About TEDxAMSTERDAM

In 2009, TEDxAmsterdam hosted the very first TEDx-event in the Netherlands and Europe. Ever since, TEDxAmsterdam has become much more than a conference. We provide a stage for inspiration under TED’s international banner of “ideas worth spreading”. More than that, we are an active community and a movement for positive change.

Each year, a large group of volunteers dedicate their time and energy to set up events and build our community, acting as personal ambassadors for change and innovation. TEDxAmsterdam events are not subsidised and are run on the enthusiasm of our partners, sponsors and volunteers.

About the Award Team

In 2019, the Award Programme was developed as a part of TEDxAmsterdam. The goal of the Award Programme is to be a platform that serves as a springboard for ideas that can change  the world for the better. We want to move “ideas worth spreading” into “ideas worth doing”. This year, the first Award Programme will go live. 

What do we need: 

We are currently looking for an experienced CONTENT MANAGER and an ALLROUND TEAM MEMBER WITH AN INTEREST IN DESIGN to help us take the first edition of the TEDxAmsterdam Awards to the highest level. As a Content Manager, you will be co-responsible for the content on our communication channels, and will ensure that our channels are always up to date and relevant. As a Team Member, you will be co-responsible for the creation of the Award Programme, design the setup, help in the creation of the organisational structure and documentation, source participants, partners and sponsors, and work on associated events.
