About this sector

International Organisations have international membership, scope, or presence and can be divided into two main types.

Intergovernmental Organisations (IOs), also known as international governmental organisations (IGOs) are made up primarily of member states. Examples include the United Nations (UN), Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), Council of Europe (CoE), European Union (EU), and World Trade Organization (WTO).

International Non-Governmental Organisations (INGOs), non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that operate internationally, include bodies such as the World Organization of the Scout Movement, International Committee of the Red Cross and Médecins Sans Frontières.

The information below covers IGOs. For more information on INGOS, see our information on ‘International Development’ and ‘Charities’.

Types of job

Given the diversity of the organisations in this sector, career opportunities are wide-ranging and cover a tremendous number of issue areas, themes and professions. Jobs can be technical, field-based, policy-based, strategic, or administrative – just as they are within the UK’s civil service and within many more commercial organisations. You could be a lawyer, medic, accountant, police officer, soldier, economist, conflict specialist, negotiator, water and sanitation specialist, nutritionist, or logistician… in fact the list is nearly endless!

Most entry-level positions require a number of years’ experience and openings for graduates at the start of their careers are relatively rare. The high level of interest in employment opportunities in this sector leads to competitive entry standards, particularly as there are normally quotas for nationals of different member countries. Knowing how to navigate the opportunities that do exist and planning how best to access them, through building and marketing your skills effectively, is essential.

Entry points

International organisations typically require a relevant postgraduate degree and a few years of pertinent professional work experience, as well as fluency in English and at least one other language. Some of the larger organisations also set an upper age limit for entry-level posts. Certain international organisations operate fixed contract ‘Young Professional’ type schemes, or ‘Junior Professional Officer’ programmes available via your Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Below are a few examples of such schemes.

United Nations (UN)

The UN recruits into a number of occupational groups, as and when required. Examples of these include:

• Administration
• Demography
• Economics
• Finance
• Human Rights
• Information Technology
• Language and Related Work
• Legal Affairs and Related Work
• Public Information
• Radio Producers
• Security
• Social Affairs
• Statistics
• Web Designer / Developer

Core staff from eligible countries – based on the requirements of the UN quota system of representation – are initially recruited for junior posts at P/2 level of entry through the Young Professionals Programme (YPP) Examination (formerly the National Competitive Recruitment Examination [NCRE]). Applicants should be 32 or younger on 31st December of the year of the exam, a national of a country participating that year, and hold a first degree relevant to the occupational group to which they are applying by the time they submit their application – no other experience is required. More information can be found on the YPP website.

Examinations for language positions are held on a more ad hoc basis. Candidates for translator positions are required to translate from at least two of the six official UN languages (English, French, Arabic, Chinese, Russian and Spanish). Interpreters are required to interpret simultaneously into one of the official languages and must have full auditory comprehension of at least two others. See the Career Briefing on ‘Translating and Interpreting’ for more details.

More senior ‘entry’ level P/3 posts with the UN require an advanced university degree and five years or more professional experience relevant to the job for which you are applying. For mid-career and senior level positions, progressively responsible work experience is required. Individual bodies within the UN system each have their own recruitment notices that can be accessed via their specific websites.

The Junior Professional Officer (JPO) Programme is administered by the JPO Service Centre (JPOSC) for the following organisations:

United Nations Development Programme and its affiliated funds/programmes:

  • United Nations Capital Development Fund
  • United Nations Development Operations Coordination Office
  • United Nations Volunteers
  • United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women
  • Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS
  • United Nations Population Fund
  • United Nations Industrial Development Organization
  • United Nations Institute for Training and Research
  • United Nations Office for Project Services
  • United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East
  • United Nations System Staff College
  • United Nations University
  • Universal Postal Union
  • World Health Organization

The JPO Programme offers one-year contracts that are normally renewed for a second (and in some cases a third) year. Whilst a small number of JPOs do continue to serve within the UN system, the aim of the programme is not to provide long-term careers within the UN, but exposure to the co-operative work of the divisions. Typically, applicants should be 32 or under, have a Masters (or equivalent) degree relevant to the work of the department, possess relevant work experience in a developing country (one to two years minimum), and be fluent in written and spoken English and at least one other UN language.

Individual divisions have their own criteria for applications so check carefully with those in which you are interested. Salaries are equivalent to those of entry-level professional staff in the relevant division. The governments of participating donor countries generally sponsor applicants, and applications should normally be made through your Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Some donor governments also sponsor JPOs from developing countries. The JPO Service Centre website contains further information.

The World Bank Group

The World Bank Group is not a ‘bank’ in the common sense, but an international organization owned and managed by more than 180 member countries – borrowers, lenders and donors. Together they set the Bank’s policies and oversee operations. All Bank Group efforts are coordinated with a wide range of partners, including government agencies, non-governmental organizations, other aid agencies and the private sector. The Bank is also not a single organization, but five agencies working together:

  • The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development – IBRD
  • The International Development Association – IDA
  • The International Finance Corporation – IFC
  • The Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency – MIGA
  • The International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes – ICSID

The Bank has several entry schemes, depending upon the level of experience required. Some of these are described below and for more information see The World Bank website.

The World Bank Group Young Professionals Program (YPP) offers a two-year initial assignment normally involving several trips to developing countries, as well as numerous training activities and policy-related discussions. Competition is keen: there are 8,000-10,000 applications each year for a limited number of positions, and most of the candidates exceed the minimum criteria.

European Union

The EU institutions employ over 40,000 people from the 28 EU member countries. The European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO) organizes ‘open competitions’ to select permanent staff. Each year there are competitions for administrators, linguists, interpreters, translators, secretaries and other staff categories.

EPSO recruits staff for all the EU institutions:

  • European Commission – based in Brussels (Belgium) and Luxembourg. The Commission is the largest employer among the EU institutions, with staff in Europe and offices around the world. A number of specialized posts are available, for example for people with a background in science, languages or statistics/economics.
  • European Parliament – based in Brussels, Luxembourg and Strasbourg (France).
  • Council of the EU – based in Brussels.
  • European Court of Justice – based in Luxembourg.
  • Court of Auditors – based in Luxembourg.
  • European Economic and Social Committee – based in Brussels.
  • Committee of the Regions – based in Brussels.
  • European Ombudsman – based in Strasbourg.
  • European Data Protection Supervisor – based in Brussels.

Whichever institution you are interested in, the selection procedure and type of contract are the same. Permanent officials are divided into administrators and assistants. Administrators are typically involved in drafting policies and monitoring the implementation of EU law, analyzing and advising. In general, to apply for an administrator competition, you must have completed (at least) three years of university. Assistants usually work in supporting roles and are crucial for the internal management of the institutions. In general, to apply for an assistant competition, you must have completed (at least) secondary school.

More information can be found on the Europa website.

OECD

The OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) Young Professionals Programme is designed to bring entry-level professionals with diverse backgrounds into the organization. Applicants should have a Masters or DPhil  in an OECD-relevant field, as well as a minimum of 2 years’ full time professional experience in a related field.

For more information see the OECD: Young Professionals Programme.

Skills & experience

A passion for working towards the achievement of international co-operation, peace, justice and human rights is key to thriving in this sector. In addition, and just as importantly, you need to offer practical skills, specific knowledge and experience, evidencing that you are flexible in sometimes less than ideal situations, able to work effectively in a multi-national and multi-cultural setting, can cope with unpredictability, re-adjust after setbacks, make tough decisions and display leadership in challenging circumstances.

Obtaining a job in an international organisation usually involves a combination of postgraduate study, experience, skills and networking. Research the area and group of organisations within which you want to work, consider what kind of role you want to undertake and work backwards to plan milestones and your immediate next steps. You may well also re-define and re-focus along the way.

Talk to people (contacts, alumni, colleagues, tutors, supervisors) – who are already working in a field within which you might want to specialise, or who may know people who are in that field. If you are planning a thesis, already writing one, or undertaking research, think about how this may relate to your future aspirations.

Specialist qualifications

Consider sharpening your specialist qualifications in a field appropriate to the direction in which you would like your career to develop. You might think, for example, of (development) economics in preparation for the International Monetary Fund or the World Bank; conflict resolution for UNDP; forced migration studies for UNHCR, or physics research for the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN). The Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex, the University of East Anglia, the London School of Economics and School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) and King’s College (University of London), Manchester University, Cambridge University, and the Department of International Development, and Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford all offer well-regarded courses.

Funding can be hard to come by, but there are a very limited number of studentships made available by the ESRC (Economic & Social Research Council) each year for Home and EC students and some are offered by the institutions themselves. Non-EC students should check any schemes available through their governments.

International experience

It is generally felt that it is better to gain some relevant international experience before undertaking postgraduate study. This will not only help you to identify/clarify which direction you wish to pursue, but will also help you to choose the most appropriate course and to get the most out of your studies. Look at the Career Briefings on ‘International Development’ and ‘Charities’ for further resources about how to gain such experience.

Other skills

Develop additional language skills. English and French are the working languages of the UN Secretariat and its official languages are English, French, Arabic, Chinese, Russian and Spanish. The EU has 24 official languages

Tailoring your CV

Whether you are looking to start building experience in this sector or already have some directly relevant experience to market, tailoring your CV is crucial. Potential employers need to see that you have an understanding of, passion for and ability to thrive in their organisation and in the role advertised, or that you are applying for speculatively.

Highlight the skills outlined above that you have already gained in your degree – what are the most relevant modules you have taken or transferable skills you have built? How have these skills been further developed outside of your degree, through roles in societies, student editorial work, freelance consultancy, travel, previous work experience and internships, etc.? Are you doing all you can in the way you phrase the bullet points in your CV to convey the research, communication, team-work, problem-solving, numerical, regional, thematic or other interests you know that organisation values?

Internships

An internship or some form of work experience ‘in the field’ is often a crucial addition to your CV when applying for jobs with international organisations. Examples of advertised, structured programmes include:

UK Civil Service

For further information, please see our briefing on Government & Public Admin. You can apply for paid work experience during Easter and summer holidays in a government department or agency. Closing dates vary, so, if you have an interest in a particular department, it’s advisable to visit the Civil Service website or contact the relevant department’s Human Resources team.

British Council

The UK’s international cultural relations organization offers work and volunteer opportunities abroad. See British Council Internships.

European Union (EU)

Traineeship schemes or ‘stages’ are offered by some of the institutions of the European Community, most popularly by the Commission in Brussels (since it was set up in 1960 it has recruited more than 25,000 ‘stagiaires’ or trainees from 65 countries; every year some 1,200 people are taken on as paid interns), but also by the Court of Auditors, the Court of Justice, the Economic and Social Committee, and the Council of the European Union. Stages are short-term (three to five months long) and are for those under 30 who have recently graduated and can offer a second European language at A-Level standard. The European Parliament offers about 600 internships every year, but not all posts are paid. The European Parliament launched a specific traineeship programme for people with disabilities in 2006.

For further information see European Stages.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO)

NATO introduced its Internship Programme in 2004 to provide a small number of current or recent students with the opportunity to intern with the International Staff at NATO Headquarters in Brussels.

For further information see: NATO Internships.

United Nations

The UN offers internships of varying lengths in both  New York and Geneva. These internships are unpaid and most are open to applicants who are are either currently studying or recently graduated.  see United Nations: Internships.

Many other UN offices, funds and programmes also offer internship schemes, generally for those with, or studying for, postgraduate qualifications. Check the websites of individual UN organisations for further details.

The United Nations Volunteers Programme

The UN Volunteers Programme offers a variety of ways in which people can volunteer either at home or internationally, including very flexible ‘online volunteering’, but does not offer short-term international practical assignments for students. For further information see the United Nations Volunteers Programme.

International Monetary Fund (IMF)

The Fund Internship offers 10-12 week paid internships per year to PhD and Master’s students, For further information see IMF Summer Internships.

World Bank Group

Runs summer and winter paid internship programmes for students currently enrolled on a relevant full-time Master’s of PhD programme. For further information see World Bank Jobs.

World Health Organisation (WHO)

The World Health Organisation offers six-week to three-month unpaid internships to students (age 20+) studying in a health-related field (although other disciplines will be considered as appropriate), enrolled in a degree programme in a graduate school (second university degree or higher) both at the time of application and during the internship. For further information see WHO Internships.

World Trade Organisation (WTO)

The WTO offers a range of internships across the globe  For further information and details see WTO Trainee Programmes.

Other opportunities

Every year there are a number of international and UK-based internships offered through the Internship Programme at the Careers Service.

As well as advertised positions, if you are proactive and network effectively it is also possible to create an opportunity through alumni contacts, or through tutors or colleagues who have contacts within organisations.

Advice on Work Experience in the UK

There is often confusion about whether you should be paid to do an internship or work experience. It will depend on your arrangement with the employer and also the status of the employer. To find out if you are entitled to be paid when undertaking work experience or an internship, visit the Government’s webpages on the National Minimum Wage.

Emerging scholars global policy prize competition

Posted on behalf of Perry World House - University of Pennsylvania. Blogged by Abby Evans on 25/03/2019.

Applications for the inaugural Perry World House Emerging Scholars Global Policy Prize are now open.

This $10,000 prize seeks to encourage scholars to translate their own academic work to be more accessible to policymakers in positions of influence and to advance policy debates on significant issues in global affairs. The prize recognises original essays (3,000-5,000 words long) intended for a policy audience that draw on rigorous academic scholarship, clearly lay out a global policy challenge, and describe a novel path forward to address it.

Up to three prizes will be awarded in the inaugural cycle – one in each of Perry World House’s two research themes and one in a general category covering any area of global policy. Perry World House’s two research themes are:

  • The Future of the Global Order: Power, Technology and, Governance – this theme examines the implications of changing global power dynamics, impacts of new technologies, and contributions of governance institutions for the future of international cooperation. It seeks to understand the drivers of change and the varied implications of those changes.
  • Global Shifts: Urbanization, Migration, and Demography – this theme considers the causes and consequences of human movements, ranging from the drivers of displacement including conflict and climate change, to the implications of demographic shifts. This theme examines policy responses to these challenges, such as city leadership, sustainable urbanization, and new forms of international governance cooperation.

Eligibility is open to emerging scholars from around the world. This includes junior faculty, postdocs, and advanced graduate students. (Tenured faculty are not eligible.) Other scholars are eligible to apply if they completed the relevant terminal degree in their field of study in 2013 or after. One submission will be accepted per person.

Each winner will receive an award of $10,000. In consultation with each prize winner, Perry World House will work to have the piece published or publish it ourselves. The winners will also be invited to present their research at Perry World House during the 2019-2020 academic year.

Applications are due on 1 May 2019. For more information, click here.

FCO Graduate Internship: An Insider’s View

Blogged by Hugh Nicholson-Lailey on 21/02/2019.

Alice graduated from Oxford last summer and has provided us with an insider’s perspective on the FCO’s Graduate Internship which we blogged earlier this week and is now open for applications.

The scheme

The FCO graduate internship is a paid work experience scheme of up to 9 months which allows recent graduates to get taste for FCO work. What you will do on a day-to-day basis depends on which department you are allocated to – you could be working on a country desk, on a particular theme or in an operational role.

See the job advert [#1617790] and note that the deadline is midnight on 11 March.

Why I applied

I applied because of my interest in international affairs and desire to work in public service. This internship is a great way get an insight into the FCO/the civil service more generally without being tied down. For those interested in the Fast Stream, doing well at this internship gets you a ‘fast pass’ to the Fast Stream Assessment Centre, skipping the online tests that often cause people difficulty.

A day in the life

I have had some great opportunities so far. My day job involves conducting research, engaging with stakeholders within the FCO and in other government departments to make practical assessments about a varied and fascinating geographical area. I have taken on a lot of responsibility, writing policy submissions to ministers, working on FOI requests and running presentations to external stakeholders. My team are really friendly and keen for me to make the most of development opportunities – this is a work experience scheme after all! I have gained an insight into what working for the FCO overseas is like by visiting a British Embassy, been to see EU institutions in action and volunteered as a delegation liaison officer at an international conference. I have also had lots of formal training on diplomatic skills and am doing developmental Spanish language training.

My tips

The application/interview process has changed this year, and now focuses on success profiles and behaviours rather than competencies. You can find information on these in the job advert. The most import thing is to really tailor your examples to the question asked. If you make it on to the internship, be proactive – think about what you would like to get out of the internship and take the opportunity to meet as many people and take on as many tasks as possible.
