Project Management and Communications paid internship

Nudge Global Impact Challenge




We are sorry but the internship application process has now been closed. Applications will re-open in November in view of the organisation of the Nudge Global Impact Challenge 2021!


Do you want to build on your knowledge of project management, social media, communications and marketing in an international environment? Are you currently living in the Netherlands? Join social enterprise Nudge in Amsterdam in July 2020 for your internship and become part of the Nudge Global Impact Challenge team. 

You will have the opportunity to develop your skills in a ‘hands-on’ environment and be part of a small team of motivated and enthusiastic professionals. We’re looking for an intern for a period of 6 - 8 months to support us in creating and realising the Nudge Global Impact Challenge 2020.

The Nudge Global Impact Challenge is an eight-month online personal development programme for young professionals (23 – 33 yrs) from all over the world (August 2020 - April 2021) with a Grand Finale closing event in June 2021 in the Netherlands. It focuses on leadership, sustainability and impact creation. 2020 is the 11th edition of the Challenge. Our 1,000 alumni form a global network of like-minded young professionals creating impact within their organisations, networks and social environments. Participants join us from leading companies (profit and non-profit), social enterprises, governmental and non-governmental organisations, or while completing their studies. Previous participants describe the Challenge as a life changing event.

This internship offers you the possibility to work on this project and step into an international network of young professionals, highly motivated to work towards a sustainable world.

What will you be doing?

Communications, marketing and administration are the main areas you will be operating in. Under our guidance you will keep our social media channels and our website up to date. You will also be working on organising PR material and you will be involved in the search for speakers, candidates, organisations and networks for young professionals. At the same time you will come up with possibilities to spread the word about the Nudge Global Impact Challenge. Important for all projects, we would like you to carry out general administrative and project management tasks, such as registration of participants, carrying out mailings and following up on queries, mainly by e-mail.

Next to the Nudge Global Impact Challenge project, you will work on the Nudge Sustainability Hub, a website that publishes articles about sustainability projects written by reporters from all over the world. You will connect with the reporters, plan and publish their articles and promote them on our social media.

Who are we looking for?

You are about to graduate in the field of communications, marketing, sustainability and/or project management. The use of social media knows no secrets for you and you would love to develop your skills further in a global business environment. Knowledge of MailChimp, WordPress, Canva, Adobe Creative Cloud are a plus. You have an excellent knowledge of English (verbal and written), speaking Dutch would be an extra.
