What we stand for
Diversity and inclusion is deeply embedded in our mission to promote dialogue, mutual understanding and cooperation across the Mediterranean. We believe that stronger institutions and communities are created when people of every origin, ethnicity, gender, age and background are accepted, valued and empowered. We uphold those values in cooperation with our partners and stakeholders, as well as at workplace. This is part of our ongoing efforts to create a meaningful change.
Our mission is enhanced when our workforce reflects the diversity of the Mediterranean region. We pride ourselves on our diverse team, which provides a variety of perspectives and backgrounds and ensures creativity, quality and impact of our work.
We offer paid one-year traineeships to young people with higher degrees from the countries in the Euro-Mediterranean region to support our work and help us deliver our mission. We believe that young people have a vital role to play in promoting social change, innovation, dialogue and positive engagement of communities across the region, founded on culture of mutual trust, tolerance, understanding and respect.
The Mediterranean Traineeship program has two primary objectives:
- Put into practice knowledge acquired during studies, particularly in their specific areas of competence (Euro-Mediterranean policies, Arab world, gender, socio-economic and human development, culture and civil society, project management, communication).
- Empower, mentor and equip young graduates with practical skills and experience of the day-to-day work of an organisation working in the field of Euro-Mediterranean relations.
We encourage you to apply and on a unique experience.Read about the program View open positions
