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 person who can provide technical support in the fields of implementation and communication.
The CLUSTER project is funded under the ENI CBC MED program 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 by using a trilingual online platform that IEMed manages as a founding member and secretariat of the Euromediterranitat Women’s Foundation.
CLUSTER 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 unemployed people, 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, thus 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, seeks to occupy a project and communication technical support position to support the CLUSTER Project Manager and the IEMed Project Coordinator in the implementation of CLUSTER and other initiatives that may strengthen its impact.
Deadline for submissions: September 20, 2021.
