Move Media Communications is offering internships for 6 months or up to one year, to suitable candidates.
Two positions will be available as of early May 2011.
The key aim of MMC’s internship programme is to create learning opportunities for graduate students and young professionals at an early stage in their careers who have demonstrated an interest in media and communications, human rights, peace and development from a theoretical as well as practical perspective. MMC’s interns will have the opportunity to put into practice their theoretical knowledge of media, information and communication, human rights and development by engaging in the operations and programmes of the organization.
The MMC internship programme provides structured and guided support for meeting identified learning objectives which can be achieved in the context of organisational engagement. MMC supports the internship programme through substantive guidance and by involving the interns in in-house as well as external training and engagement. This enables interns to be directly involved in the work agendas and activities of MMC.

Other tasks include monitoring of the media as well as research, collection of data and analysis of information for the Human Rights and Right to Information and Communication Program.
