International V-Label Assistant (Working Student) and Master Thesis (m/f/d)

Working Student, Part-time · Berlin Office or remotely

Role Summary
As an International V-Label Assistant you will support the International V-Label team in projects in the fields of sales, business development, marketing, quality management and coordination. Furthermore you will get the chance to write your master thesis about a topic in sales you agreed on with the international V-Label team. We see this role very much as a stepping stone position, where you will be learning all about the V-Label and building out your skills to enable you to grow into a permanent employee. You will be employed by ProVeg, but the work is done on behalf of V-Label GmbH.

About V-Label GmbH
V-Label GmbH in Switzerland, as the owner of the trademark rights, coordinates the international cooperation on the V-Label. The V-Label has been an internationally recognized and protected trademark since 1996. All decisions are made in cooperation with the vegetarian and vegan organizations involved (e.g. Swissveg, ProVeg e.V., VGÖ). Since most of the certification work takes place locally in the individual countries, the majority of the income remains locally, usually around 90 percent. This allows the control work to be carried out professionally and local organizations to be supported. A small part of the income goes to V-Label GmbH in Winterthur to maintain brand protection and to extend it to other countries and product categories. In addition, the company also co-finances the international advertising for the V-Label, operates the international website and databases and ensures through coordination that the controls are equally strict in all countries.

About us
ProVeg is an international food awareness organisation working to transform the global food system by replacing conventional animal products with plant-based and cultivated alternatives. ProVeg works with companies, governments, public institutions, medical professionals, the media, and the public to help the world transition to a society and economy that are less dependent on animal agriculture and more sustainable for humans, animals, and our planet.
