Internship recruitment at the Permanent Representation of Ireland

The Permanent Representation of Ireland to the OECD and UNESCO, based in Paris, is recruiting two stagiaires for a six-month internship, one starting in early April 2017 and one starting in early May 2017.

The internship is a Stage Conventionné and prospective interns must provide evidence of compliance with this. Remuneration is approximately €500 per month, plus a contribution towards meals (€180 in tickets restaurants).

The main tasks are assisting with report-writing, event management and some administrative duties as well as attending and representing Ireland at meetings at the OECD and UNESCO. The interns work closely with diplomatic staff in the relevant policy areas. Candidates must be able to demonstrate a 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 an advantage. Language skills will be tested. Knowledge of current affairs and/or the workings of international organisations is desirable.
