International labor organization – Employment 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.
The ILO is devoted to advancing opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity. Its main aims are to promote rights at work, encourage decent employment opportunities, enhance social protection and strengthen dialogue in handling work-related issues. If you are interested in joining the ILO as an intern you will help to make its vision of universal human conditions of labour a reality.
At the ILO you will face dynamic, results-based practices. Our culture promotes high-performance and encourages knowledge-sharing and enhanced talent management. As the acknowledged leader in labour issues, ILO is committed to building future leaders in the world of work. ILO’s Internship Programme provides a wide range of opportunities for young high calibre graduate and postgraduate students or recently graduated candidates who now look for a first working experience in fields related to the ILO’s mandate and activities.
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.
As an intern at the ILO, you are seen as a valuable source of young talent that can contribute through the most recent academic thinking and research experience to our daily work and challenges.
When would I get an answer? :
If a department opens an internship position, it will consult the roster. In case your profile matches, you will be contacted directly by the department. Please note that due to the large number of applicants, departments are not necessarily in a position to reply to each request and only short-listed applicants will be contacted for telephone interview.
