PAID INTERNSHIPS: 29 Fully-Funded Paid Internship Opportunities at the International Labour Organization, Open to Applicants of All Nationalities

Are you ready to embark on a fulfilling journey in the realm of international labor and employment? The International Labour Organization (ILO) is excited to announce 29 paid internship positions, offering a unique opportunity for you to gain valuable experience and insights into the daily workings of the ILO.

What Does the ILO Internship Program Entail?
The core objective of the ILO internship program is to provide interns with a comprehensive understanding of the ILO's activities and functions. These internships have a duration of three to six months and are crafted to enrich your professional development.

The ILO's Internship Programme presents a diverse array of opportunities for high-caliber graduate and postgraduate students, as well as recent graduates. It offers a "hands-on" learning experience in fields aligned with the ILO's mandate and activities. The program's goal is to expose interns to the day-to-day operations of the ILO over a period of three to six months.

To qualify for an internship at the ILO, you should be enrolled in the final year of a graduate degree (Master's or equivalent) or be part of a higher degree program relevant to the ILO's mission. Alternatively, you should have completed such a program in the year preceding your application. Proficiency in at least one of the ILO's working languages (English, French, or Spanish) is required, along with the ability to adapt to an international, multicultural, and multilingual environment. There are no age restrictions for applicants.

The ILO initiates the Internship Roster, which is a call for applications, 2 to 3 times annually. Once the application period concludes, the profiles of eligible candidates are made accessible to departments seeking interns during a designated roster period. Consequently, internships can commence on the 1st or 15th of any month throughout the year.
