Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?

DRC is a non-profit organisation that works worldwide to help and protect refugees, internally displaced and other conflict-affected persons. DRC’s communications and fundraising department is looking for an intern who will have a main focus on supporting the communication about Danish Demining Group (DDG), the Humanitarian Mine Action and Armed Violence Reduction unit of DRC.
The DDG mission is to create a safe environment where people can live free from armed violence and remnants of conflict.

The AVR component of our programming addresses both physical and psycho-social aspects of the threats posed by small arms and ERW. DDG’s work is vital in helping refugees, internally displaced people (IDPs) and other communities return to their homes when the conflict has ended, allowing them to make use of the land they were forced to leave behind and facilitating development.

Hence the intern will get the opportunity to become acquainted with the work within an international NGO and how to communicate about it.
