EGEC, the voice of the geothermal sector, seeks a policy assistant to support its activities on renewable energy and climate legislation as well as EU funded projects. An initial six-month internship contract, under Belgian “convention immersion professionnelle” law, is offered. There is a possibility of an extension for the right candidate.
We seek a candidate with at least 12 months post-graduate professional experience, preferably in energy, climate or EU affairs in a think-tank, association, company or civil society organisation. We also welcome applicants seeking to enter renewable energy and climate fields. A native-level grasp of written English is essential alongside good self-organisation skills and the maturity to be an effective team player.
In return, EGEC offers a dynamic and positive working environment combined with a structured learning programme in a small team. This will allow you to grow whilst making a real difference in the deployment of renewable energy solutions and tackling the climate crisis.

The closing date for applications is 17 June, 2020.
