Expert roster

We are building a community of experts who are interested in contributing to an impactful diaspora-development ecosystem. Currently, the expert roster is open to two categories of experts/professionals who can support EUDiF activities under the Capacity Development Lab and Diaspora Professionals 4 Development mechanism. Experts in the roster may also be invited to join events, in line with their area of expertise. All assignments under CDL and DP4D are paid fairly; the roster is not used for voluntary assignments.

The expert roster is open for registrations for the duration of the EUDiF project (until the end of 2022), although we encourage anyone interested to register as soon as possible to increase the chance to participate in our activities.

Who can register?

Diaspora professional

Currently we are recruiting diaspora professionals with at least five years in one of our five key development sectors: digitalisation, education, environment, entrepreneurship and health. You must be interested in sharing your sectoral knowledge with your country of heritage.

To qualify as a diaspora professional you must be an emigrant or descendant of emigrants from a partner country in one of our target regions: Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe & Central Asia, Latin America & the Caribbean, Middle East Pacific. You must reside in Europe (EU27, UK, Switzerland or Norway) or in another partner country.

Once your registration to the roster is approved, you will be eligible for assignment on projects under the Diaspora Professionals 4 Development (DP4D) mechanism, if your country of heritage applies for support in your domain. We encourage diaspora professionals to share information about the support available via DP4D with contacts in the country of heritage.

Diaspora engagement expert

To qualify as a diaspora engagement expert you must have at least 10 years of experience in diaspora matters and demonstrable experience in capacity development at national and international level, as well as experience working with diaspora organisations and governments.

Once your registration is approved, you will be eligible to support Capacity Development Lab activities.

Diaspora youth internship

We believe strongly in the dynamism of youth actors in development, and the importance of mainstreaming diaspora expertise. Our internship is an opportunity for young diasporans based in Europe and with heritage in our partner regions to gain experience in an international organisation working on migration and development.

Twice a year, we welcome interns to join the team for five months, to gain hands-on experience in the implementation of an EU-funded project on diaspora engagement and to grow and share their own interest and knowledge of diaspora for development. Vacancies are published on the EUDiF and ICMPD websites and promoted via social media.

We currently have no openings.
