Are you a young graduate? Are you curious to learn more about the work of a development cooperation section in a diplomatic mission and better understand how the EU contributes to sustainable and inclusive development in Cambodia?
What do we offer?
A paid six-month traineeship for a young graduate within the Cooperation Section of the EU Delegation to Cambodia in Phnom Penh.
We are an international team of around 20 people in the section (around 40 overall in the Delegation), originating mainly from Europe, as well as Cambodia. Our global objective, as set out in the EU's instrument for development cooperation, is to contribute to the reduction and, in the long-term, eradication of poverty in the country. We do this through development cooperation programmes and projects designed to accelerate Cambodia's progress towards meeting the Sustainable Development Goals. To enhance the impact of our work and ensure sustainable results, we work in close collaboration with the national and sub-national authorities, the Cambodian civil society and the private sector. In the same vein, we also ensure strong coordination with European and other development partners, present in the country.
The foreseen starting date is 1 December 2018.
