The role

As a Marketing and Communications Intern you will have the opportunity to help us tell the story of Rockstart and the passionate founders we invest in.  We are looking for an intern that is excited about digital marketing and communications and who loves to create content. Our Marketing and Communications team is small , which means you’ll get a chance to work on a lot of different tasks: writing blog posts, creating newsletters and social media content, managing our website, managing analytics and reporting, all while working closely with the marketing and communications manager and other Rockstart teams.

Although part of your week will be consistent and will allow you to dive into and improve on specific aspects of digital marketing and communications, the rest is usually very diverse and will enable you to try out a lot of different communications channels and methods. Being a Marketing and Communications Intern at Rockstart requires flexibility and a diverse set of skills from your side, but comes with a lot of freedom and great learning opportunities. All of these while working closely with the Head of marketing and Communications, Europe and Latam.

You will also have the opportunity to work alongside our experienced international team (covering the European and LatAm markets), committed to delivering an excellent level of service to all, dealing with requests for information, queries and problems in an efficient and friendly manner.
