Job description

Currently, our UtrechtInc team consists of 5 people. However, we’re looking to expand our reach on campus and are seeking a marketing intern to join our team for 4 to 5 days a week, starting in August/September for a period of 4-6 months. While experience with marketing would be nice, it’s not mandatory to apply. We’re more than willing to teach you the ropes. We’re seeking someone who is creative, collaborative, and eager to learn. You have the opportunity to make this position as challenging as you desire by taking on extra assignments in areas that interest you and are relevant to the incubator. While proficiency in Dutch is a plus, it’s not a requirement, as our community is very international.

Tasks for the marketing intern include (but are not limited to):

  • Creating social media posts, primarily for LinkedIn and Instagram. We use Canva, an intuitive online design program, for most of our visuals.
  • Content planning using Buffer to schedule our social media content.
  • Creating website content such as blogs and news articles.
  • Optimizing our website content for Google.
  • Organizing events for our community.

What’s in it for you?

  • You’ll receive a monthly stipend of 450 euros (based on a full-time contract).
  • You’ll gain valuable insights into entrepreneurship and the startup ecosystem. If interested, you can participate in our workshops to further enhance your knowledge.
  • You’ll become part of a supportive team that feels like family.
  • You will build an extensive network in the startup ecosystem.
  • You’ll develop expertise in online marketing.
