  • Position
  • Programme Assistant Africa-Europe Foundation

    The Africa-Europe Foundation (AEF) is an entity co-founded by Friends of Europe and the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, in partnership with the African Climate Foundation and the ONE Campaign and with a multitude of stakeholders from civil society, business, policymaking and the youth sector across Africa and Europe. The purpose of the Africa-Europe Foundation is to facilitate multi-stakeholder dialogue, catalyse partnerships and unlock new opportunities that can transform Africa-Europe relations into action. We are recruiting a Programme Assistant (traineeship) to provide support and assistance for a range of tasks, activities and events related to the Africa-Europe Foundation’s work. The AEF focusses on a set of priority thematic pillars to enhance cooperation between both continents in the face of the ongoing climate emergency and to ensure a shared and prosperous future for communities across both shores of the Mediterranean. These include, sustainable energy and agri-food systems, climate adaptation, health, digital economy and connectivity, including cross-cutting issues such as youth, gender, education, mobility, the involvement of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMES), and governance. This is a great opportunity not only to understand the workings of both Friends of Europe as an independent, influential think tank and the Africa-Europe Foundation as the platform of platforms for Africa-Europe relations but also to develop your skills and experience. You will gain an understanding of multiple policy areas and have an opportunity for self-development and learning – as well as a chance to contribute to the dissemination of information through a variety of activities (such as debates, working groups and publications).
