For our office in Rotterdam and Amsterdam, we are looking for ambitious online marketers who want to learn from the best consultants in the country during our SEA Traineeship.

For this role we're looking for a fluent Dutch speaker

The traineeship is a training program in which we train you to become an online marketing professional. By learning, but above all by doing! During the traineeship, you will support in setting up, optimising and analysing online campaigns and projects for our customers. You will be trained by our experienced colleagues, but also by our cooperation partners such as Google, Microsoft and Facebook.
