Business Development Traineeship

Business Development Traineeship – January 2022

What to expect at Merluno? 

Become a Junior Business Developer and join our community. As such, you will work on different client projects, improve your skills and business knowledge, and develop into a Merluno consultant.


We invite you to an intensive traineeship in Business Development through which you will learn to be more (self)conscious, open, assertive, critical, persistent, and entrepreneurial in creating and seizing opportunities. Models, tools, structure, training and attention will be given to you. The purpose-first culture of Merluno is built on our core values – warm, pure, resilient, daring – and our company provides a safe environment for these to blossom. Your on-the-job development will help you generate insights for your customers at market-level, business-level and people-level.


We offer:

  • Employment in an inspired company with a strong culture of inclusive entrepreneurship
  • A well-balanced salary package
  • Training and opportunities for personal development on intellectual, emotional, economical, and spiritual level
  • A warm meeting-place within reach to connect, work and learn from colleagues, business partners and customers



  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree. Preferred areas: business, economics, marketing, or communication
  • Fluency in Dutch and French & professional working proficiency in English
  • Versatile and coachable attitude: committed to personal growth, replacing fear of the unknown with curiosity, willing to make your hands dirty, self-reflexive and a love of learning – and unlearning
  • Passionate about entrepreneurship and innovation: combining commercial flair with strategic thinking


Company description:

Today’s changing business reality creates a multitude of cultural and commercial opportunities that can no longer be addressed with common methods. Existential questions compel companies to reconsider why they do things and how they can create value for their markets; their own organization; society; and the environment. Connectivity, artificial intelligence and automation support decision making in a highly competitive landscape, yet innovation without a ‘customer first’ approach seems to disappear. At the same time, more people are longing for a more ‘truthful’ life next to a ‘successful’ life. At Merluno we are very aware of this naturally present potential of people and the strength of human connection. It is why we exist.

Inspired by our purpose – natural growth through magic connection – we help organizations reveal their true market potential and we enable them to take action from the heart of their mission. As a Belgian company, we work for customers on (inter)national missions. We believe in our dynamic mix of young and experienced professionals, allowing our customers more impact, better market orientation, and stronger structures. Our customers are in a broad and ever-expanding range of segments: technology, ICT, industry, supply chain management, life sciences, pharmaceuticals, or law.

Our next traineeship is scheduled for January 2022.
