Policy Intern (Marine)
Milieu Ltd is a multi-disciplinary consultancy based in Brussels with a record of excellence in international and European policy and law – primarily with respect to environmental protection but also in such fields as fundamental rights, public health, consumer protection and health and safety. We provide our expertise mainly for European institutions and other public sector clients. Despite having grown rapidly over the years we retain a very informal, collaborative and largely non-hierarchical working environment. Please visit our website at www.milieu.be to understand more about our activities and our corporate culture.
We are looking for an intern, with a background in marine sciences and experience with policy/consultancy work. The intern will work closely with our marine team and be involved in our work on marine environment policy and regulatory framework. This will involve in particular:
Conducting research to support studies on the protection of the marine environment at the international, EU and regional levels and other related topics including literature review, stakeholder surveys/interviews and collection and processing of data;
Supporting management including communication with partners and external experts and internal/external reporting tasks;
Supporting the drafting of sections of reports and other deliverables under the supervision of senior team members.
Key qualifications for the position:
Masters degree or higher in marine sciences/policy or other relevant discipline;
Background and experience in European public policy analysis; knowledge of the EU, regional and international regulatory/policy framework on the protection of the marine environment and biodiversity (in particular of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive and the Regional Sea Conventions) is desirable;
Minimum one year prior work experience; focus on marine biodiversity-related issues is considered an advantage;
Well-organised, practical-minded and able to prioritise a busy and varied work-load;
An independent, self-starter personality;
Excellent written and spoken English; knowledge of other EU languages strongly desirable;
Strong computer skills, particularly Microsoft Word and Excel.
