Fellows will work in the following departments: data analytics (two positions), digital and content marketing (two positions), events coordinating (two positions), project management (two positions), research and development (two positions) and social sustainability: outreach and community (two positions).
Skills including communications, content creation, critical thinking, crisis management, data collection, management, market research, social sustainability, time management, presentation skills and problem-solving will be developed during the fellowship.
The fellows will receive official CIAFE CPD recognised accreditation courses, priority registration and access to courses such as the Conde Nast College x CIAFE x AFF accredited course, among other benefits.
