UNV Internship programme open for applications
Irish Aid is funding sixteen positions as part of the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) Internship programme in 2010.
The purpose of the programme is to help develop the next generation of Irish development workers and to provide individuals who want to work in the Irish overseas development sector the opportunity to gain field experience with the UN in some of its missions around the world. Interns will be placed as project officers with UN agencies located mostly in one of Irish Aid’s programme countries; Ethiopia, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Timor Leste, Uganda, Vietnam and Zambia. However some placements may also be in other countries in which Irish Aid provides support e.g. Cambodia, Laos, Sierra Leone and the Ukraine.
Interns will work in a UN field office for a period of 12 months (non-renewable) and will receive a stipend to cover basic living expenses and travel. Successful applicants will work in one or more of the following areas: education, gender, environment, health, HIV and AIDS, water and sanitation, governance, emergency and rehabilitation, communications, food security and rural development.
