THE PROGRAM EXPLAINED

As Young Digital Innovator you will be placed at your first company for a six-month period. After six months, you move on to your second company. Current YDI’ers are working at clients such as Vivat, Friesland Campina and Unilever. We ensure a mutual click between both parties, so you don’t have to worry about that. Once started, you will work at the client for 4 days a week. During these days you will facilitate and guide the team in its digital transformation. On Fridays you’ll come back to the Talent Institute and focus on personal development. Every other week there will be a workshop to make sure you stay on the top of your game. Topics include public speaking, corporate structure and (online) validation.

The job is really demanding and hectic, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Right from the start I was in charge of online advertising, optimising the website and stimulating growth. On fridays we have dedicated training sessions to stay up to date. Jeroen
