Wanted: ambitious student

Are you currently enrolled as a student, and do you get enthusiastic about terms like communications, strategy, branding, and PR? If so, Linden & Barbosa is looking for you. However, please note: If your ambition extends only so far as getting coffee and refilling the copier, do not bother responding to this vacancy! At Linden & Barbosa, we only have space in our dynamic organization for a truly driven work placement student with the confidence to work as a fully-fledged staff member. This means working hard on important assignments for different exciting brands.

If we haven't scared you off yet, great! You may be the right candidate for this work experience placement. We are looking for you if, while at college or university, you often feel like you have to take charge, and you always put your own creative spin on standard assignments. At Linden & Barbosa, you will learn about smart earned and owned media. This is not something that you will encounter in class! The more effort you display, the more you can do. That you are not yet able to do everything is logical. We value ambition and the desire to learn new things more than already being able to do things.

What we are looking for:

  • students in their third year of higher vocational education or university education who are enrolled in communications, media, and marketing studies, or something comparable
  • an availability of 40 hours per week, for a period of four to five months.
  • excellent command of written and spoken Dutch, and the talent to use these language skills to write engaging texts
  • the ability to create communication concepts
  • the ability to visualize these concepts using Adobe software (Photoshop, InDesign, etc.)

Examples of what you will be doing:

  • actively participating in brainstorming sessions
  • writing press releases
  • maintaining media relations
  • assisting with events
  • providing editorial planning for social media
  • writing blog and Facebook posts, and sending tweets
  • monitoring all media results

The work placement remuneration will be determined in consultation with Linden & Barbosa. Interested? Send your CV and a brief covering letter along with examples of your creative work to Rachel Bulckaen, For further information, feel free to contact us on +31 (0)20 589 39 93 or visit
