Internship - Global HR Technology – September 2023


HEINEKEN is looking for you!

Every day we work with pride on our great products that you have certainly had in your hand at a party, during a work meeting or at home on the couch. HEINEKEN is much more than just beer. What about brands like Cristal Clear, Royal Club, Heineken 0.0, Amstel Radler and Birra Moretti. We actively work to create a pleasant work environment where everyone feels respected and has equal opportunities. Your personality, knowledge and skills are the success of our organization.

The Internship

HEINEKEN is on a journey to become the best-connected brewery in the world. This means we should also internally connect with our employees to win in the markets. We have made a big step forward by successfully implementing SAP SuccessFactors as core employee platform in all our markets worldwide. We created one way of working for all People processes across the entire globe! Meanwhile, the People function continuously evolves, and we are continuing to bring new features and updates to SAP SuccessFactors and other new technologies. We are close to all our markets and actively engage with each of them on a regular basis for support and to deploy new technology. In addition, we also manage our internal stakeholders (management, business process owners, IT) and suppliers. As Project Management intern, you will contribute to our success by ensuring smooth collaboration within the team and its most important stakeholders.


The department

The Global Solutions & Support team is responsible for supporting, maintaining, and deploying HR technology across all HEINEKEN markets worldwide. We have a multidisciplinary team that works on products like Support, SAP SuccessFactors, ServiceNow and Reporting & Analytics. You will work together with these colleagues on a day-to-day basis. We also interact with different Centres of Excellence in the Global People department in Amsterdam, such as Talent Acquisition or Talent Management. We are a multinational team with a great drive to continuously improve our HR technology ecosystem but also likes to socialise over a beer at the end of the week!
