About the Internship Programme

Interns are invaluable to us, as they support our programmes with a great deal of enthusiasm and dedication. In turn, we aim to provide our interns with a useful learning experience for professional development. In addition to on-the-job learning about the programme they intern with, interns will gain an overview of the workings of our organisation and network as a whole. We also provide a series of short workshops over the duration of the internship, on topics ranging from the theoretical to the practical.

Each intern, together with their supervisor, sets personal learning goals which will be monitored throughout the internship.

For the first half of 2017, we are looking for three (3) interns: one (1) who will focus on action learning and communications, and two (2) who will focus on knowledge management and trainings.

Internship 1. Focus on action learning and communications

Tasks will include, among others

1. Write a weekly briefing/ news digest for the Secretariat and network on selected topics relevant to our work

2. Support the compiling and presentation of information for the Regional Update to be sent once every two weeks

3. Update online communities

4. Support in developing and editing content (blogs, articles, meeting reports)

5. Provide logistical and practical support in the preparation of events or meetings

6. Attend and report on relevant events

7. Liaise with the communications team around the events

8. Liaise with the Secretariat colleagues and members in relation to their involvement in the above mentioned events

Internship 2. Focus on knowledge management and trainings

Tasks will include, among others

1. Assist in the development of the design and of the modules for a regional training workshop

3. Attend and report on relevant events

4. Liaise with the communications team around the events

5. Liaise with the Secretariat colleagues and members in relation to their involvement in the above mentioned events

6. Both internships will involve general tasks

Both internships will involve some general office support beyond the assigned programme tasks, as need arises, but daily organisational tasks will be kept to a minimum.
