Driebergen-Rijsenburg (Netherlands)

5 juli 2024

Do you want to make a difference and contribute to creating a better world? Are you interested in developing your skills and knowledge, while putting your ideals to work? Join us, we are a frontrunner in ethical banking and global impact investing, and we need people like you to make change happen.

We believe that money can change the world for the better. In fact, our organisation was founded on this belief. Our mission is to create a society that protects and promotes the quality of life of all its members with human dignity at its core.

An ongoing focus on equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) is therefore crucial for us to achieve that mission, challenge ourselves, and thrive.

Our organisation has grown in both scale and complexity over the last few years, which creates more opportunities for people to join us. Currently we would like to bring on board a dynamic and positive-minded student to support and learn from our Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion strategy and activities during a 6-month internship.


How you will make a difference

You will help us to ‘finance change to change finance’, by supporting our Group Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Lead on our 2024 – 2025 objectives to build a diverse workforce and contribute to an equitable and inclusive culture. You will also engage with a variety of Triodos Bank colleagues and some external partners on specific EDI initiatives and communications.

As a part of your daily routine:

  • You will respond to enquiries in the Group EDI inbox and maintain the EDI activity and communications calendar.
  • You will coordinate the logistics of initiatives such as the Triodos Mutual Mentoring Programme and Refugee Talent Hub partnership.
  • You will draft communications and work closely with colleagues to raise awareness of EDI topics via our internal communications channels.
  • You will provide support to activities led by Triodos inclusion forums and other co-worker led EDI activities.

What you will bring

Your unique potential and your values matter for us most. We look for people who are self-aware and who think in a holistic way, always conscious about their impact on society, environment, and the economy.

To be successful in this role, you will:

  • be a motivated student who is interested in further development within equity, diversity, and inclusion; HR; organisational development; internal communications; or (co-worker) community building
  • be enrolled at a higher education institution (MBO, HBO or WO) throughout the duration of the internship
  • be passionate about equity, diversity, and inclusion topics
  • be well organised, self-motivated, and able to manage your time efficiently
  • have strong interpersonal skills; be able to work in an international environment and exhibit good cultural awareness
  • communicate well and have an interest in content creation
  • have good command of English both written and verbal

Your future colleagues

The EDI Intern will work alongside the EDI Lead in the Triodos Group HR Centre of Expertise team. There is a lot of momentum, and of course, work to do, on embedding our EDI strategy so it is an exciting time to join us on an internship! We also want to make sure that every co-worker, at every level of the organisation, understands their role in making Triodos Bank an inclusive community, and internal communication is an important part of achieving that.

The HR Centre of Expertise team also includes Co-worker Experience, Talent Management and Leadership, Talent Acquisition, and Learning and Development.
