Students with a background in journalism and a good grasp of English are welcome to apply to this program which is designed to give a practical taste of what working within an international agency is all about. Some knowledge of French would be advantageous but is not a prerequisite.

While experiencing a new country and culture, students have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience and develop useful skills within their field. Internships are available with local agencies as well as some international agencies such as Skye News and Morocco World News.

The internship will be arranged based on the students' skills and experience and once on-site they will paired with an internship mentor who will monitor their workload and provide on-going support and assistance.

Responsibilities are likely to include:

  • Editing original content written by the agency correspondents and contributors.
  • Writing articles in English (news, reports, interviews, op-eds, research papers).
  • Assist with social media pages and groups on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram.
  • Video/picture editing.
  • Help in developing Digital Media Planning and Online Marketing Strategies.
  • Online Strategic Planning and Insights on latest digital trends.
  • Developing and maintaining a social media strategy that can help the agency secure its leadership in Morocco and enhance its visibility.
  • Develop monitor and implement social media campaigns.
  • Develop guidelines and training materials to ensure consistency in style and content for the agency contributors.
  • Help in drafting proposals for the agency partnerships program with other institutions.
  • Help in drafting applications for grants and/or fellowships to meet the guidelines of potential donors/foundations.

Internships are available year round with a minimum commitment of 4 weeks. Positions will be assigned in Rabat and host family accommodation will be provided nearby.

Overseas internships are a great way of enhancing your CV and employers generally regard this highly when recruiting. So join us in Morocco for this exciting opportunity to gain valuable experience in journalism.

Volunteers on this project can choose to be accommodated either with one of our friendly local host families, or at our private and comfortable volunteer house. In both situations volunteers are provided two traditional, home-cooked meals (breakfast and dinner), and can enjoy the comforts of hot showers and communal areas to relax.
