Civitella Ranieri Foundation (Italy) looks for interns in 2013

Interns at Civitella are invited for a minimum of six weeks during this period of May through November. Arrival and departure dates should coincide as much as possible with the arrivals and departures of our Fellows; however, often we ask an intern to arrive a week or two earlier and to work an extra week or two at the end of the season to help us close. Priority is given to candidates with longer periods of availability to avoid too much turnover while in session. Ideally, we seek two to three interns to cover the entire season as outlined below.

Working knowledge of English and Italian is necessary, as is a valid driver’s license and international driver’s license. Interns must be able to drive a large standard stick shift vehicle. We prefer interns who have advanced computer skills, some experience in the arts, in study or work abroad, and who are self-motivated, independent, work well in a group/team environment, have the flexibility to deal with the unpredictable set of tasks which vary from day to day, and are able to deal with an intensely motivated community in an idyllic but somewhat isolated place of work. An ideal intern should maintain a positive, willing and helpful attitude among co-workers and Fellows, and should be open and diplomatic in his/her interactions with people from diverse backgrounds and ages.

Compensation:

We offer selected candidates roundtrip airfare/transportation (from place of residence to Civitella), lodging and meals for the period of internship, and a stipend for incidental expenses of $150 per week. Means of payment is coordinated through the New York office.

All applications are due by December 31, 2012
