Do you have a passion for projects within the (international) energy transition and sustainability? Then Arcadis offers you a challenging internship!

What are you going to do?

The transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy has never been more urgent. We can only limit global warming if we all drastically reduce CO2 emissions. Because the industry as a whole is responsible for about 50% of the total emissions (industry & electricity), this sector has an important responsibility in the reduction of CO2 emissions. Of course, there is more to it than just shutting off one tap and turning on another.

The energy transition has major consequences for the industrial sector, from the adaptation of the energy infrastructure and production facilities to the adjustment of production processes.

Our customers deal with complex issues, such as reducing energy consumption and switching from fossil fuels to renewable or low-carbon energy sources. They also have questions about how they can better organize their energy systems and supply chains. We reduce global warming by helping our customers with the energy transition and making this development possible. Think, for example, of feasibility studies for hydrogen infrastructure, the roll-out of offshore wind farms, making industry more sustainable, strengthening the electricity grid and the energy transition of urban areas.

As an energy transition intern at Arcadis, you will work on these exciting and challenging themes. Among other things, you will participate in projects in the energy transition, you will help to strengthen Arcadis' market position and profile in this area. Because you are centrally positioned in the organization, you quickly develop a large network. You will get a good idea of our strategy and the opportunity to be active in different places in the organization.

Specifically, there are four themes for which we are looking for interns:

  • Market position and profiling of Arcadis in the field of energy transition. You can think of activities related to marketing, strategic orientation and competitor analysis;
  • Technical challenges related to energy transition such as hydrogen, transmission & distribution and heating;
  • Business and economic issues related to energy transition such as business case evaluations, feasibility studies and market outlooks;
  • Transition of the industry such as transition management, process knowledge, sustainability and ESG.

Of course, you don't do this alone. Under the guidance of experienced colleagues and in collaboration with the stakeholders, we will draw up the right research questions.

Will you put your passion and knowledge into practice with us?

What do we ask?

For these internships we are looking for hbo or wo students. You are currently, and throughout the internship period, following a study such as Industrial Engineering & Management, Business Administration, Data Analytics, Geo-Information Science, Civil-, Mechanical-, or Electrical Engineering, Technology, Policy and Management or a related study.

These internship positions are only open for Dutch speaking students. If you're not fluent in Dutch, you will be rejected.

Furthermore, you recognize yourself in the following competencies and skills:

  • You have a passion for sustainability and energy transition;
  • You have an enterprising and proactive attitude;
  • You are socially adept and assertive;
  • You can work both independently and in a team;
  • You have an excellent command of the Dutch and English language.
  • You are available for this internship starting from April 2024
