Internship : FoodWIN is looking for a motivated event manager

Who is FoodWIN?

Join a team of young and passionate professionals dedicated to the fight against food waste. FoodWIN supports cities and canteens who are motivated to take action to tackle food waste. We also promote innovation and entrepreneurship along the food chain and coordinate the Food Waste Alliance, a partnership with state-of-the-art food waste solutions. 

Your mission

This year, we organise the 2nd edition of the Food Waste Fest (Have a look at the first edition’s summary). Key players of the Belgian food chain and experts in fighting food waste will come together for a day of inspiration, collaboration, and learning, to kick-start and strengthen the joint food waste fight. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone motivated in fighting food waste to learn out of the best Belgium experts. The organisation of this event is also an opportunity for you to take responsibility and gain professional skills among a trusting team.

For your mission, you will be in charge of supporting the organisation of the entire event. This in collaboration with one team member, who will support you through the process. From choosing the venue to organising the day and its activities, your task is to let the Food Waste Fest run smoothly. Therefore, we are looking for someone who is social, organised, who works autonomously and who is creative. Mastering Dutch and English is essential (French is a plus).

If you fit this description, if fighting food waste really drives you, if you are ready to invest yourself and want responsibilities in a social organisation, here is what we expect from you :

  • Establishing contact with partners and sponsors
  • Look for sponsors
  • Communicate about the event
  • Help us make the event fun and attractive
  • Make sure the Food Waste Fest is a success
  • Be an active team member

Additional information :

  • We cannot offer financial compensation (but check the Erasmus+ program and your local government!). 
  • The compensation of commuting is possible.
  • At least 2 months, minimum 60% FTE (Full Time Equivalent)
  • We give a free dumpster dive course

FoodWIN is a team of bright and wonderful people, a team of friends. If you think you’re a match with us, don’t swipe right but send us your CV with a short introduction of yourself stating why you want to join our team and how you could be an asset for us.
