positions for internships are currently filled until the End of March 2017. We
can therefore only consider applications for the period starting from July 2017. Thank you for your understanding.
The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Namibia offers internships to
applicants with a BA (or higher) degree in Social Sciences, Economics,
International Law, African Studies and Development Studies. Applicants should
be fluent in spoken and written English.
In our experience the duration of an internship of added
value to yourself and FES should be no less than eight weeks.
We expect interns to assist our team in the following
- Organisation of and assistance with public
dialogues and workshops/seminars
- Assistance with report writing
- Contribution to analytical and strategic
The FES Namibia is not in the position to offer any
monetary compensation for travel expenses (e.g. flight ticket, visa fees). The
responsibility to apply for a Namibian visa lies with the intern. The
Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung regrets that interns cannot be remunerated. All
expenses, including travel, board and lodging, remain the responsibility of the
applicant. FES does not accept responsibility for any claims resulting from accidents,
damages and/ or losses incurred to interns for the duration of their internship.
We are aware that these are not very attractive conditions, but we unfortunately
have no authority to change the situation. We can, however, vouch for the
quality of experience.
Applications should include:
- Motivation letter
- CV, possibly with letters of recommendation
- Dates of availability
Applications by Namibian citizens are welcome.
