The UNICEF Internship Programme offers qualified students the opportunity to acquire practical experience under the direct supervision of experienced UNICEF staff at both headquarters and country offices. Candidates must be currently-enrolled graduate or post-graduate students in a field related to UNICEF's interests; fluent in English and one other UNICEF working language, such as French, Spanish, Arabic, Russian or Chinese; and have an excellent academic record. Applications must be supported by the university or related institution.
Applicants must also have a demonstrated interest in the field of international development and an ability to adapt and work in a multi-cultural setting. Additional consideration will be given for any past experience. Applicants must specify if they are applying for assignment to the headquarters in New York or to another field office. A maximum of three field offices is allowed if applying to more than one location outside New York. Applications are accepted year round.
