Are you a graduate student, passionate about Communication, Sustainability and Policy and looking for an experience in an international environment?

As Corporate Affairs intern for the Europe region, you would be a key player in our small team and part of the broader Corporate Affairs function for HEINEKEN. You would have the opportunity to contribute to defining, communicating and managing pan-European projects, supporting with research and analysis of external developments and developing materials and assets for internal and external use. You would be in regular contact with our local CA teams from across Europe to co-ordinate projects, provide support and gather data and feedback, as well as working closely with the broader CA function and especially connecting with the CA intern network.

De begeleiding die je krijgt vind ik heel uniek. Je zit niet vast in gebaande paden, maar er wordt gekeken naar hoe jij dingen aanpakt. Zo werd in mijn 1e week gevraagd; Wat zou jij doen? Hierdoor werd ik uitgedaagd om een eigen denkwijze te vormen en nog belangrijker: hier ook achter durven staan.

Al met al is het Heineken Management Traineeship in mijn ogen een mooie kans om meteen uit de schoolbanken veel vrijheid en verantwoordelijkheid te krijgen. Je leert het bedrijf echt kennen en ontdekt het commerciële speelveld vanuit verschillende invalshoeken.
