If you want to experience an unconventional, international working environment in which everyone is equal and empowered to take action, you will feel at home at Taste Before You Waste, located in the centre of Amsterdam (Plantage Doklaan 8, 1018 CM).
We are a registered foundation (Stichting) and you can receive official accreditation for your university or workplace if so desired.
Many students from UvA, VU, Amsterdam University College and more have already embarked on an internship with Taste Before You Waste, and it has been a valuable experience for all of us.
Our internships, just as our community, are all about co-creation and empowerment. We do not require you to have specific experience before starting your journey with us. If you do, in turn, have expertise that you would like to apply to our cause, we are always looking to improve our work-in-progress. What is important for us is that we learn and grow together with our interns.
As an intern, you attend weekly meetings with the other Core Team members, in which we reflect on the events of the week, the progress on all projects and plans for the coming week, as well as making collective decisions and strategise on the bigger picture of our organisation. Otherwise, you are free to either work at our office in Amsterdam or from home, unless your position requires otherwise.
Unfortunately we are not able to compensate interns financially for their time and energy. All we can offer are free weekly dinners and surplus groceries and being part of a conscious and engaged community of food heroes. Connected to that, we also understand that everyone has busy, complex lives and appreciate every commitment – so we are quite flexible in terms of working hours.
