Important note about internships in Geneva
From January 2013 onwards, according to Swiss law, only those with a valid work or student permit for Switzerland can be considered for internship positions in Geneva. Non-Swiss citizens can be issued a short-term work permit only with the proven financial support of a guarantor, who must be resident in Switzerland. Child Rights Connect can therefore only consider potential interns with a valid work or student permit for Switzerland.
Child Rights Connect offers 6-month internships with its Secretariat in Geneva, starting in January and July each year. These are for university students and young graduates that are interested in working on child rights at an international level. Interns become involved in most areas of the Secretariat’s work and are treated as temporary members of our team.
Our internships are advertised both on this website and externally — usually in April and October each year.
Please note that we are not able to respond to unsolicited applications.
Child Rights Connect is proud to be member of the “We pay our interns” initiative.
