Internships are available in a variety of places, based on the requirements and ability of offices to accept, supervise, and deliver meaningful work to interns. An internship can start at any time of the year and last between two and six months.
Candidates must satisfy the following requirements in order to be considered for an intern
- Recent graduate* or current graduate/undergraduate school student from a UNESCO-accredited university or higher education institution; and
- Have completed at least two years of undergraduate education in a discipline related to the organization’s activities or of interest to it.
*Those who finished their studies within one year of applying for an internship with UNHCR are considered recent graduates.
Allowance for food and local transportation
Interns who do not get financial assistance from a third party will be given a stipend to help with food and transportation costs.
Interns should be prepared to fund their own transport to and from the duty station, as well as any other costs not covered by the UNHCR grant.
It is the intern’s obligation to get a visa and bear all associated expenses. The UNHCR can assist with the necessary documentation.
Before beginning an internship with UNHCR, applicants must arrange for medical insurance and provide proof of coverage to UNHCR that is valid for the duration of the contract.
UNHCR is not responsible for any fees associated with interns’ medical insurance, nor does it pay the costs of interns’ medical evacuation.
Interns working in areas with insufficient medical facilities should make sure their medical insurance includes emergency medical evacuation.
Interns should also make sure that the health insurance they get covers them geographically for both accidents and illnesses.
Applicants will go through a screening procedure to see if they are qualified for the position for which they applied.
To ensure that we choose the appropriate individual for the right job, we will evaluate the educational background, relevant work experience, and qualifications. Language requirements, diversity, and gender will all be taken into account.
Competency-based interviews and assessments
Candidates who pass the basic eligibility screening will be asked to complete a series of assessments (language and functional exams, if needed), after which they will be graded.
Candidates who pass these tests will be contacted by a recruiter based on UNHCR’s need to fill vacancies.
UNHCR works with the top people in the world. Competency-based interviews will be undertaken to ensure that we employ the appropriate individual for the right role.
These types of interviews are founded on the idea that previous behavior and experience are the best predictors of future results.
To put it another way, your past tells a story about you: your talents, skills, abilities, knowledge, and practical experience in dealing with a wide range of circumstances.
Apart from verifying past schooling and job experience, we also ensure that the individual we employ is a team player who can fit into the company’s culture, flourish and work in a multi-cultural organization, and has a love for serving those in need.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) will make a formal offer to successful candidates. Our professional recruiters will react to candidates’ inquiries as part of this process, ensuring a seamless transition to their new role.
