Policy Trainee (Marine/Water)

Milieu Consulting SPRL

Brussels, Belgium

Milieu Consulting is a multi-disciplinary consultancy based in Brussels with a record of excellence in international and European policy and law – primarily with respect to environmental protection but also in such fields as fundamental rights, public health, consumer protection and health and safety. We provide our expertise mainly for European institutions and other public sector clients. Despite having grown rapidly over the years we retain a very informal, collaborative and largely non-hierarchical working environment. Please visit our website at www.milieu.be to understand more about our activities and our corporate culture.

We are looking for a trainee with a background in marine or water science, management or planning and experience with policy/consultancy work. The trainee will work closely with our marine/water team and be involved in our work on marine environment policy and regulatory framework.

This will involve in particular:

  • Processing and analysing data on the implementation of the Marine Framework Strategy Directive and other water or environmental policies;
  • Supporting the drafting of sections of reports and other deliverables under the supervision of senior team members;
  • Gathering information and conducting research through desk studies, collection of quantitative data and stakeholder consultation via emails and interviews to support studies and proposals on a wide set of environmental topics;
  • Supporting management including communication with partners and external experts and internal/external reporting tasks.

Key qualifications for the position:

  • Masters degree or higher in marine/environmental sciences/policy or other relevant discipline;
  • Background and experience in European public policy analysis; knowledge of the EU, regional and international regulatory/policy framework on the protection of the marine environment and biodiversity (in particular of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive and the Regional Sea Conventions) is desirable;
  • Minimum one year prior work experience; focus on marine biodiversity or water-related issues is considered an advantage;
  • Well-organised, practical-minded and able to prioritise a busy and varied workload;
  • An independent, self-starter personality;
  • Excellent written and spoken English; knowledge of other EU languages strongly desirable;
  • Strong computer skills, particularly Microsoft Word and Excel.

What you will find at Milieu:

  • English as the principal working language;
  • A very informal, supportive and collaborative, yet highly professional working environment;
  • A minimum of hierarchy and internal bureaucracy;
  • A strong dedication to public policy;
  • A strong commitment to quality in what we do;
  • A dynamic multi-cultural atmosphere with some 30 nationalities;
  • A relaxed dress code – except when we are meeting our clients;
  • Regular company barbeques, training lunches, end of month meetings, weekly yoga classes;
  • Biennial company weekend retreats to international locations.
