Jobs and internships


We are always interested in receiving demonstrations of interest in Namahn from talented designers. However, we are currently not recruiting. Watch this space.

Internships & theses

Namahn welcomes applications for internships. Interns participate in all Namahn activities and contribute to client projects. They receive an allowance to cover travel and work-related expenses within Belgium, but no salary. We cover one trip to and from Brussels.

We only take on recently graduated interns, or those in their final year. You are welcome to contact us in your final Master’s year.

Namahn’s focus is on the digital — please reflect this in your portfolio.

Belgian labour law makes it very difficult for us to take on interns that are not EU or EFTA citizens. Also, things are much easier if the internship is a constituent part of the curriculum of the academic institution.

We screen and select candidate interns as if they were candidate employees.

Namahn expects non-Dutch speaking interns to spend a considerable amount of time learning Dutch. Namahn provides the means to do so.

We welcome residencies by academics for sabbaticals or final-paper/PhD work. For the time being, we cannot offer financial support.
