MFK opens the last call for internships for women. Almost 200 internship positions already been filled
MFK opens the last cohort of 40 new internship positions for women interested in joining the energy sector in Kosovo. Eligible candidates include women who have graduated in the last three years with a relevant degree but have been unable to secure employment therefore, they have no prior professional experience in the sector.
This is the last wave of internship opportunities for young women through the Women in Energy Internship Program. Throughout this program, nearly 200 women have been given the opportunity to work as interns in the biggest energy companies in Kosovo. Importantly, 30% of them were hired with regular contracts afterwards as engineers, researchers, and project leaders in energy.
Current available positions include: Mechanical Engineer, Project Management Assistant, Assistant to Mechanical Engineers, Site Survey Assistant, Site Engineer, IT Assistant, and more.
Visit the Women in Energy Internship Program Website for more details on open positions and eligibility criteria.
The Internship Program is a component of the broader Women in Energy Program supported by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC). With the Women in Energy Program, MFK and MCC strive to increase women’s awareness of opportunities in the energy sector and to provide practical skill development opportunities through scholarships, internships, and training. Ultimately, this will increase the pool of technically skilled women willing to work in energy-related jobs, and address the gender imbalance in the Kosovo energy sector.
Millennium Foundation Kosovo is an accountable entity responsible for implementation of the $49 million Threshold agreement, signed by the Republic of Kosovo and MCC in 2017. MFK’s mission statement calls for accelerating Kosovo’s transition to energy independence and good governance. The Kosovo Threshold Program addresses two key constraints to Kosovo’s economic growth: an unreliable supply of electricity; and real and perceived weakness in rule of law, government accountability and transparency.
