The Housing First Europe Hub is recruiting an intern to support our coordination and communication work. We are a partnership of over 20 organisations, housing providers, governments, cities, foundations and researchers working together to end and prevent homelessness in Europe and beyond. 

Responsibilities

As an Intern, you will be responsible for:

  • Assisting the Coordinator in preparations for training sessions, conferences, webinars and other events with our partners;
  • Attending and reporting on events, briefings, and other relevant meetings;
  • Working directly with partners in various internal working groups and projects; 
  • Helping to organize events, provide support and follow up for online events such as webinars and meetings;
  • Helping to strengthen the Housing First Europe Hub’s partnership with regular coordination and cooperation;
  • Supporting social media activities and providing administrative support where needed.

Qualifications and Skills

The ideal candidate will have completed a Bachelors or Master’s degree in i.e., Social Policy, Political Science, International Relations, European Studies, Communications, or a related field. Additionally, the following items contribute to building a successful profile for this position:

  • Ability to work independently with minimal supervision;

  • Proficiency at Microsoft Office and social media platforms;
  • An interest in ending homelessness;
  • Ability to commit full-time – up to 38 hours per week;
