The fine print

Greenpeace International internships are full-time positions (up to 40 hours per week). Our internships are meant for students or recent graduates who have completed their studies less than 1 year ago. This internship lasts six months. Interns receive a stipend of 800 euros per month.

As we are unable to help prospective interns obtain a visa, only EU nationals and those with a valid work permit for The Netherlands are asked to apply. Interns must take out health insurance before starting the internship.

Due to the volume of applicants we regret we are unable to respond to individual applications. If you have not been contacted within 2 weeks of the application closing date, we regret that you have not been short-listed for further consideration.
