Internship Opportunity - Learning and Development hub


Internship Opportunity

July 2022

MSF Belgium is looking for an intern to support the Learning and Development hub for 6 months.

Environment & conditions

MSF Belgium is located in Brussels.

MSF Learning and Development (L&D) hub is supporting the field teams with various learning events such as online training, communities of practice, online live peer sharing, etc. It also brings approaches and methodologies to HR/Development (HRDev) field focal points in terms of capacity building, learning and skills development.

The L&D Hub is looking for an intern for 4 to 6 months, working on both of these components: (1) supporting the design and implementation of various learning events and (2) supporting the HR-development part with targeted communication, peer sharing events, etc.
