About IT’S Internships
IT’S interns help out with stage production, marketing, social media, website coding and more. Read more about the specific positions below.
You’ll be part of the most fun, international and vibrant community in Stockholm! We don’t have any office space so you will be working mostly from home on your own computer or if you are interested in one of the stage management positions then you’ll be working at the venues where we have the shows.
We’re looking for people who can work independently and take initiative as well as being able to coordinate work with the other interns, the Head of School, General Manager and Artistic Director of IT’S.
Time commitment: The internship can be anywhere from a few hours per week to full-time, depending on your availability and your responsibilities. Let us know in your application how much time you are ready to commit. For the most part you will have flexible work hours. Depending on your area of responsibility you might be required to work certain evenings when we have shows etc. Otherwise you can plan your work according to your own schedule. Fall internships run from August/September through mid-December and spring internships from January until May/June. The exact starting and ending dates are flexible.
Reimbursement: All internships are unpaid but depending on how much work and skills put in, interns get discounts on IT’S classes and shows.
The discount on regular weekly classes depends on how many hours per week you work (on average):
• 2-4 hours/week – 25%
• 4-8 hours/week – 50%
• More than 8 hours/week – 100%
*Discounts on weekend- and additional classes: 15%
