3 Great Working Opportunities with the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD)


Junior Operations Support Officer

This is a temporary position of ten months to fill a period of maternity leave, and is located in Vienna. The International Centre for Migration Policy Development works to evaluate and create the most effective strategies for immigration worldwide. The Junior Operations Support Officer works within this system, essentially functioning as a backbone to their department and keeping things running at maximum efficiency. The salary is unspecified but is described as being generous. To be eligible candidates are generally required to have an undergraduate degree in a related business discipline, though a mix of education and experience will be considered. The deadline for applications is February 21, though because the position is in dire need of filling a candidate may be selected before this date.

Migration and Mobility Dialogue (MMD) Internship

A Brussels-based internship, the MMD internship is a five month position that offers a wealth of experience. The matter of migration between Europe and Africa has been a contentious topic recently, and this posting is part of a project by the ICMPD to collaborate and present ideas to ease these tensions. The intern’s purpose will primarily be to provide administrative and communicative support to the rest of the MMD team. No remuneration has been listed, so the internship is assumingly unpaid. The right candidate will have a relevant university degree, and a fluency in both English and French. The required start date is March 1 and applications will be accepted until February 23.

Knowledge Management Officer

The Knowledge Management Officer is the go-to person in the ICMPD for the dissemination of pertinent information throughout the organization, as well as the presentation of these findings to the public. This position, based out of Brussels, is specific to the MIEUX department, which deals specifically with European-based migration issues. The wage is competitive but otherwise unlisted. Eligible applicants will have an advanced university degree with a focus relevant to the position, at least five years of experience in both migration and research, and will be fluent in French and English. The expected start date is in March, and applications will be accepted until February 26.
