This year, the IEMed was awarded a grant to tackle social exclusion and poverty amongst vulnerable groups, through the ENI CBC Med project CLUSTER.
CLUSTER is currently looking for a Project Manager.
The CLUSTER project is funded under the ENI CBC MED programme with the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) as the main partner and implemented through a consortium of partners from Italy, Cyprus, France, Jordan, Palestine, and Tunisia. The project aims to address social exclusion and poverty among vulnerable groups, focusing on youth and women, taking advantage of the results of previous projects, and equipping the unemployed with market skills in the Sustainable Economy sectors, taking advantage of a trilingual platform online that IEMed manages as a founding member and secretariat of the Euro Mediterranean Women’s Foundation.
The CLUSTER project will create a lasting impact on its final beneficiaries throughout the Euromed region. Through online tools such as training courses, e-platform and coaching, the project will impact at least 2,800 people unemployed, strengthening their skills in sustainable economies and increasing their employment opportunities. Employment services and education providers will boost their capacities to combine supply and demand skills, and economic players will benefit from skilled youth workforce, contributing to the long-term growth of companies. In addition, public operators in the Euromed area will receive tangible recommendations on the design of sustainable youth / women employment schemes based on designed action plans.
IEMed, as the main partner of the project, intends to fill the position of Project Manager who will collaborate closely with the organisation’s Project Coordinator and will guarantee the implementation of high-impact and quality projects and effective coordination with the consortium partners, performing follow-up tasks, evaluation and information, leading the writing of recommendations for claiming purposes and in innovative communication initiatives.
Deadline for submissions: September 20, 2021.
