Posted on Thursday, October 27, 2022


To rid the world's oceans of plastic, we rely on supporters worldwide to spread our message, donate, apply for a job opening, or partner with us. This mission is not one we can do alone, and in this role, you help us improve how we attract and retain these supporters through various digital touchpoints.

“Working in the Communications team of The Ocean Cleanup never has a dull moment. There are plenty of meaningful and challenging projects to get involved with to make a measurable impact. As The Ocean Cleanup is doing something new, we cannot only look at best practices from the market; we also need to forge our own path. The constant flow of new updates from all projects within The Ocean Cleanup ensures we never run out of things to share with our supporters.” – Erika Träskvik, Sr. Digital Marketing & E-commerce Manager


As a digital marketing and communications intern, you will be involved in many new and ongoing projects to improve donor management, website experience, google ads, data analysis, newsletter strategy, and more. You will support the Sr. Digital Marketing and E-commerce Manager in executing these projects, getting valuable hands-on experience from a non-profit organization with a strong global following. The end goal is to have data-driven insights on how these different efforts impacted supporter numbers (conversion rate, churn rate, satisfaction score, etc.) and a recommendation on how to continue improving going further.


  • Ongoing Bachelor/Master’s degree, preferably in fields such as marketing or communications
  • Fluent in English
  • Previous experience in digital communication and/or marketing is a big plus
  • Experience with CRM- and CMS systems, Photoshop/InDesign, Google Analytics, Google AdWords, surveys, and/or social media advertisement are also a big plus but not a requirement

  • Great communicator and writer
  • The ability to see things from the “customer’s” side
  • Good negotiator: can align well with multiple stakeholders to get approval or input for projects
