IOD PARC Internship Scheme
Project starting Autumn 2021
Application Deadline: Monday 2 August 2021 at 12pm
IOD PARC (https://www.iodparc.com/) is a small consulting company with offices in Edinburgh, Sheffield or Kathmandu that works with a wide range of organisations and partnerships involved in international development: bilateral and multilateral organisations, INGOs, private sector and philanthropic foundations. IOD PARC supports organisations to increase their impact and improve their results working at the intersection of performance assessment and organisational development.
IOD PARC is leading a consortium which delivers Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning services focused on Resilience in Nepal for the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office in Nepal. The researcher will work closely alongside the mentor and IOD PARC’s Nepal and South Asia portfolio to increase the conceptual understanding of resilience of people and services.
This placement will provide:
- The opportunity to learn how to work within a team which values intellectual rigour and translates this into practical tools/recommendations.
- Exposure to working in the private sector and deep understanding of the constraints and opportunities that factors in international development.
- The opportunity to generate an impact outside academia, and therefore to increase the relevance and quality of the researcher work for different audiences.
Full details of the internship can be found here. The deadline to apply is Monday 2 August at noon.
