The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees offers assistance and protection to refugees around the world. UNHCR is one of the largest refugee agencies, with a staff of over 8600 employees who help some 36 million people in over 125 countries.
The External Relations Unit for Belgium and Luxembourg seeks native French-speaking interns for three to six months starting 14 October 2014. The intern should have a good command of English and a good comprehension of Dutch and knowledge of the media sector (including social media). Graphic design, website content management and video-making and editing skills are a strong asset.
What we offer
Interns are entrusted with increasingly independent tasks. We seek individuals with a responsible, follow-up approach. The UNHCR External Relations office for Western Europe is also strengthening its use of social media and videos, for which the interns are key contributors. We continuously innovate with new projects. Interns participate in meetings; their creative ideas, technical knowhow and other contributions are highly valued. Some of our projects’ end results are visible on our website unhcr.be, in which the interns play a key role in updating.
