The EUROCLIO staff works out of the organisation’s secretariat, based in The Hague - International City of Peace and Justice. This office supports the association in delivering services to members, general assembly and board. It also implements projects and actions identified in the annual work programming according to the eight areas of work and the seven key issues. Project managers are responsible for a wide range of projects. The programme director designs and oversees complementary actions. The Director has overall responsibility and fosters partnership development and advocacy. Due to the limited size of project grants, the staff works in a holistic and flat fashion. In doing so it maintains a slim and agile operation. The secretariat offers traineeships to students from all over Europe and beyond and offers them real work experience in balancing responsibilities with opportunities for learning.
