Internships

Internships at ICMPD provide an opportunity for students and recent graduates to obtain hands-on experience working in an international setting, and across a broad range of thematic areas. 

As an international organisation, we believe that it is vital to invest directly in developing the skills and knowledge of future experts in the field of migration. 

To that end, we welcome speculative applications from those pursuing (or having recently obtained) an undergraduate or post-graduate degree, or additionally from young professionals looking to switch careers. ICMPD has also worked with a number of academic institutions to provide Erasmus-based internships and work experience during the course of study. Should you wish to submit such an application, please register via the ICMPD Expert Roster.

In addition, please see below for all internships currently available with ICMPD. Should you wish to apply directly, please follow the instructions detailed in the vacancy. 

 

Available Internships

Project Overview:

ICMPD is inviting all interested candidates to apply for the Research and Communication Intern position for the European Union Global Diaspora Facility (EUDiF).

EUDiF is the first-ever global effort aiming to strengthen collaboration and engagement between diaspora development organisations, countries of origin and the European Union (EU). The Facility, which runs from June 2019 until December 2022, is funded by the EU and implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD).

EUDiF consists of four interlinking components:

  • Research and knowledge management activities, including a global mapping of diaspora engagement and thematic case studies;
  • Targeted capacity development activities for countries of origin and diaspora organisations;
  • Outreach, consultations and meetings with diaspora organisations in Europe, EU partner countries and EU Member States;
  • Mobilisation of diaspora experts for development projects.

Together, these activities will generate a consolidated knowledge base on diaspora engagement practices, address the capacity development needs and priorities of governments and diaspora organisations, strengthen and expand pre-existing networks, formalise diaspora-EU interaction and promote diaspora as development actors.

Please note that this position is subject to approval and availability of project funding.

Job Description:

The intern provides support to the work of the EUDiF team based in ICMPD’s Brussels mission in Belgium, under the direct supervision of the Head of Programme Global Initiatives and Senior Project Manager that monitor, evaluate, guide and provide professional development.

The Internship is conceived as a full-time entry-level short-term opportunity for people interested in preparing for a career in co-development and/or international project management.

The EUDiF Internship Programme relies on a win-win approach.

On one hand, young students and professionals from the diaspora will gain direct and unique hands-on experience in the implementation of this innovative EU-funded project on diaspora engagement.

On the other hand, the EUDiF team will benefit from the knowledge and personal experience of the interns to support project activities.

Ultimately, the Internship Programme also contributes to mainstream diaspora expertise into development projects and to invest into the education and professional development of highly-skilled youth diaspora members.
