Do you want to learn more about effective digital communication and marketing? Do you want to work with big clients? Are you eager to gain work experience in the EU sphere?

We want you to spend at least three months and to share our digital passion with us. But the longer you stay, the more you will learn about the many aspects of our digital work and the more opportunities you’ll have to work on projects for our high-profile clients.

About ZN

We were digital before it became the defining aspect of the 21st century. And we’re still leading thought development in the EU arena on how to use digital tools for reaching out to stakeholders. We have conceived and implemented successful communication campaigns for many demanding clients, from European associations to major corporate customers, not forgetting the largest group in the European Parliament and the award-winning #DiscoverEU campaign.

What you get out of this opportunity

You will develop your skills in everything digital, from social media management and Twitter event activation to digital research and project management. As well as gaining practical experience and becoming a ZN-certified social media expert, you’ll find out what life at a fast-moving agency is really like. You’ll also discover just how cool it is to work in an agency with more than 15 nationalities and be a team that has virtual aperols and quizzes.
