Once we announce a return to office date for 2022 (still TBD), all local employees will have the option of working a minimum of two days and maximum of 5 days in the office. ABOUT C+C

C+C is an award-winning integrated marketing agency based in Seattle all about changing behaviors for good. We help our clients motivate people to embrace a variety of social and environmental actions. Like choosing an energy-efficient appliance. Applying for college programs. Getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Making good financial decisions. Taking public transit. Saving water. Basically, doing things to make the world a better place. The Utility Solutions Intern will work primarily within our Utility Solutions Pod at C+C. The US Pod works with utility partners, manufacturers, distributors and retailers to bring energy savings to residential and commercial customers throughout the region. These utility programs involve thousands of products that save energy, water, and money for utility customers. We plan, implement, and market these programs from start to finish – this involves supporting retailers and distributors, setting up contracts, keeping a pulse on newly emerging trends, planning events, developing signage for placement in retail stores, and so much more. In the US Pod, we are experts at spreadsheets, whizzes at partner communication, and tactile with data. We also love to educate the public about how great energy efficiency is for the earth and for the wallet!

When we are able to reopen our office, we ask that you be available for a hybrid or in office schedule.

For any such activity, appropriate PPE will be provided and the highest precautions will be taken to ensure both personal comfort and risk minimization. Responsibilities
