Apply for the UN Women Internship Programme (Multiple International Openings)

24 Oct, 2017

About the Programme

The UN Women Internship Programme offers outstanding students the opportunity to acquire direct exposure to UN Women’s work in areas such as strategic partnership, communications, advocacy, policy, evaluation, human resources, programme planning, research and data, finance, and ICT.

Internship assignments vary greatly in terms of content. They may have a country-specific, regional, sectoral, or thematic focus. Most interns support  the design, implementation and evaluation of UN Women projects and will learn about the work of gender and humanitarian action in an international environment.

Internships are offered depending on the availability of meaningful assignments and the needs and capacity of units/offices to receive and supervise interns.
