Marketing and Communications Intern

Closing the Loop is a Dutch social enterprise that makes mobile phone use circular for companies and governments. We encourage reuse of mobile phones and ensure that broken phones from developing countries are recycled in a responsible manner. This is good for people, the environment, climate and the economy. With this approach we won the Circular Award 2018. 

Closing the Loop is growing rapidly. Recently we started a partnership with Samsung and T-Mobile to realise our mission: a waste-free telecom sector. But we want and need more to reach this, and therefore we need you!
