Over deze job

Do you want to join us on our mission to shape democracies for the digital age? Are you looking for an international and fast-paced, yet collaborative and inclusive environment to thrive in?

You have come to the right place.

CitizenLab, a social impact scale-up with its HQ in Brussels, aims to make public decision-making more participatory, inclusive, and responsive. The SaaS platform is already being used by over 230 cities and municipalities in +10 different countries, facilitating two-way communication between governments and their citizens. Since it was founded in 2015, CitizenLab gave +500,000 citizens a direct voice in local politics and got recognized as 'Best Social Impact Startup in Europe'. CitizenLab is looking for purpose-driven talent to join us on our mission to have +2.5 million citizens actively participate via its e-democracy platforms in cities across the globe.

Wat zal je doen?

We are looking for a Business Development Intern to act as the liaison between our Marketing and Sales teams. Your role will be to seek new business opportunities by contacting and developing relationships with potential customers.

  • Devise personalized, high-quality outreach campaigns to governments
  • Prospect online to find new opportunities through the news, social media, etc;
  • Qualify leads from marketing campaigns as sales opportunities;
  • Present CitizenLab to governments and listen to their needs;
  • Brainstorm with marketing on specific campaigns and value propositions;
  • Constantly collaborate with an international team of business developers on outreach campaigns;
  • Work closely together with the head of Business Development to prepare reporting and design sales materials.

You will be working with business development and marketing in different markets (a.o. US, France, UK, Netherland, and/or Belgium) during your internship, exposing you to all facets of working internationally and across cultures.

Note: Internships are ideally for a 6-month period, and have a minimum duration of 3 months.

Wie je bent

What do we expect from you?

  • You are student business, politics, or anything related. However, your degree is not the most important- you'll learn much on the spot. Your level of interest in our mission is much more important.
  • Enthusiasm, humor, empathy, and the ability to convey this through phone, email and in-person communication.
  • Organisational skills to help you manage and coordinate the different projects.
  • Hungry to learn. We invest heavily in making each other better.
  • Bias towards immediate action and results. You’ve got to love measuring your own progress.
  • Good communication skills, both orally and in writing, in both English and Dutch or French.
  • Most importantly: you can demonstrate a big appetite to improve the functioning of our democracies and the efficiency of public services!

Eagerness to learn, talent, and enthusiasm are more important than ticking the boxes though. Even if not all desired requirements are met, but you're very excited about the role, we want to hear from you.

Wat we bieden

What can you expect from us?

  • Unlock your full potential and have a social impact at scale. We're daily working with +230 governments to connect them to their citizens.
  • Become a key factor in our rapid transition from startup to a scaleup (50 employees).
  • Work in a fast-paced, collaborative and supportive environment. We share a participatory culture of autonomy and ownership by everyone, not only by the leadership.
  • Be part of our dynamic, international team. We organise many team activities and afterworks (whenpossible). We are as serious about our work in digital democracy, as about having fun on our journey together.
  • Informal work vibe with open communication and full transparency on results.
  • Participate in inspiring team lunches, our company book club, bi-quarterly strategic town halls, bi-yearly off-site team retreats.
  • Work 10% of your time on personal projects and self-development for the long run. We’re growing fast together, both collectively and individually.
  • Receive an allowance of €800/month during your internship. You are part of the team and will have access to perks such as holidays, training budget, well-being budget, collective bonus plan, your own laptop, full flexibility on working from home, and much more.
