Expat Club - Xross Global Group
Social Media, Events Management, Membership Development
Expat Club is a large network of thousands of expats in Brussels (see www.expatclub.org). Since 2013 we have been organising countless local events and many daytrips to various locations in Belgium and surrounding countries. We travel from Amsterdam to Paris, and from Cologne to London, and everything in between. We also visit places like Mont Saint Michel, the Oktoberfest and Switzerland.
Expat Club is growing fast and has set ambitious goals to become the top-of-mind international community of Brussels. We professionally organise many events and trips that are for a diverse group of expats. We believe that age, nationality, career path or marital status are less important than creating shared experiences. Doing fun and interesting things or visiting beautiful, fascinating or very unique places (e.g. Tesla factory, nuclear power plant) while getting to know new friends is what we're all about. That is why we always arrange professional guides, organise group lunches, facilitate private entrees or rooms, and travel with very comfortable coaches.
Expat Club is searching for an intern who (m/f) would like to develop his/her skills in online marketing & social media, events management and community management. You like meeting people and have a keen interest in event management for an international community. The internship can start in September, is for minimal 3,5 months, and minimal 32 hours per week + 1-2 events/trips per week. The internship is unpaid, but we offer you to join on many trips!.
