IDDIP 2018 Call for Applications
UNA-Canada is now accepting applications for its International Development & Diplomacy Internship Programme (IDDIP).
These discipline work-integrated learning opportunities provide successful applicants, known as Junior Professional Consultants (JPCs), with invaluable, demanding, deeply meaningful work experience, as well as a proven bridge to employment. Now in its 21st year of investing in talented young Canadians, IDDIP is proud to continue sending Canada’s best and brightest graduates and young professionals to UN and other international Agencies around the world on six-month internships.
No application or administrative fee, however the internships are unpaid, and successful candidates must cover living costs associated with their placement.
Must be a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident.
95% of our JPCs find meaningful work in their field, or return to advanced studies, within four months of completing their internship – acting as a proven bridge to employment.
Internships are typically six-months in length with Agencies such as: UNDP, IOM, UNODC, UNICEF, UNGEI, UN Women, UNHCR.
The majority of UNA-Canada’s internship opportunities require a completed university bachelor degree. A few opportunities require applicants to be currently enrolled at a recognized university, thus 4th year students, may apply knowing there are limited opportunities available. The majority of our successful candidates are current, or graduated, graduate students.
Successful applicants will be deployed in late January/early February 2018 depending on the needs of partner agencies.
DEADLINE TO APPLY EXTENDED TO 12 SEPTEMBER 2017 AT 11:59 P.M. EST.
