DEADLINE – April 30, 2018
The UN Global Compact offers internship opportunities in its New York office. The UN Global Compact pursues two complementary objectives: (1) making the UN Global Compact and its principles part of business strategy and operations everywhere; and (2) facilitating cooperation among key stakeholders by promoting partnerships and other collective action in support of UN goals. Internships with the UN Global Compact are available for a duration of three to six months. The timing of internships is flexible. They encourage candidates to apply for the following sessions:
Summer / Fall: August to November (with a possible extension to December)
Winter / Spring: January to May (with a possible extension to June)
Location: United States
The objective of the internship is to give you a first-hand impression of the day-to-day working environment of the United Nations.
You will be given a real chance to work with their people.
As part of their team, working directly with outstanding and inspiring career professionals and senior management, you will be exposed to high-profile conferences, participate in meetings, and contribute to analytical work as well as the organizational policy of the United Nations.
Initially, you will take on the amount of responsibility you can shoulder; the potential for growth, however, is yours to develop.
Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree programme (bachelors or second university degree, or higher) at the time of application and during the internship
Under some circumstances, applicants may have graduated within less than one year to commence a UN internship.
Interns must therefore be able to cover their costs of travel, accommodation, as well as living expenses during the internship period.
