Are you our next Editorial Intern?

Do you dream of being a writer? Do you like lots of creative freedom? Do you think you have what it takes to join DutchReview? We’re looking for an editorial intern that will kick some writing butt.

🚨 Applications open until July 17

First off, here are the details:


As an editorial intern you'll write articles every day that will be read by thousands: from the latest hotspots in Amsterdam or Rotterdam to the latest Dutch current affairs. You'll also assist with our massive social media presence.


September! Or possibly very late August.
Each internship period is six months.
You'll work four days a week, with between two and three days in our office.


Throughout the whole country, of course — we’re reviewing the Dutch! However, our physical office is in Leiden at the innovative hotspot PLNT.

I loved being a DutchReview intern. I got to write stories that interested me, learnt so much about SEO, and practiced running successful social media campaigns. I went on video shoots, reviewed amazing places, and got to pitch ideas to help DutchReview succeed. It gave my resume a huge boost, and I had a great time doing it!

FYI: we're only looking for the best

Is that you? Let's check...
  • You speak English at a native level, and it is absolutely and impeccably flawless
  • You've heard of Wordpress (and maybe even know what a CMS is!)
  • You follow, or followed, a relevant HBO or WO study (e.g. journalism, media & communications)
  • You like writing (obviously)
  • You are creative and full of ideas – we mean it when we say we really like independent thinkers!
  • You know an absurd amount about the Dutch, what makes them tick, and the life of expats in the Netherlands
  • You can work independently and deal with daily deadlines
  • You are fluent in social media and familiar with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, and Youtube
  • You have your own, reasonable-quality laptop to work on
  • You live within commuting distance to our HQ in the stunning university town of Leiden

Do I get paid?

You'll receive €400/month and we'll cover travel costs to and from the office.
There are also free events, access to prime hotspots and (occasionally) free cheese to review!

You got me, how do I apply?

Here are three easy steps

1. Tell us why you're the best

Prepare your CV and a motivation letter in true DutchReview tone (English, witty, informal). Then, submit your application below.

2. Show off your writing skills

If we're interested, congrats — the game is on! We want to see how you can write, so we may ask you to craft a short, draft article.

3. Let's get personal

We're a face-to-face kinda group.
If all goes well, you'll be heading over to Leiden for a personal meeting! 🤞
