PAID INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT JOB ALERT KLAXON: We are rather busy, and want to hire an additional 1, or 2, person(s) to our Fellowship programme – which you can read about in this old post

How to apply:

We have a specific need on this occasion for people with strong, fast and accurate writing skills. Location will most likely be Juba, South Sudan. We will be reviewing applications as they land, starting Friday 9/10/20, ending Monday 19/10/20.

Send to colleaguesandfriends [at] a 2 page CV, a 2 page letter explaining why you fit the bill, and a 3*A4 page (Book Antiqua 12 point, single space, no paragraph longer than five lines) essay on one of these two topics:

  1. For any Head of Government of an SSA country, give a specific plan for how they could win the @Mo_IbrahimFdn prize (for a Head of Government retiring in good order) following the next election in their country.
  2. “The @FCDOGovUK has lost an empire, but not yet found a specialism”: explain what development work the UK should _stop_ doing.

It’s UK minimum wage, accommodation + a bit of money for goat-n-chips. Applications from BIPOC, diaspora, historic Global South backgrounds, backgrounds that can’t afford to do self-funded charity internships, especially welcome: if you can think, write & count, we are interested.
