We are seeking either a part-time intern for Spring / Summer or a full-time Intern for the Summer.

Do you wonder about where products come from and who they’re made by? Do words like “Fair Trade”, “Ethically Sourced”, and “Sustainability” grab your attention? Do you see creative problem solving not as a bullet point on your LinkedIn, but as a way of life? If so, you may be the Production Intern that The Citizenry is looking for!

The Citizenry is a socially conscious home décor company reinventing the way you shop for your home. Country by country, we partner with master artisans, blending our modern style with their time-tested techniques.

We are currently seeking a Production Intern who will help us foster our partnerships with artisan groups from around the globe. You’ll be working directly with our Production team to help support artisan relationships, manage shipping and logistics, and ensure that our business relationships help to improve the lives of the communities we partner with. As no two days are ever alike, you’ll be learning a lot with us. The intern will report in to the Production Manager, but will work closely with all members of the Production team.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

  • Attention to detail. With a lot of moving pieces (literally, shipments traveling by plane, train, and boat every day) an eye for detail is key.
  • Problem solver. You take action. You can not only identify problems, but you are the one to solve it.
  • Interest in global economies. A curiosity to learn about different cultures and the products they’re known for.
  • Go-getter. You have a get-it-done and no-task-too-small attitude.
  • Quick learner. You have a knack for picking things up quickly.
  • Problem solver. You take action. You see a problem and quickly move to resolve it.
  • A sense of humor. Days can get long. Problems can get tricky. As long as we can laugh together, it’s all fun.

THE JOB

  • Help facilitate the Certification process for The Citizenry. This will include survey development, data collection & analysis, and competitive research
  • Support the Production team with daily tasks including communications, shipment tracking, and data entry
  • Research in-country packaging solutions for new development and existing products
  • Help us build out an Artisan Database for tracking more than 60 partnerships across 17 countries (and growing!)
  • Ensure all incoming product has the correct labeling and paperwork to clear international customs and can be easily received by our warehouse team
  • Roll up your sleeves and help fill in gaps when needed
