An interesting field of work in a fascinating country


A diverse culture, a vast history, nine UNESCO world heritage sites, home to the source of the Blue Nile, a strong advocate of Pan-Africanism, an economy developing at tremendous speed and a unique political context: if there is any place you should apply to get work experience in Africa, it should be in Ethiopia.

Together with its partners, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, a political foundation committed to the values of social democracy has been actively supporting political, social and economic development in Ethiopia since 1993. We are looking for motivated interns to be part of our inspiring and dynamic team.

For a duration of between three and six months, applicants with at least two years of study in a field relevant to its work, i.e. Social Science, Economics, International Law, Journalism, or African Studies, can gain unique work experience in our office in Addis Abeba.

Interested? Your application should include a letter of motivation, a detailed CV and relevant references. Please send your application by email to . If your application is successful, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung will provide you with assistance on visa and assurance regulations as well as with information on accommodation and living.

Looking forward to meeting you in Addis!
