Employment in the projects
Enabel mobilises institutional and organisational capacity development know-how to address the global challenges of climate change, human mobility, urbanisation and social and economic inequalities.
The following are some of our domains of expertise:
- Private Sector Development
The presence of an international project manager or an international technical expert working with local actors reflects the principle of sharing know-how. Duty stations differ by project and can be in the capital city as well as in remote and isolated areas.
A technical expert does not only have proven technical competency and actual management skills, but he or she must also be able to work together with colleagues who come from very diverse cultural backgrounds. He or she is a facilitator. His or her talent is to orchestrate, organise and plan. Enthusiasm, a spirit of enterprise and persistence increase the chances of success in cooperation.
Through the Junior Programme
, Enabel offers European youths an opportunity to acquire a first professional experience in international cooperation.
