For the 4th consecutive year, IDF Europe is continuing its Member Associations Staff Exchange Programme . If you are working for a member association, apply for this unique opportunity to join the IDF Europe staff and work in Brussels as a “staff member on loan”, in a dynamic and international atmosphere for 6 months (July to December 2014).
The successful applicant will be involved in activities such as:
• Contribute to on-going advocacy and membership activities and projects managed by IDF Europe
• Help foster improved relations with European Member Associations
• Represent IDF Europe at events and conferences
• Help in the organization of various meetings and congresses & preparing material for those
For IDF Europe, the programme is also the opportunity to gain valuable insight into the work and projects carried out by member associations, and to look at ways to strengthen the collaboration with our membership.
Alexandra Costa, from the Portuguese Diabetes Association (APDP), took part in this programme in 2013 and this is what she has to say about her experience:
“Working at IDF Europe was one of the best experiences of my life. I felt part of the wonderful IDF Europe team, I was really satisfied with being involved in so many different projects. It was a great pleasure for me. I improved my language and professional skills, I did a lot of research concerning the project Access to Quality Medicines and Medical Devices for Diabetes Care in Europe. Working on this groundbreaking project gave me the opportunity of having my name in a European research publication for the first time. Living in Brussels was also amazing and it was a great opportunity to experience life in a multicultural environment. I returned to Portugal feeling motivated and wanting to implement all the things I've learned in my own country.”
