For over 20 years, Boster Group has been a trusted advisor to a number of Fortune 500 companies, leveraging its knowledge, expertise and global network to deliver clients’ business and social impact goals.

We are a boutique firm; everyone at Boster Group is passionate and knowledgeable about social impact – whether that is through education, arts and culture or any one of the thousands of organisations creating positive change.
We are a friendly and hard-working team with an open and collaborative company culture. Furthermore, we are non-hierarchical – even our most recent hires are directly meeting, pitching to and interviewing some of the most senior executives in financial and professional services, luxury, retail and government.
In the UK, museums account for 9% of publicly-funded cultural institutions and 41% of the cultural sector’s carbon emissions. Due to the structure of public and philanthropic funding in the cultural sector, obtaining the capital funds required to address this problem is particularly challenging. Boster Group is working with a global energy company, the UK Government, a large global financial services company that is a leader in sustainable finance, and several premier British cultural institutions to develop new financing models that will accelerate the UK cultural sector’s transition to a Net Zero, sustainable economy.
Boster Group is looking to work with a graduate-level student with demonstrable professional experience (this can be as part of an internship or graduate programme in a corporate environment) to lay the groundwork for developing new models of finance, e.g., green bonds. This may include the following deliverables:
We would expect the internship(s) to take place on a part-time basis (total of 50-80 hours) over 8-12 weeks between February and May 2022. We will, however, be flexible to the needs of candidates based on their education and other personal commitments. The internship would be compensated with academic credit, where possible, and Boster Group would work closely with the candidate to ensure that the scope of the internship and final deliverables met their academic interests and professional needs. Firm deliverables and due dates would be mutually agreed at the start of the internship(s). We do offer a stipend or project fee if no course credit is available, depending on the candidate’s immigration status, needs and availability as well as the final scope of work. This will be (at least) the equivalent of the local living wage.
Priority will be given to candidates who are looking to apply these – or any other projects –towards academic credit. Please make this clear in your cover letter, as we will work closely with the selected candidates to ensure the work is optimised to ensure their learning.
Boster Group is committed to the ongoing success and employment of our incredible interns. Thanks in part to introductions, conversations and recommendations that Boster Group made, 100% of previous interns have been placed in full-time employment in their field of choice – including impact investing, corporate social responsibility and partnerships consulting – within 6 months of graduating their course of study.
