HR Intern


Every day, millions of people rely on WeTransfer to share their creative ideas. So, the work we do matters. Come and be a part of it.

About the internship 

We offer you an internship in which you will get the possibility to not only see what we do, but also experience what we do. You will be part of our dynamic HR team which consists of 4 people; our Recruiter, Learning & Development Manager, HR Manager and Head of HR and Legal. We are at the heart of our fast-paced international company based in Amsterdam.

You will be a great support to the team with your proactive and enthusiastic attitude. It's a great opportunity to really get stuck in with all areas of the department. There's lots to do with looking after and keeping more than 100 employees happy. We need you!

Knowledge of Dutch employment law is a pre.

What will you be doing?

There's lots of exciting things on our plate, and there's definitely never a boring day. You will work across the team to help us with a wide range of different duties. We like to give you an insight into what our team is working on and we will involve you by giving you responsibilities in different projects and events.

Your main tasks will be:

  • Keeping WeTransfer HR information, policies & guidelines up to date
  • Polishing & refining our on-boarding process
  • Owning the logistics of various L&D events and take initiative to organise them yourself
  • Researching data
  • Keeping personal files up-to-date
  • Assisting in performance management projects
  • Fresh pair of eyes on our day to day work to fine-tune any of the processes we have in place

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for someone with an eye for detail, who is organised, and who likes to take initiative. You're not afraid to ask for help, put on some groovy tunes, or speak your mind. Our team is dynamic and acts accordingly. You like to get your feet wet with a positive attitude. You're discrete and approachable. We also like chocolate.

Preferably you are in your 3rd or final year of an HR or Business education on HBO/BSc level.

Did we mention we like people who take initiative?

A little something about us

Since 2009 WeTransfer has been helping people share their creative ideas. We believe creative thinking changes the way we see the world, and so we develop tools to get people into their flow – that strange and beautiful state where everything comes together and the best work happens.

Today, 42 million people in 195 countries share ideas using WeTransfer. We are constantly developing new products, as well as rethinking what our current platforms can be, and can do.

Our founders originally worked in design, media and marketing; today we’re lucky to be working with the most creative minds in branding, sales, design, support and engineering.

We believe a diverse company is a better company. Whatever your story, we want to hear from you. Whatever your background, we’ll help you do your best work. 

Our Amsterdam office sits right by the river in the east of the city; our LA team are based in Venice. With lunch, snacks and great coffee, we know how to keep our teams properly fuelled.
