Humanitarian Disarmament & Peacebuilding (

) is the one out of five core sectors within Danish Refugee Council (DRC) which specialises in Humanitarian Mine Action and Armed Violence Reduction. DRC is a non-profit organisation that works worldwide to help and protect refugees, internally displaced and other conflict-affected persons.

The HDP mission is to create a safe environment where people can live free from armed violence and remnants of conflict. HDP strives to achieve this through Humanitarian Mine Action (HMA) activities, focusing on landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW), as well as Armed Violence Reduction (AVR) programmes. The AVR component of our programming addresses both physical and psycho-social aspects of the threats posed by small arms and ERW. HDP’s work is vital in helping refugees, internally displaced people (IDPs) and other communities return to their homes when the conflict has ended, allowing them to make use of the land they were forced to leave behind and facilitating development.

Overall objective

HDP is looking for a student assistant who will work at DRC’s headquarters in Copenhagen. The student assistant will have the opportunity to become acquainted with work within an INGO and will have different administrative tasks related to general support to the country programmes. The student assistant will occasionally also be asked to participate in tasks related to fundraising, monitoring and evaluation, communications and other relevant areas of work.

The student assistant will be given the opportunity to work independently with different tasks that are related to his or her line of study and will be given a thorough introduction to the working relations at the headquarters of an organisation that works with mine action, armed violence reduction, and other humanitarian activities in more than 20 countries.

The position

The student assistant will work in close cooperation with colleagues on a variety of administrative tasks, as well as those of an economic and programmatic nature. The student assistant is expected to:

  • assist with preparation, formatting and proofreading of documents and correspondence ranging from different publications to project proposals;
  • assist with the continual improvement of work processes and support systems;

  • to gain experience working at an NGO;
