Jobs 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.

Internships at WILPF International Secretariat in Geneva: 

Communications Intern

Your tasks will include exploring different communication outlets, producing communication materials (brochures, banners, merchandise), web editing, social media, newsletter production and campaign management. Depending on your skills and interests, you will also have the opportunity to work with graphics, photos and video. Whether you have acquired your communication skills in the classroom or in the field, joining a grassroots organisation will enable you to transfer them to a professional environment by working on real world issues. You should be pursuing or intend to pursue a Masters Degree in communications, journalism, literature, or a related field. The full-time internship will be from the 4 June – 30 November 2018. Please find the full details here.

Volunteering

By lending your abilities to WILPF, you play a vital role in helping us to promote our cause and get closer to achieving our goals.

As a small NGO with a limited budget we are always looking for willing, committed, and friendly volunteers to help us with specific tasks, from helping organise side events at the UN to working with our Sections around the world.

All volunteer positions are unpaid, but the work of volunteers is extremely valued.

If you wish to volunteer locally in a specific country, then contact the Section directly.
