Your Job

You will be responsible for all Innovation focused events that are organized by the Marketing & Communications NL department. You will be working on the reshaped Accenture Innovation Summit event, ready for new era of hybrid impact – called Forward /. You will be shaping, managing and facilitating one of the biggest innovation events in the Netherlands. Focus will lie on acquiring and deepening knowledge in various aspects of event organization: from production management to execution. You will be collaborating with internal and external stakeholders in order to arrange an abundant variety of innovation-related activities. During this internship you will be working on all-round professional development, with emphasis on both applied and hard skills (responsibility, organizational management, negotiation, decision-making, collaboration).

Are you looking for a challenging event management internship, do you have a ‘hands-on mentality’, and are you flexible, stress-resistant and self-reliant? But most importantly, are you excited to play a key role in the organization of the yearly Blue Tulip Awards and its many side events? Then we are looking for you!
