About Commonwealth Foundation Graduate Internship Programme

Our Graduate Internship Programme offers placements for recent graduates across the Foundation’s programme areas. Responsibilities depend on the area of placement and the intern’s own capacities. Typically they will include project work, research, preparation of briefing papers, and provision of logistical and administrative support.

 

We currently have three internship vacancies throughout the Foundation. Interns recruited under this call can be expected to work in a range of areas including communications; event management; and partner relations.

 

The Foundation prioritises professional development of its interns: encouraging them to participate in both internal and external learning opportunities and to rotate between programme areas to broaden their knowledge and skills. Before they move on from the Foundation, our interns are provided with support in interview skills and CV development, as well as networking contacts.

 

The organisation

 

The Commonwealth Foundation is an international intergovernmental organisation established by Heads of Government in support of the belief that the Commonwealth is as much an association of peoples as it is of governments.

 

It is the Commonwealth agency for civil society; a unique, stand-alone organisation established by, funded by, and reporting to governments.

 

The Foundation is dedicated to strengthening people’s participation in all aspects of public dialogue, to act together and learn from each other to build democratic societies. To that end it works to:

 

* Support the active and constructive participation of Commonwealth citizens in all aspects of their governance

* Nurture the growth of vibrant and free civil societies in all Commonwealth countries

* Advance the principles and ideals of the Commonwealth.

 

The person

 

The individuals should have excellent research skills, administrative skills and ideally have a knowledge of the development arena. Capacity and experience in the use of technology is paramount and knowledge in Microsoft Office and online platforms will be required.

 

We work together to promote a welcoming and inclusive environment, which attracts a wide range of candidates and reflects our commitment to celebrating and promoting diversity.
