Дедлайн: 15.11.2013



In order to strengthen the area of communication and media relations and provide more visibility to the CEI, the CEI Secretariat has developed appropriate media relations  in connection with CEI events, activities and projects, including EU-funded projects.

Media relations have been further enhanced also thanks to specific activities, such as the South East Europe Media Forum and the CEI Award for Outstanding Merits in Journalism. In order to better reach the media of the CEI region, a special partnership has also been established with the Italian National News Agency – ANSA, the second news agency in Europe and the fourth worldwide, with offices in 74 countries.

In this context, the CEI Secretariat intends to establish an Advanced Training Programme for a Young Journalist from a news agency of a CEI Member State to be seconded to the CEI Secretariat. The selected candidate will cooperate with the CEI staff and ANSA staff in Trieste for the initial phase of operation of the ANSA New Europe Portal and its development. He/She will also carry out tasks linked to communication and information as well as other CEI activities in the field of media.

The training programme – addressed to young journalists (no more than 35 years of age) with an excellent knowledge of English and a good knowledge of Italian – will last for a period of seven months (renewable for another seven months). The selected candidate will be granted a (non taxable) fellowship of €1.500,00 per month.

The selection procedure will be in compliance with that provided for the implementation of EC co-funded projects. The evaluation – on the basis of competitive merit – will be concluded before the end of December 2013 and the training is foreseen to start in Trieste before the end of January 2014.
