OVERVIEW

Women in Identity(WiD) if you haven’t heard of Women in Identity, were aiming to be a new association focused on driving the topic of diversity and inclusion into the field of digital identity.

We’re new and still small but we pack a big punch when it comes to influence.

We’re looking for someone who can join the team to pick up where our US intern left off to drive us through to the next stage of our development, and really help us shape what 2019 will look like.

Weare looking for someone who will show self-motivation, resourcefulness, creativity and intellectual drive as part of a small association.

The successful intern will need to be prepared to do everything from basic admin duties, to communicating with WiD’s members through social media, or newsletter and website.

In return, we are offering an opportunity by way of an internship for someone to grow and develop skills and a career in STEM in a marketing capacity. The opportunity will enable the intern to meet some of the most influential people working in the field of digital identity in the UK.
