Cool Things

This is not your average internship: You are directly responsible for everything that will happen in your area of responsibility, which is cool if things go right (and which is not cool when your country underperforms…).
You will develop your promotion, negotiation, leadership, and business communication skills
You will instruct an online team of 5-16 people; Leading online teams is a skill that is very good to have, since a lot of international companies are moving from country teams to online teams as well.
Our team consists of 50 people, with 20 nationalities. with most people in our office being between 21-30 years old; also having this experience of working in an international work environment will be a good element to have on your CV.
If you like working with us, and we like working with you, we might offer you a full-time contract after your internship!


The internship allowance is 650€ per month (additionally, you can try to apply for the Erasmus+ grant).

Characteristics we are looking for in Customer Care & Product Improvement Specialist interns:

Language: you should be able to speak 2 languages: English on an above-average level and Dutch, German, Italian, Spanish, French, Danish or any other Scandinavian language (exception native English Speakers).
Independent: ability to work independently, taking initiative and doing what it takes to get the job done.
Structured: The ability to work in a structured manner. You will need to work according to specific checklists and develop the checklists yourself if they do not yet exist.
Persistent: A central characteristic that is also the flag of our team is persistence. In Housing Anywhere we believe that persistence is the driver of our growth and expansion.
Productive and motivated worker: We need someone who is a hard worker and is really passionate about Housing Anywhere. You will work 40 hours a week, but should Housing Anywhere grow much more rapidly than expected, we are looking for people who are willing to go the extra mile. It has happened that our interns had to work on a Sunday. Although this is not common, you should be prepared for it!
Energetic, optimistic and imaginative power: you need to motivate yourself and your colleagues, also in bad times.
Willing to do simple tasks: your title will be Customer Care & Product Improvement Specialist and you have quite some responsibility. However, on the other hand there is nobody ‘below’ you in our office. This means you also need to complete simple tasks, for example, preparing excel sheets, emptying the dishwasher etc. It won’t be your main job, but these things will be part of the job.
