Junior Programme take 3: Same principle, broader framework

Ready for 5 more years !

As from January 2018 and for the next five years, the Junior Programme takes on a new challenge: Fostering a new generation of young innovative experts which actively and lastingly engages for the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We continue the recruitment of young professionals (30 annually) to work for 1 or 2 years in the 14 partner countries of Belgium. The Junior Experts will join field projects of Enabel – the Belgian Development Agency – or of projects of NGAs that are affiliated to the Junior Programme.

Principal changes to keep in mind

  • Jobs that are addressing the expertise needs of the sector
  • The possibility for Junior Experts to test innovative approaches and tools
  • Personal coaching for each Junior Expert
  • Development/reboost of multi-actor networks and partnerships that are committed to achieving the SDGs in Belgium and in the field
