The European Endowment for Democracy (EED) is a grant-giving organisation based in Brussels.

EED’s goal is to provide flexible support to democracy activists, complementing other EU and member state democracy support programmes. EED provides context-based, demand driven support based on a principle of fostering democracy and facilitating initiatives of local actors. EED believes in taking an unconventional approach to supporting democracy through investing in transformational ideas and the people behind them. Its geographic mandate covers the European neighbourhood and beyond.

EED seeks trainees for a 12-month traineeship (starting November 2023)

Finance, Operations, Audit Preparation and Administrative Support – Administrative assistance is required to support the finance team of the EED Secretariat, including preparation of timesheets, processing of invoices, records management, supporting the preparation for a series of expenditure verification and systems audits required by EED donors.
