Analyst traineeship programme
We offer a traineeship programme for students and graduates who are interested in pursuing a career in the humanitarian sector and want to gain relevant work experience. Our traineeship programme lasts 12 months and is designed for progressive and constant learning.
Our trainees are mentored personally by a designated analyst and benefit from internal training by ACAPS staff, as well as thematic trainings by outside experts and other organisations.
As a trainee analyst, you will be in charge of following on a daily basis a portfolio of approximately 5 to 10 countries and report on the humanitarian situation with a weekly update. You will gain significant expertise in both quantitative and qualitative analysis of humanitarian crises. Within two-three months, you will have acquired the core basics for the regular work at ACAPS, and will be able to move on to other analytical products. There are also opportunities to lead projects.
EU or EFTA nationals only can apply for the traineeship. Note: if you hold a work permit linked to university studies, we could consider your application. Candidates with Swiss residence or work permit, kindly provide a copy with your applications.
Unfortunately we don't take into consideration applications received outside the recruiting period.
