Vacancy: Creative Communications Intern

We're looking to nurture some promising young talent and in exchange, we're hoping you can help us with some general creative communications support as our boutique purpose-driven consultancy grows!

The Humblebrag is an editorial platform and a strategic communications consultancy dedicated to amplifying the voices of change-makers and creative innovators. We help companies and brands define their authentic brand purpose, and then help to amplify this message and positioning through strategic communications across owned and earned media channels. 

Recently we were shortlisted in the SAN New Kids on The Block Award - listed as one of the most promising new Dutch companies in 2019. #humblebrag

Our Raison D'etre

A recent Weber Shandwick report confirms that 77% of people believe CEOs need to speak out in defense of their companies’ values. This means that for business leaders with a fire in their belly, the time is ripe to spread their vision far and wide. We champion thought leaders, and believe the growing call for 'brand purpose' is an opportunity for some, and a threat to others. Read our point of view here.

The Role

We’re looking for a self-starter, who is both social media savvy and understands how to write with a clear and coherent point of view. (If you’re not quite there yet, don’t worry - we can support you to develop your ‘voice’ in your writing).

Ideally, you know a thing or two about digital marketing, and even better, you have a few basic skills in design (InDesign is a plus!)

Over the course of this internship, you’ll have a lot of freedom, so we need someone with a bit of life experience who is motivated and can operate, at times, on their own.

Tasks and responsibilities:

  • Social media support
  • Research & writing support
  • Events support
  • Media mapping & media tracking
  • Creative content support

What can we offer you?

This is your opportunity to learn from two of Amsterdam’s finest PR talents as we grow our purpose-driven PR & communications business. We're willing to be flexible for the right candidate, and ideally, we're looking for someone who will grow with us as we grow.

What will we provide?

  • A monthly stipend
  • A beautiful office smack bang in the heart of Amsterdam’s Jordaan
  • Mentorship in pr, writing, entrepreneurship, community building and events management
  • Our office is above a cake shop. Needless to say, we provide the best coffee, and cake!

Here's a little quote from our former Intern, Carl Petter Moldestad:

"During my time as an intern at The Humblebrag, I underwent a big learning process in copywriting, editing and social media management. The knowledge I acquired is invaluable, and the introduction to the Amsterdam Creative Entrepreneurs (ACE) Collective, the side-hustle of The Humblebrag, has helped me to forge useful and lasting relationships. It’s just a really good place to be for any young aspiring communications professional!"

Thanks Carl!
