Werken bij The Good Spice


Stagiaire Communicatie

Onderzoek doen en meteen in de praktijk brengen! Wij zijn op zoek naar een stagiaire voor een heel tof project.
Ben je analytisch maar ook hands-on, hou je van eten (en koken), werk je het liefst bij een bedrijf die een positieve impact maakt en zoek je een stage/onderzoek plek? 
Een beschrijving van de vacature vind je hieronder. De tekst is in het Engels, omdat we internationale studenten ook een kans willen geven om te solliciteren, maar als je jouw stage/onderzoek in het Nederlands wilt doen is dat alleen maar fijn voor ons! 

The Good Spice is looking for an intern – Come change the spice trade with us! 


The challenge: The Good Spice tells stories. About spices, about spice traders, about the supply chains and about food systems. We want to share recipes, engage people with spices and motivate them to make better choices and cook more often with spices. To engage people and make them our ambassadors, we want to create an online community where we can offer this engagement. 


The question is: would people participate in an online community like this? And what would be the best way to establish this community? What kind of content and exclusive offers do we share within this community?
Or in other words: how to build an online community for The Good Spice? 



  • What is the best target audience for an online community?

  • What is the best way to reach our target audience? 

  • Why would people want to spend time at our community? 

  • What makes our content unique and relevant? 

  • When is an online community successful? 

  • What would be a good name for the community?

  • What would be a good platform to host the community? 

  • What would be a good strategy to launch the community?
