Management Trainee - Norrsken VC

We are hiring a superstar Management Trainee to support the General Partners at Norrsken VC!

Norrsken VC is Europe’s largest early stage impact VC fund focused on investing in rapidly scaling early stage start-ups that use technology to solve some of the world’s greatest challenges while building highly profitable businesses. Norrsken VC was incubated by Norrsken Foundation, but today operates as an independent venture capital fund. Norrsken Foundation is a non-profit organisation supporting entrepreneurs daring to tackle society's biggest challenges, such as poverty, mental health, famine, food waste and environmental issues.

We are a small team of 15 with an entrepreneurial spirit where every person makes a significant contribution to our results, now looking for the next person to help us achieve our mission: to make a dent in the world by proving that impact investing can combine positive impact on people and planet with strong financial returns.

The traineeship is paid and full time for minimum six, up to twelve months, starting in fall of 2024.

Our dream candidate has a passion for impact combined with analytical skills and problem solving ability. You enjoy working in a fast paced environment where everyday is different from the previous one. Maybe you've already built up some working experience - be it from the investment world, consulting, start-ups, industry, or the nonprofit sector - or maybe you haven't had the opportunity yet, but have a strong passion and drive! For this traineeship opportunity, it is less about what you've done so far, and more about who you are, what motivates you, and if you share our passion for impact and entrepreneurship.

The role is Stockholm based, but our team is international and we strongly believe that we make the best decisions as a diverse team, hence all applicants are encouraged and we are excited to see what new perspectives our next hire will bring to the team! The only limitation is that we unfortunately cannot sponsor work visas in Sweden for this role.

Examples of areas you will take part of:

- Be heavily involved in all areas of the organisation; marketing/comms, events, finance, impact and investments.
- Support in both operational and strategic processes.
- Work hands on with projects related to events, fundraising, team development etc.
- Support in other AdHoc tasks

You report to one of our General Partners and work closely with all members of the management team on a rotating schedule. Note that while you will be working very closely with our General Partners who are all investors, however, this role is less focused on investments and more on building the Norrsken VC business and organisation. If you are looking for an opportunity to learn more about investments, please instead consider our visiting analyst role.

We think you’ll make the most impact if you are in this role for ca 12 months, during that time, there will be plenty of opportunities to get to know impact companies in our ecosystem with the ambition to find a new challenge for you post the traineeship.

You are a good fit if you:

- Want to make the world a better place, and believe that entrepreneurship and business models are great driving forces for this
- Enjoy working in a fast-paced environment, taking ownership of tasks from start to finish
- Are a positive individual who likes to contribute to a vibrant, driven and fun team culture
- Are curious to learn and enjoy deep-diving into new areas
- Are an individual who thrives in a dynamic environment, where processes may iterate along the way and no one day is like another
- Have an analytical mindset and enjoy working with numbers and data
