Call for Expression of Interest: Participatory Action Research (PAR) with Migrants in Food Supply Chain Labour Markets

The DignityFIRM research project analyses the living and working conditions of migrants working in food supply chain sectors (agriculture, restaurants, food delivery…). As part of this, PICUM is seeking three consultants/organisations to conduct peer researcher led focus groups in The Netherlands, Poland and Spain, following the Participatory Action Research approach.

The consultancy will run from December 2024 to March 2026.

Please send a proposal explaining how your previous work qualifies you for this subcontract including a budget to imanol.legarda@picum.org by 12 August 2024 (9 a.m. CET).

We do not have other open vacancies at this time. Future opportunities to work with us will be posted on this page, and on our social media.

Traineeships

PICUM has no traineeship position advertised at this time.

Traineeships are advertised twice per year on this page, and on our social media: around June for the period of September-February and around January for the period of March-August.

We cannot accept traineeship applications outside the periods when they are advertised. Please also note that due to the large number of applications we receive, we can only get back to shortlisted candidates.

Partnerships with universities

We have no possibilities to engage in partnerships with universities for internships. However, if you teach or coordinate internships at a university offering relevant programmes such as migration studies, European studies, law, human rights etc., we invite you to share the traineeship programme information with your students.

Volunteering

We welcome volunteers to support our work remotely, depending on their availabilities. Key activities that volunteers can support include:

  • Translations and proofreading: if you are a native speaker of French, Dutch, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Czech, Polish or another European language and your knowledge of English is excellent (C1), or if you already have professional translation experience, you may support us as a volunteer translator. Volunteers only translate into their native language and usually translate analysis, reports, subtitles or conference agendas. Longer documents are generally divided among several volunteers. Volunteers may also be asked to proofread a translated document in their native language to make sure that the language and terminology are correct. 
  • News gathering: we regularly monitor news on specific topics, and welcome the help of volunteers to gather national news.
  • Audiovisual, visual art and design: we are always happy to collaborate with talented illustrators, designers, animation or video editors. Feel free to send us some samples of your work, and we would be happy to discuss potential cooperation. 
  • Photography: we regularly use photos in our publications, website and social media, and welcome photo material that portraits people living in an irregular situation. If you wish to share your photos with us, please make sure we have the necessary consent to publish them on our channels.

Depending on your personal skills and interests, you are welcome to also suggest other ways in which you think you can support undocumented migrants’ rights.

We look forward to working with you!
