Intern front office

Interested in working at Karel V?

Calm and clear are terms that describe you. During your Front Office internship, you will handle a variety of responsibilities. Checking someone in in English, explaining the route in German or taking a special request in Dutch. Together with the team, you will be the business card. A nine-to-five job is not something that suits you, you are more into diversity!
