship, do you have a ‘hands-on mentality’, and are you flexible, stress-resistant and self-reliant? But most importantly, are you excited to play a key role in the organization of the yearly Accenture Innovation Summit and its many side events? Then we are looking for you!
