CASE is seeking volunteers
CASE is seeking two high potential volunteers from the EU countries to support its work on policy-oriented research and development assistance projects in the areas of growth and trade, fiscal policy, labor and social policy, demography, innovation, energy and climate, with close guidance and backing of the CASE team.
Candidates should have a keen interest in the core subject areas and activities of CASE and, more generally, should be familiar with the work of European NGOs and research institutes working with the European civil society. An ideal CASE volunteer is an academically accomplished, open-minded and enthusiastic person, eager to apply their current skills and learn new ones, with good personal initiative and able to work in an international and multicultural environment.
The volunteers will be mainly involved in background research and preparation of project proposals, they will support the management of ongoing projects and manage some smaller projects on their own. They may also be involved in supporting the communications team. The volunteers will also be strongly encouraged to propose their own ideas, projects and undertake any research activity in line with CASE mission. Previous research, project management or communication experience is, however, not necessary, since appropriate training will be provided at the beginning and throughout the EVS experience.
Volunteering at CASE is focused on ‘hand-on activities’ which are structured so as to develop volunteers’ competences in various areas of CASE work while also taking into account volunteers’ preferences. Principle areas of development include:
- research and data analysis;
- project management;
Duration: 10-12 months between 1 October, 2018 and 31 December 2019.
Eligibility: age between 18 and 30. CASE is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applications from all applicants irrespective of the ethnicity, gender, socio-economic conditions, religion, or sexual or political orientation.
As a small contribution to living expenses is envisaged.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please send your CV to CASE: firstname.lastname@example.org by September 23, 2018.
