ILO’s Internship Programme provides a wide range of opportunities to graduate/postgraduate students and recently graduated candidates who are looking for a “hands-on” learning experience in fields related to the ILO’s mandate and activities over a three to six-month period.
ILO Internship Programme provides an opportunity for talented individuals to:
- increase understanding of relevant issues at the international level by involving them directly in the work of the Office and the application of ILO principles, programmes, and strategies;
- gain practical experience with the ILO directly related to their field of study.
Who can apply
Eligible applicants must be enrolled in the last year of a graduate degree (Master or equivalent) or in a higher degree programme relevant to the ILO’s work or have completed such a programme in the year preceding the application.
They must also have a working knowledge of at least one of the ILO’s working languages (English, French, or Spanish) and be able to adapt to an international, multicultural, multilingual environment.
There is no age limit for applicants.

Interns receive a monthly stipend from the ILO based on the cost of living in the area of the duty station, unless they receive funding through another institution (for example a university or a foundation). If interns receive partial funding, ILO will cover the difference to ensure they receive the appropriate stipend per month. Travel to the duty station will be at their own expense.
