Internship Description

Are you a creative globetrotter with a sense of communication, who can easily put yourself in the shoes of our customers? And are you also looking for an internship? Then read on!

Doing good is in our nature. When we see poverty or effects of climate change, we want to do something! And yet, many people do less than they would like to. That's why The Social Handshake makes doing good easy and more impactful!

With our giving platform, we offer various services for employers and their employees who want to make an impact. For example, with LoonGift, employees can support charities directly from their salary with tax benefits. Moreover, employers can match. For example, it costs someone 1 euro while a charity receives 3 euro. That's nice making an impact!

With thousands of users, through The Social Handshake, almost half a million euros are already going to charities such as UNICEF, Justdiggit or Free a Girl, and we have only just started. In this way, together with employers, employees and charities, we are making the world more sustainable and social. Will you join us?
