Intern wanted! / by Anne Miltenburg

UPDATE OCTOBER 11: applications cLOSED!

We are looking for a passionate student to support us with lots of different activities at The Brandling. The work ranges from the mundane to the magical and everything in between: tasks that require a brain, knowledge of branding, good English skills, a sharp eye and a great nose for content. The internship starts in the first week of November. Applications are considered on a rolling basis, so apply as soon as you can!

Intern activities

  • Scout the world for the best change-making brands

  • Assist in community management & surveys to better understand our user’s needs

  • Transcribe live event recordings

  • Help turn existing knowledge resources into presentable, lovely looking decks

  • Brand The Change meetup team support and communications

  • Website and blog upkeep

  • Scout the world for leading topic experts on brand skills and subjects of social and environmental change

Who we are looking for:

  • A student in communications, business, social enterprise, journalism, trend research or creative industries

  • Students of the school of life are also welcome to apply, just know this is not an employment opportunity

  • Someone who is not averse to rolling up your sleeve and getting your hands a bit dirty (we are getting our hands dirty all the time too).


Please note, SEO service salespeople and remote assistants companies, that we place a ceremonial curse on any person or company trying to use the application process into a new business or sales opportunity!

Skills

We offer:

  • An internship that gives you the opportunity to do research and get a glimpse of what it takes to build a purpose-driven company at the intersection of branding, social impact, and education

  • A financial stipend per month
