Together we go beyond.

Change doesn’t have to be hard. You make it look easy, helping people understand the value of new technologies and digital behaviors at work, guiding them through their adoption journey.  


About you 

You are a strategic thinker who is driven by motivating people in creative ways. You are passionate about technology and want to help others make the most of it. You love taking part in the design and implementation of complex change initiatives that simplify user experiences. You enjoy creating stunning content that is engaging and easy to consume. With your belief in the power of change, you get everyone excited about adopting new tools, features, and behaviors.  


About the internship 

Even organizations committed to technology changes find it hard to make them happen. That’s why we need you. As a Change Enablement Intern working in the ITS (Information Technology Services) & IS (Information Security) organizations at Avanade, you will join a team of Change practitioners that are actively enabling people through technology and security changes at Avanade. You will work with your team to implement Change Enablement plans and deliverables, with a strong focus on Microsoft Technology and Security tools used by Avanade employees 


Here are some examples of day-to-day activities: 

  • Build Change Plans, including stakeholder analysis and impact assessment 

  • Build and execute Communication and Training plans 

  • Build guidance documents, news articles, announcements, digital flyers, tutorial videos, etc. 

  • Measure change and adoption to demonstrate success with available data 

  • Participate in collaboration meetings with ITS & IS stakeholders  

  • Participate in meetings with the Change Enablement team 


This is an internal-facing internship working in Avanade’s ITS & IS organizations. 


Why you should apply: 

  • With this internship, you will get an understanding of Change Management and the opportunity to apply these methodologies in the real world – all with the support of a lead and peers that will help you be successful along the way 

  • You will get to connect your people-oriented profile with the Technology and Security industries, two fast-growing areas for career opportunities. 

  • You will gain experience working in a large, multinational, fast-paced firm.  

  • With Accenture and Microsoft as our partner companies, you will also get access to great resources – from early access to new technologies, direct access to people’s expertise, internal career opportunities, networking, and more. 


Your skills 

We’d love it if your profile includes: 

  • Studies and experience in a relevant field, e.g., Change Management, Communications, Marketing, Organizational Psychology, Education, Learning & Development, Business Administration 

  • Outstanding communication skills, e.g., writing communications, building presentations, driving conversations with stakeholders, presenting to groups
