Previous interns’ testimonials
Intern in Brussels, July 2016 – January 2017
“My experience as an intern at WFTO-Europe was truly rewarding.
Being part of a small team and working together on a day-to-day basis allowed me to explore a variety of different tasks: from managing a network of almost 90 European Fair Trade organizations to developing several communication strategies so as to raise awareness about the Fair Trade Principles.
However, what I liked the most was the approach of this office to its interns: I never felt disregarded by my team and my opinion was valued and always appreciated. The feedback received from my coordinator was extremely constructive and the synergy between the three of us gave me the chance to complete my tasks in autonomy and with enthusiasm.
If what you are looking for is a rewarding but the same time demanding experience in an international environment where you can develop both professionally as well as a person, then I would highly recommend an internship here at WFTO-Europe.
I am definitely going to miss working here!”
Intern in Brussels, July 2015 – January 2016
“The internship at the WFTO-Europe offered just so many opportunities!
I achieved a deeper understanding about the Fair Trade Movement in general, the role of WFTO within it as well as the specific system which illustrates the heart of WFTO’s approach. The tasks that I had to conduct on a daily basis were divers and exciting, especially due to the close contact with the members, and within 6 month I could not even count one boring day.
Furthermore, thanks to the possibility to attend EU events of personal interest in addition to the inputs due to the cooperation with the FTAO, I was able to gain insights into the European Union, its structure and work.
I enjoyed learning so many new things and improving and consolidating the skills I arrived with.”
