The purpose of a digital marketing internship

Having an internship is highly valuable for both you and the Ricco Mortensen Foundation. We will benefit from your unique skills in order to maintain and run our activities while gaining a fresh set of eyes with which to see things from a new perspective.

In essence, the Ricco Mortensen Foundation is a non-profit educational organisation dedicated to teaching as many entrepreneurs worldwide as possible how to succeed in becoming online entrepreneurs. The purpose is to give entrepreneurs a life full of freedom, inspiration and prosperity while doing meaningful work in the world and having fun in the process.

We would like to show you how a successful online business works, how it operates, and how to utilise this knowledge in your career, or for your own online business.

Our team is creative and innovative – forever striving to evolve. Although we are a small organisation, we work with the best and brightest people from every corner of the world. Our perspective is truly global.

Your role as a digital marketing intern

As an intern, you will be a leading member of one of our campaigns. You will administer, run and play an integral role in putting a particular campaign together while joining in on all the marketing efforts necessary. In doing so, you will be working closely with our team.

Your workplace in the Mediterranean

We’re a team of digital nomads living and working from Denmark, USA, England, Portugal, Cyprus while others live in Malta, where our courses and educational programmes take place.

Ricco and a few of our team members live permanently in Malta. During your internship, you will be posted in Malta and work with the team here.

Work locations may vary depending upon meetings and other events. You will be notified of these events and locations in advance and can take part if interested.

The expectations of you as an intern

You should either be in the process of or have a relevant education in marketing or entrepreneurship – or simply be self-taught and a bit of a nerd (in a good way) at what you do.

You are independent, curious and self-motivated and fluent in English in both speaking and writing. The internship is full-time, unpaid (you can receive a monthly grant from the European Union) and the duration is 2 to 12 months.

Receive a grant for your stay abroad

We participate in the European exchange programme Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs. It is a cross-border exchange programme which gives new entrepreneurs the chance to learn from experienced entrepreneurs running small businesses in other EU countries and other participating countries.

As an EU citizen, you can receive a €720 monthly grant from the EU entrepreneurial exchange program. You can receive the grant if you are a new entrepreneur, seriously planning to set up your own business or one who has already started a business within the last three years.

We will help you find good and affordable accommodation in Malta. Monthly furnished rentals including all utilities are available from €600 and up. If you’d like to share an apartment you can get it around half the cost.

You will have to pay the rent and expenses yourself. Living expenses in Malta are low compared to most other EU countries.
