Internships

Are you in the middle of your studies? Do you wish to transform theory to practice? To improve your skills? To get real experience on your CV?

Then you are perhaps the candidate we are looking for.

WILPF International often offers internships for individuals who wish to learn more about disarmament, women, peace and security issues, women’s human rights, grassroots communications and NGO management in the context of the United Nations and international organisations.

The right candidates have to be:

  • self-motivated
  • able to work independently
  • willing to learn
  • open minded
  • flexible
  • not afraid to take initiative

We are an international office with many nationalities, but our working language is English, which means that you have to be fluent in English — oral and written. Depending on the specific internship other languages can be a plus.

WILPF is part of the charter We Pay Our Interns, which means we pay a monthly stipend of 900 CHF.

We only accept applications for posted internships.
