Twice a year, when new trainees join EUROCLIO, they are given three induction days where they learn more about how EUROCLIO works and the various projects or areas of work that they can be involved with during their time here.
EUROCLIO is now accepting applications for the next round of trainees to join the Secretariat in The Hague from February-July 2018. The traineeship offers the opportunity to gain valuable insights into the inner-workings of an international NGO, while developing a wealth of practical skills.
As a trainee, you will be in contact with a variety of different institutions, donors, funding organisations, and international associations. Your tasks will include communicating with members and partners, participating in the various stages of project development and execution, website management, contributing to the ongoing development of transnational source collections and historical content, and all aspects of office and event management.
University students and recent graduates of all nationalities are encouraged to apply, especially those with a background in history, history education, and/or international relations/cooperation. The deadline for applications is 5 November 2017. Those interested should send their CV and a short motivation letter to Judith Geerling.
EUROCLIO offers university students in the final stage of their University Bachelor degree or in their Master degree the opportunity to enrich their knowledge with the practical experience of working for an International NGO in the field of History Education.
As a trainee, you will learn all about the world of an International NGO. You will get in touch with different institutions, donors, funding organs, and international associations and learn about the importance of networking, organising and reporting. Your tasks will include communication with members and partners, public announcements, fundraising and all aspects of event management. It is also possible to do a research traineeship.
For our Spring/Summer traineeships (February 2016 – July/August 2016) we are looking for dedicated students that have:
• An interest in History, History Education and International Cooperation;
• Skills in Standard Microsoft Office Applications;
• Flexibility, strong motivation and the capability to work independently;
• Fluency in written and spoken English, which is the working language at the Secretariat. Knowledge of any other language is an advantage.
