This role is at the center of our Holding team in Amsterdam and Rotterdam. We’ve got a mix of skills here, from Finance and Hospitality to Recruitment, People & Culture, and Marketing. Think of us as the backbone of the company, keeping things running smoothly and helping out everywhere we can. We’re the ones who answer questions, toss around ideas, offer support, and plan those fun outings and initiatives everyone loves. We’re the reliable crew that everyone counts on to keep things rolling.

As an M&A intern, you will play a key role in supporting the M&A Director on all touchpoints of a deal.

At DEPT®, you will work with clever minds who work for a variety of large global projects. We are eager to hire the most talented experts in the game, but we are also looking for a fit with DEPT® and its culture. Someone who is eager to learn, inspires, strives towards a better world, takes the stage, a futurist at heart, and likes to toast to a successful week with us. We strongly support diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.

  • Have an excellent academic background;
  • Are available 2 days per week from September 1st for 5 or 6 months


  • DEPT® has been named a Great Place To Work in 2023 – in the Netherlands and has been a Certified B Corp® since 2021 -award winning in the best way possible.
  • Awesome clients. Whether big, small, local or global — at DEPT® you’ll get the opportunity to work with all of them. And we celebrate all of our successes together!

  • Great fringe benefits; use of OV-bikes, an NS Business Card and many other goodies.


We are pioneers at heart. What does that mean? We are always looking forward, thinking of what we can create tomorrow that does not exist today. We were born digital and we are a new model of agency, with a deep skillset in tech and marketing. That’s why we hire curious, self-driven, talented people who never stop innovating.

Our culture is big enough to cope and small enough to care. Meaning, that with people across 30+ countries, we’re big enough to provide you with the best tools, global opportunities, and benefits that help you thrive.
