INSIGHTS IS LOOKING FOR INTERNS TO DISRUPT GOVERNMENT!
Insights develops a digital consulting platform that enables leaders to make smarter decisions by consulting their crowds. Our staff consists of 12 amazing team members in Israel. Half are developing the platform and half are leading crowd-consulting projects for the government. We are now looking for the brightest minds to help us start disrupting the international markets (Europe, Russia, Latin America)
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
First of all, partners.
We want you to share the same values that we have as to how government should manage its decisions in the 21th century. It’s important to clarify: we are not focusing on democracy, but on performance. We believe that stakeholders (citizens, gov’t employees, etc) know a lot about how the government can achieve better outcomes, and consulting them can help us make change happen and revive collective action.
With this in mind, we are looking for passionate students who believe in Tikun Olam, have a deep interest in public management and public policy, and can convince government agencies, states, counties and cities in the advantages of using a digital consulting platform. Taking action is the key here! We are looking for proactive and creative people who can engage others in a meaningful way.
WHAT ARE WE OFFERING
Freedom, and shared outcomes.
We trust our staff, from the interns to the developers, to do the best in their ability to achieve our mission statement (read it on our website!). You might be engaged in writing a background paper for an important roundtable headed by the CEO of the Prime Minister’s Office, or call cities nobody ever heard of to offer them to consult their citizens on recycling policy. You will have full freedom, and a lot of trust, to pursue the outcomes we believe in.
WHAT YOU WILL DO
Our team is based in Ramat Gan, Israel and the Founder has just relocated to Washington, DC. Potential interns will:
– Learn our method. You will be introduced to the cutting edge methods of inclusive decision making, and learn from the best resources for crowd wisdom, effectiveness, change making and process design. You might even be asked to write some pieces to our blog about these things, so that others can learn about them as well.
– Support our Israeli team and do international research on various policy fields, to serve the Israeli government in making better decisions. We currently help the Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Environment, Authority for the Development of the Arab Sector at the PMO, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and others. We believe poilcymaking should start with learning about what others have done internationally, and our background papers reflect our approach.
– Approach and manage relationships with cities, federal agencies and other organizations, in order to increase the outreach of our digital consulting platform. If these efforts end up with a concrete projects, you will probably have a significant role in managing it. That’s the point where you might be officially hired by Insights, and move from an intern to an employee.
