We welcome apprentices from all over Europe interested in green and social innovation.
I’ve truly enjoyed my internship at Synge both on professional and personal level. I've operated mostly on the marketing area, supported from professions from whom I’ve learned crucial skills. Not only, I was given an insight into sustainability sourcing, business development and hospitality. Other than work, Synge was a disrupting life experience: I had the opportunity to do amazing trips across Europe and at the same time living in a remote village in the French countryside; also I’ve met great people, among which great work connection, others pioneering guide in my professional career and others friends for life.

My internship at Synge has offered me a lot of new possibilities. Synge tries to achieve greater things and even if some missions fail, there’s always a great new idea waiting to be realized. As an intern I learned new skills as a business development consultant and not only that but I also got an insight into sourcing, marketing and hospitality. In Synge you get the possibility to meet a lot of new people and make great connections. We got to host people from around Europe, everyone from a different company, it was a one in a lifetime experience to hear them not only talk about business, but also about their youth and travels around the world. Synge has changed my view on work as it’s never as predictable as one might think.
My internship at Synge has been an incredible experience allowing me to travel across Europe, meet the executives from Sony, Lime, Oatly, Ikea and discuss their views on sustainability together with philosophers, artists and even an organic farmer! Jan, Synge's CEO, is a great mentor and dedicated to transoforming business and education models to meet the current social and enviromental challenges. Thanks to Synge I got to visit international trade fairs, ride an electrical surfboard on the sea between Denmark and Sweden, visit Frankfurt by night on a LIME scooter, do wine-tasting in Burgundy and visit historical monument in every city I traveled to... I met many truly inspiring people that helped me think and shape my career as a businesswoman differently. At the end of my internship Synge offered me a part time job until the completion of my university studies
I did both internship and master thesis at Synge. I wanted to see how I, as a designer, could contribute to social business creation. The outcome was so much more than that. I learned about the importance of creative thinking in the area of business. I also learned how the cross- disciplinary teamwork can shapes the company development but also one's personality and professionalism. That is why my internship was an experience that I truly value both on personal and professional level
I joined Synge as I wanted to have a part time work during my studies. Not only did I get the job but I also got to co-define the actual tasks based on my interest and inclinations. I am currently working on the battery 2nd life solutions for LIME electric scooters. I got to visit the largest battery fair and discuss the possible technical solutions with well-established companies and also upcoming innovative start-ups. I have traveled across Europe, worked with my hands at Synge properties in France and joined an extraordinary cross–disciplinary holistic work-away that ended up with a monastery visit (Taizé). If you want a great learning experience on all levels then Synge is the place!
