Company description:

Today’s changing business reality creates a multitude of cultural and commercial opportunities that can longer be addressed with customary methods. Existential questions compel companies to reconsider how they can create value for their markets and their own organization alike. Merluno helps organizations reveal their true market potential and enables them to take action from the heart of their mission.

We are a Belgian company, working for customers on (inter)national missions. Organizational models such as ‘Teal Organizations’ (Frédéric Laloux) and ‘Holacracy,’ inspired us to design our company into a flat, self-managed organization with clear purpose, tools, and structure. We believe in the magical power of people and their organizations, which is why we connect them to their power and environment. The same is true in our own team of multilingual professionals and our ecosystem of specialized partnerships. Merluno’s range of competences stretches from business strategy, over leadership coaching, to data science. Our dynamic mix of young and experienced professionals allows for more impact, better market orientation, and stronger structures, while our customers are likewise active in a broad and ever-expanding range of segments: life sciences, pharmaceuticals, technology, ICT, industry, supply chain management, or law.

The traineeship will start in the first months of 2020.
