Internship: Marketing/Communication

Do you love design and the story behind it? Do you think you know the best way to tell these stories, both visually and in text? Are you always up to date on the latest developments in (marketing) trends, both online and offline?

Then yes, we got the internship for you! VANMOKUM is looking for an inspiring new marketing intern to join the Marketing team. You’ll be involved in anything that has to do with Marketing, where your opinion, input and creativity is much appreciated. We promise, an experience like this will serve as an excellent foundation for your future in the marketing world.


Job description

So, what exactly will you do?

Since VANMOKUM is the creator of 5 design brands (LEFF amsterdam, Graypants, Karven, Droog and Frama) you will have the opportunity to work for not one, but several brands that each have their own story to tell. You’ll be helping to get these stories across in the best way possible, both visually and in text.

When joining our VANMOKUM marketing team you'll be working on our products’ personalities and strategies on an international level. With the opportunity to make your ideas come true and work on dynamic and innovative projects, you'll be able to have a true impact on our brands. In this job you get real responsibilities that support your personal and professional development, while getting a good insight into the organization. To conclude: if you are ambitious, keen to learn and can't wait to get started…then you’ve come to the right place.

Some specific examples, you ask? Well, you can think of setting up newsletters, creating social media posts, organizing events, creating folders and flyers for these events… We can go on, but we’re curious what marketing means for you! Perhaps you have some interesting ideas - your own creativity is much appreciated. 

Period: beginning of September 2018 till February 2019. (other periods can be discussed)

Okay, and who are you?

A huge plus about being our intern is that you’ll work for several brands, not just one, so it’s a great learning process… but it can also be a bit hectic. Each brand has their own visual style and tone of voice, and you’ll be learning all of them - which can get confusing. Therefore, some organisational skills should come in useful, where you know how to follow-up on tasks and can give accurate updates where a certain project stands.

You’re also somebody that understands marketing strategies and knows how to implement them in your operational work and tasks, where you have an eagerness to learn all the ins and outs about our brands. Besides, you’re tech-savvy and if something can be done more effective - you know how (or like to find out how)! Working in a team is something you love, since we enjoy brainstorming together. Nevertheless, you know how to work independently and self-sufficient in which you’re dedicated to your projects, a fast learner and taking initiative.

Sounds like a real job, doesn’t it? Don’t worry, there is definitely room to make mistakes. At the end of the day this is the only way to learn! During this period, we are right beside you for good guidance. 

What would we need from you?

  • You're studying anything Marketing or Communication related
  • You’re good with social media
  • You preferably know how to work with Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop
  • You’re curious and eager to learn
  • Knowing your way around a camera would be a nice bonus
  • Your English should be good both in verbal and written communication. Any other language you speak is a nice extra!

Enough about you, let’s talk about us!

If we haven’t convinced you by now this internship is perfect for you, get ready for what we have to offer!

From our studio in Amsterdam we design, develop and admire beautiful and unique products. Our own brands are LEFF amsterdam, Droog, Frama, Karven, Graypants and our latest asset: Soundskins. Every brand represents a different style and has their own story – one that you’ll be representing. Besides producing our own labels, we’re also distributor for several other design brands. This means our team covers inside and outside sales, PR and the full distribution. We sell to high-end design and interior stores, museum stores, department stores and several project customers like hotels, clubs and restaurants.

To conclude: You’ll be working for not one, but several amazing brands! We collaborate with renowned designers from all over the world to create unique products. Together with you, we want to tell the stories behind them. 

Okay, last but not least... the practical stuff:

  • You’ll be getting a contract for 40 hours a week for 5 months (Part-time hours are possible as well).  
  • A good financial compensation
  • Good guidance during your internship
  • Parties - we have our own party venue. Yes, you read that right. We call it ‘the kluis’ (it’s in the basement of our building) and it's an awesome area where we celebrate every occasion possible.
  • A - very - nice discount on your new interior and watch collection. 
  • Table football
