Who you are


Please note that this is a non-paid academic internship for students looking to complete the Program requirements.

The internship will commence in September – October with a minimum of 12 weeks.


You love the mix of both strategic and creative thinking and turning communication trends into practice.

You feel affinity with creating engaging communication and working with media relations and stakeholder management.

You are eager to know more about and live the IKEA culture and values.

And no, you don’t need to live in a fully IKEA decorated home or know the difference between a KALLAX and BILLY, but you do have an interest in Life at Home and you are eager to discover how we contribute to society.


You are studying Public relations or Communications and are looking for an internship of minimum 12 weeks.


In this internship you will get in touch with (local) media contacts, crisis communication, leading in change as well as developing creative PR approaches and working with strategic communication and/or business leadership + agencies management.


You are native Dutch or French speaking and fluent in the other language. This means that you feel comfortable speaking the other language even if it’s not perfect and you can follow meetings in both. And you have a strong knowledge of English.


Your responsibilities


You will:


- Analyze & re-work the LinkedIn strategy for IKEA Belgium and the CEO.

- Help organize corporate and/or commercial PR events: from developing assets (invite, press list, speeches,…) to helping out for the build-up (no IKEA internship is complete without assembling IKEA furniture) and hosting on the day itself.

- Write corporate and commercial PR press releases.

- Identify social media trends & introduce us to (your) favorite Belgian lifestyle content creators for possible collabs.

- Identify best practices/interesting PR cases from competitors.

- Support in everyday activities: from meetings with agencies, the team and internal stakeholders to attending press interviews and shootings.


This role is located in Zaventem. Remote working from home 1 to 2 days can be an option based on the number of working days/week during the internship but will always need to be planned according to the needs, so days can differ for each week.




Our team is the voice of IKEA. We use words, pictures and videos to tell the story about IKEA, to build our brand and inspire people with our offer. We bounce ideas back and forth, we challenge each other and we are crazy passionate about communication. Of course we’re also the ones who make sure to keep all our fellow co-workers informed, engaged and connected in a constantly changing business environment.
