Internship Strategist – Brand & Advertising


For our office in Amsterdam we are looking for interns to strengthen our Brand & Advertising Strategy team and make our work even better. 

Please note that we are looking for working internships (‘meewerkstage’) and not graduation internships (‘afstudeerstage’). Additionally, to be eligible for this internship you are required to be living and studying in the Netherlands.

As a strategy intern you will assist the Strategy team by: 

  • researching consumer trends and behaviour, 
  • analysing the competitors of our clients,
  • finding creative inspiration and insights from various sources.

We are looking for analytical, curious, and creative minds. Ability to see patterns and get a quick grasp of markets, data, or creative work is key. We greatly value you having a wide interest in all things cultural; from music to fashion to tech. 

You will work within an ambitious team of strategists who are constantly working to not only help our clients, but also fight to keep raising the bar for Dept. This requires a critical and creative mind, but above all a positive attitude.

Who are we? We are Dept, a young, award winning and straight up lit digital agency. We make sure big clients such as, Chocomel, Netflix, Converse, Nivea and Univé get their digital groove on in the best way possible. To become a Depster, we are looking not only for talent and expertise, but also for the perfect Dept-fit. Someone who is eager to learn, inspire and get inspired, and wants to create a better (digital) world. Someone who is all about the future, isn’t afraid to speak their mind (working no-bullshit radar), dares to step into the spotlight and who toasts with us to a successful week on Friday afternoon.

Please submit the motivation letter in English.

  • Are fluent in both Dutch and English, both spoken and written;
  • Are analytical, curious, and creative;

  • The opportunity to develop and grow into a true professional;
  • Intensive guidance and full membership to the team;
  • A decent internship allowance;
  • A dazzling Vrijmibo and legendary team outings*.
