Within the EU Corporate Affairs team in Brussels, we are looking to appoint a new Corporate Affairs Intern (6 months internship, VDAB contract).

Duties, Responsibilities and Tasks

Imperial Brands is offering a Corporate Affairs internship in the Brussels Office.

  • Undertaking research into regulatory issues across Europe
  • Updating and checking European stakeholder mapping
