Addameer‘s Internship Programme provides an opportunity for individuals to gain practical experience by working on the ground with a human rights organization. Addameer chooses applicants who will most benefit from the experience as well as those who can contribute the most to the organization, based on their skills and interests and Addameer‘s current needs. Addameer principally recruits interns to work in its Advocacy Department. Internships are full-time and run for a period of three months. Internships are voluntary (unpaid), which means that those accepted for an internship will have to cover their own expenses associated with the program.
Intern duties in Addameer‘s Advocacy Department include researching legal and factual issues, drafting various releases, assisting in international advocacy activities, field trips, and administrative tasks. Interns should expect a combination of challenging and routine tasks. Familiarity with the history of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict is essential. Knowledge of international human rights, humanitarian law, and international criminal law is highly desirable. The working languages of Addameer are Arabic and English. Applicants must be fluent in written and spoken English. Knowledge of Arabic is helpful, but not required. Computer literacy and familiarity with word-processing programs are essential.
Applicants must submit, in three separate attachments, a cover letter, current CV, an unedited writing sample, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate the dates of your envisaged internship. It is recommended to submit the application at least three months before the suggested starting date of the internship. Addameer strives to inform selected candidates of the decision with regard to their application at least two months before the requested starting date of the internship. Kindly note that due to a large number of applications received, only selected candidates will be contacted further by Addameer.
Interns are required to comply with Addameer's policy and rules relating to health and safety, cultural diversity, equal opportunities and security regulations.
