International Labour Organization (ILO) Internship Opportunities

If you are thinking of entering the world of the UN within a specialized agency, the International Labour Organization (ILO) will offer you its unique tripartite structure and projects around the decent work agenda, where working with governments, employers and workers is the exciting challenge of every days work.

What will I learn and take away from this experience?
The aim of our internship programme is to give you exposure to the daily work of the ILO. You will be given the opportunity to support and learn from our people and be part of a team. You will be accompanying outstanding and inspiring career professionals and senior management within the Organization. Moreover, you will be exposed to high-profile conferences, participate in meetings, and contribute to analytical work as well as support to work on our fundamental principles, exciting programmes and groundbreaking strategies. Initially you will take on the amount of responsibility you can shoulder; the potential for growth, however, is yours to develop.

Can I apply for an internship?
Every year a limited number of places for internships are available. To check if you are eligible to join the programme, you should ask yourself the following questions:

• What particularly interests you about the ILO?
• Are you currently enrolled in a graduate or higher degree programme relevant to the ILO's work or did you graduate within the last year?
• Do you have a working knowledge (both oral and written) of at least one of the ILO's official languages (English, French or Spanish)?

Furthermore, you should be able and interested to adapt to an international, multicultural, multilingual environment and have excellent communication skills. As an intern you need to be able to work fairly independently as well as part of a team and be initiative and flexible. Any past work experience and knowledge of IT-related work would be an advantage. Please also note, that close relatives of a serving ILO official are not eligible. The same applies to candidates who have already been working at the ILO or who have already participated in the Internship programme earlier.

How long is the Internship?
The length of an internship is usually between three up to a maximum of six months. Internships start on the 1st or 15th of each month (or the day after if it happens to be a non-working day)

Is the internship paid?
Where an intern is not supported by an institution (university, government or other institution), a stipend to cover basic subsistence costs will be paid by the ILO.
