The purpose of the internship positions is to support young people with the potential to make a lasting contribution to Ethiopia’s development to make a great start to their professional career. The placement will focus on developing knowledge and experience in specific parts of our portfolio and learning about the broader development sector upon completion of the placement. We are launching an internship programme because:
- We want to lead by example. Lack of work experience is a key challenge young graduates face as they enter the workforce. By offering internships – which are critical paths to bridge this transition – British Embassy Ethiopia hopes to play an exemplary role to other organisations in the sector. We plan to lead by example in communicating the importance of corporate social responsibility in contributing to youth skills and employability.
- We want to give space for development of skills and aim to equip entry-level work force with proper competency skills. British Embassy Ethiopia offers a chance of working in a diversified and dynamic context and aims to embed work-relevant skills, information and experience by opening opportunities to support teams within and cross office activities.
- We want our work to benefit from young people’s insights and we want to infuse our embassy with insights, energy, out of the box thinking of Ethiopian youth, as we strive to make our programmes more effective and relevant to youth.
