29.08.2018 | Oppdatert 12.10.2018
        

Please note: We are looking for an intern every semester. The position is filled for the fall semester of 2018.

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, healthcare exclusion and natural disasters. MSF offers assistance to people based only on need and irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation. Through MSF associations, members, who are all present or former MSF employees or volunteers, have the right and responsibility to voice their opinions and contribute to the definition and guidance of MSF's social mission. The associations bring together individuals in formal and informal debates and activities - in the field, in associative gatherings at national and regional levels and in an annual international assembly.

Position background and description

The intern’s purpose is to assist the Association Coordinator and Assistant in promoting the associative spirit within MSF and support an active associative life, providing institutional memory and organizing events, especially the annual Nordic Association Gathering and the General Assembly.

The Association of MSF Norway has approximately 230 active members and is comprised of current and former field workers, as well as office staff and office volunteers. The Association Coordinator works in a supportive capacity to the Board of Directors and the Association.

The initial part of the assignment will be to actively support the logistic and administrative aspects of the preparation and implementation of our two major events; the Nordic Association Gathering and the annual Nordic Gathering. The Association Intern will be working closely with the Association Coordinator to plan the association members’ attendance to these two-day events and should therefore be able to multi-task, take initiatives and demonstrate strong logistical and organizational skills.

All communication with the Association is in English, and you must be fluent in both spoken and written English. The working language in the office is both Norwegian and English, however, Norwegian is not a requirement.

The Association Intern will also assist in managing the internal member website and membership database administration, updating information, running reports, updating newsletter and cross checking data. Proficiency in Excel with formulas is a needed qualification. This also includes managing and posting documents and information on the site, but also updating it and assisting in planning and editing web streaming of events. Video editing skills is a bonus, although not a needed qualification.

  • Assist in managing and updating the internal member website and database.
  • Assist in the reporting and handling of GDPR consent requirements for data management.
  • Contribute to build the monthly Asso newsletter.
  • Assist in briefs/debriefs with going and returning field workers from mission.

    • Preparation of materials.
    • Create and send out survey and analyze the survey post-event.
  • Perform other tasks supporting the Association Coordinator as the need arises.

  • Able to work independently and with limited supervision on multiple tasks and willing to be flexible with hours and days of work.
  • Ideal candidate is studying (Bachelor or Master preferred).

What is in it for the intern?

Valuable experience from a leading humanitarian organization. Learning from the inside and regular interactions with an international working community. Global overview of MFS in international environment, informal setting with extremely engaged professionals. Seeing the consequences and relevance of global politics, joining a dynamic and devoted Asso team!
