Internship Recruitment

The Permanent Representation of Ireland to the OECD and UNESCO, based in Paris, is recruiting two stagiaires for a six-month internship, starting in late September 2016. The internship is a Stage Conventionné and prospective interns must provide evidence of compliance with this. Remuneration is approximately €530 per month, including a contribution towards meals and a Paris transport card.

The main tasks are assisting with report-writing, event management and some administrative duties as well as attending meetings at the OECD and UNESCO. The interns work closely with diplomatic staff in the relevant policy areas. Candidates must be able to demonstrate good knowledge of Ireland, as well as a familiarity with the work of both the OECD and UNESCO. An ability to work comfortably – orally and written - in English and French is a requirement. Language skills will be tested.

If interested, please email a CV and motivation letter (in English) to shane.dowling[at]dfa[dot]ie


The deadline for applications is 8th September 2016.
