The Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy (NIMD) works to promote peaceful, just and inclusive democracy worldwide. We believe that democracy can only thrive when all voices are heard, and that inclusive and respectful dialogue between politicians, political parties, civil society, and citizens is crucial to achieving that goal.

We build all our democracy support programmes around that core belief, ensuring we help empower everyone – from traditionally marginalized groups to established politicians – to play their role in political life and work for the common good of their country. We do this by promoting dialogue, strengthening the capacities of political actors, and training young and established leaders in our Democracy Schools.

Currently, we run programmes in around twenty countries in Africa, Latin America, Southeast Asia, and the MENA region, together with our country offices and partners. To see where NIMD works, visit

NIMD’s Global Office is located in the political heart of the Netherlands in The Hague. Here an experienced and committed international staff of around 30 colleagues provides support to our global programming. Our working culture is informal and open, and encourages initiative, professionalism and interaction. We strive to be the leading democracy network of political practitioners working to promote inclusive and accountable politics.

The office in The Hague comprises four teams: Programmes & Knowledge; Grants Management; Finance, Control & Support; and Positioning. We are currently looking to strengthen our Finance, Control & Support team with a:
