Hello everyone and thank you for taking the time to read this!

I have recently been accepted to do a six-month sustainability consultancy internship with Metabolic in Amsterdam. Since seeing the CEO of the company give a talk in 2015, I have wanted to work for Metabolic. I know it seems a bit crazy to want to work for a company for two years but the work they are undertaking is so important and has been my inspiration whilst completing my degree!

Metabolic is working on projects that are driving forward circular economics and sustainable thinking in Amsterdam and further afield. The circular economy is a radical new model in systems thinking where we move away from using huge amounts of natural resources and creating toxic waste. For more information on Metabolic please go to https://www.metabolic.nl/.

Working at the heart of sustainable thinking in Europe, this internship is an incredible personal opportunity to learn about the circular economy. It is also a chance for me to contribute to the sustainable future of this planet and meet an amazing network of people. It is rare to find a job that you feel is your purpose but working for Metabolic really will be a truly fulfilling step I can take in my career. 

Thanks again for reading!
