If you are curious about what it is like to work for a small, international team in the vibrant Leiden region, then why not consider applying for an internship at Leiden International Centre?
Interns are an integral part of our team, and we hire interns regularly throughout the year, many of whom complete an internship with us as part of their study programme. We usually ask for a minimum of 32 hours a week for 4 months, and have 3 approximate starting dates: January/February, May/June, and September/October. Learn more about the experience of being an intern at Leiden International Centre, and our current vacancies, on this page.
Our interns assist us in a wide range of different tasks. There are usually at least 2 Leiden International Centre interns at any one time, which gives you the opportunity to work with one another, and focus on different areas of our work. Regular tasks include assisting with social media planning (from drafting posts for our Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter pages, to scheduling and posting the final results), communications (such as creating and distributing our monthly newsletter), website management, writing articles for our website, and events (from information sessions to our Meet&Mingles). There are also often other projects or tasks that are less regular, such as researching into our target audience or assisting with our Helpdesk.

Be Part of a Vibrant and Close-Knit Team!
Being part of the team at Leiden International Centre also means participating in team activities and events! This could be by attending our monthly Meet & Mingle (a social event for internationals to meet one other in a more casual setting), joining our colleagues at our bi-weekly afternoon borrels, or attending cooking workshops with our Leiden&Partners colleagues (all of whom share an office with us). To work well as a team, it's important that we also have fun together, and that's why all of our interns are always welcome to join us at any of these (and other) company events and activities.
