The Prince Claus Fund is looking for a new intern to work in the Grants and Collaborations programme; preferably starting at the last week of July/beginning of August, for a minimum of 5 months.
We would like to invite an intern who: is a BA or MA student (the applicant is a registered student throughout the course of the internship); is interested in culture and arts with a background in studies of an international character and culture; is fluent in English and at least one other foreign language-preferably Spanish and/or French; has a good knowledge of world history and geography; is computer-proficient (Word, Excel, Power Point and Internet are essential)
The intern MUST HAVE a valid work permit for the Netherlands (according to Dutch Labour Law)
The Grants and Collaborations programme supports innovative, high quality cultural initiatives in spaces where resources and opportunities for cultural expression, creative production and research are limited. The programme does this through the bi-annual calls for proposals and the long-term collaborations that it develops with network partners. Cross-cultural collaboration between artists coming from developing countries is supported by the all year long open Ticket Fund. The intern will assist the Programme Coordinator with different tasks ranging from planning and implementation of the call, to the organization of the network committee meeting and the development of new network partnerships, as well as administration and logistics regarding the Ticket Fund.
The internship will provide work experience relevant to the successful candidate’s education, within an international organisation. It involves the following functions: daily support to the Programme Coordinator for Grants and Collaborations; analysis and evaluation of the working methods applied and of the criteria used; preparation and support with organizing a large Network Partners meeting; interaction and relationships with the Fund´s partners and grantees; preparation of an bi-annual review of the achievements of the fund/programme; daily support for the administration of the Ticket Fund
Core traits of our ideal candidate are: working with very high precision, extremely well organizing skills, an analytical mind, excellent communicator and a savvy multi-tasker. The candidate will have to maintain a network of regular contacts with partners of the Fund and support the Coordinator with daily administrative tasks.
At the PCF we value diversity and are committed to equal opportunities. We welcome applications from ethnic minorities who are currently under-represented in our organization.
The intern will receive reimbursement of costs amounting up to 250 Euros per month (based on full time working hours).
Applicants should send a CV and cover letter (in English) before 15 July 2015 via e-mail to the Programme Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org
The letter should explain your motivation for applying for the internship.
Please note that due to the number of applications only short listed candidates will be contacted!
NB: living in Amsterdam is very expensive and accommodation can be hard to find. Please consider this when applying from outside The Netherlands.
