The intern will be forming part of the OBESSU Secretariat team, being fully immersed in our daily work. The tasks related to project cycle management (through all stages – conception, proposal preparation, implementation and evaluation) will constitute about 70% of the work time. These will include:

- Project conceptualisation and design

  • Cooperation in project application writing
  • Project implementation
  • Support in preparatory phase (logistics, managing calls for teams and participants)
  • Active support during events (trainings, seminars etc.)
  • Budget administration (includes administrative work on cost registration and reimbursement)
  • If possible – educational tasks (design and implementation of educational activities)

- Project reporting

  • Gathering an analysing evaluation inputs
  • Support in preparing formal report for the donors
  • Communication with project stakeholders

The other 30% will be defined jointly with the intern, so that area of their interest can be covered. This may include working on external communication, office administration, research tasks and others, however, we are strongly interested in an intern with will to work on our advocacy and policy.
