UNECE Internship Programme

UNECE Internship Programme

The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) accepts interns from time to time on an ad hoc basis.

The internships are open to graduate or post-graduate students, who have specialized in a field related to UNECE programmes of work, namely: environment, transport, statistics, sustainable energy, trade, timber and forests, housing and land management, population, and economic cooperation and integration.

Occasionally, the Commission has a need for interns with specific skills and will post those internship opportunities.

Internships are offered free-of-charge and without financial remuneration.

The United Nations accepts no legal or administrative liability for interns who are not accorded the status of a United Nations staff member.

All costs connected with an internship, including travel, accommodation1 and insurance, are borne by the intern or his/her sponsor.

An internship carries no expectancy of subsequent employment with the United Nations.

Interns are required to submit a certificate of good health and, wherever applicable, to obtain themselves the appropriate visa.

Eligibility criteria:

To qualify for UNECE internship programme, the applicants must be enrolled in a degree programme in a graduate school (second university degree or higher) at the time of application and during the internship.
