CHECK OUR OPPORTUNITIES IF YOU WANT TO JOIN OUR TEAM
There are currently no paid jobs available.
There are currently no internship opportunities open for 2023. That said, we do keep a record of interested candidates so feel free to write to us.
Ideally you are a masters student, looking for a long-term internship (over 3 months; 6 months is even better). We prefer those with relevant studies, such as law, human rights, international relations, European studies, politics and/or journalism. Good knowledge of EU structures and of bodies such as the Council of Europe and OECD is a plus. Work experience in related fields is also a plus.
Interns should have a fluent or native level of English, with very strong Spanish language skills (B2 or above). Other European languages are also welcome, particularly French and German.
Internships are not remunerated but we do offer substantive work and a good learning experience. Internships may be some involve travel. If you are coming from abroad, you are expected to organise your own accommodation in Madrid, although we can give you some tips.
When sending your application please attach a copy of your CV and a cover letter in English explaining why you want to work at Access Info, which part of our work interests you, and any previous experience. Please send your applications at info[@]access-info.org
Access Info currently has an opening for a volunteer to work on our website. You should have a strong knowledge of WordPress. Please write to info[@]access-info.org.
Pro Bono Lawyers
Are you a lawyer who is willing to help us defend the right to information? If so, join our Pro Bono Network.
To fully defend the right to information, we sometimes need specific pro bono legal assistance. To meet this need, Access Info has created a pro bono legal network made up of lawyers from across Europe with varying legal backgrounds.
To join this network, it isn’t necessary to be an expert in the right to information, as Access Info will hold training sessions on this right, how it functions in practice and the practical problems we face in accessing that right.
- Are you a qualified lawyer or do you have a strong legal background?
- Are you willing to learn about the right to information?
- Are you willing to offer pro bono assistance?
If you would like to join our network, get in contact: rachel[at]access-info.org
