Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
Crisis Group publishes around 60 reports and briefings annually, and some 30 full translations (English, French, Spanish, Arabic and other languages).
We are seeking a intern to volunteer full-time at the Brussels headquarters for a suggested period of six months starting 16 August 2016, assisting with Crisis Group's publications. The volunteer internship will suit a broad range of candidates, including those with interests and experience in some combination of the following: international relations, conflict studies, print and online publication.
Formatting, publication and dissemination of Crisis Group reports and briefings;
Updating the website; and
Coordinating with our 25 field and advocacy offices on publication issues and providing general administrative support.
Though administrative tasks form a part of the volunteer internship, there are opportunities to assist other departments in Brussels (typically research and/or communications), take part in staff and intern briefings and our staff development program. The internship will give the incumbent a good understanding of how an international organisation works.
