Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
About the Organization:
The International Crisis Group is an independent organisation working to prevent wars and shape policies that will build a more peaceful world. Crisis Group has some 120 staff members on five continents, composed of around 40 nationalities. Employment at Crisis Group provides challenging and intellectually stimulating opportunities whether based in the field or in one of our advocacy offices.
The International Crisis Group's Central Africa Project is looking for a voluntary intern to assist its Project Director, Deputy Project Director and Analysts in their daily activities. This is a desk-based position that requires a natural flair for political conflict analysis, flexibility, intelligence and hard work, and offers an excellent opportunity for someone to learn about conflict analysis and advocacy work and gain valuable experience in a high-profile international NGO. The voluntary internship would suit a bilingual English/French candidate with a recent undergraduate or graduate degree in international relations, political science or related fields, seeking to gain experience in a fast-paced, international NGO working to prevent war and shape peace worldwide. We are looking for someone to start by December 2020 (or earlier if possible) for six months, who will be home-based at first and once Covid-19 measures permit it, at the organisation's Nairobi office.
