ISHR’s internship program provides a wide range of opportunities for students and recent graduates who intend to work in an NGO and in the field of human rights.

ISHR recruits all year long and interns participate in ISHR's work in both Geneva and New York.

An ISHR internship offers a unique opportunity to learn about the workings of the international human rights system and the functioning of a human rights NGO. An internship will increase your understanding of current human rights issues at the international, regional and national levels. It will also enable you to develop your skills and competencies for future employment in the human rights sector. Last but not least, as an ISHR intern you can expect to be part of a vibrant and cheerful team that loves socialising – see here for an example of a recent activity initiated and produced by a Geneva interns’ team.

We offer full-time, four-month internships with the Programme team, and both full- and part-time internships with the Operations teams (Communications, Fundraising, Administration and Finance).
