The International Labour Organization (ILO) Is Hiring Administrative positions In 2024. |Apply Now

Background

You are applying to the ILO generic internship roster, which is published several times per year. The roster will be made available to all departments and field offices, which will then select and directly contact suitable candidates. Due to the high volume of applications we receive, the ILO does not inform candidates about the status of their applications.

ILO Internship Programme provides an opportunity for talented individuals to:

(a) increase understanding of relevant issues at the international level by involving them directly in the work of the Office and the application of ILO principles, programs and strategies;

(b) gain practical experience with the ILO directly related to their field of study.

The internship program is not intended to lead to a career in the ILO. There should be no expectation of further employment at the end of the internship.

Department

The ILO Administrative Tribunal has the role of hearing complaints from serving and former officials of the ILO and of over 50 other international organizations that have recognized its jurisdiction.

The Tribunal is serviced by a Registry, comprising a Registrar and a team of around a dozen legal officers and support staff. The Registry’s secretariat receives the documents submitted in the course of the proceedings and replies to requests for information. While the Tribunal is administratively attached to the ILO and the staff of the Registry is appointed by the Director-General of the ILO, the Registrar operates under the independent supervision of the judges of the Tribunal.

Learning area

As an intern in the ILO Administrative Tribunal, you will be asked to analyze the Tribunal’s case law conduct research, and compile legal materials on international administrative law for use in preparing legal opinions to assist the legal team. You will also be asked to help the Registrar or the members of the Registry as required by the Registrar. You will gain further knowledge of international administrative law and of the Tribunal’s case law.

An intern should expect to devote 10% to 20% of her or his time to administrative tasks.

Education

Applicants should currently be enrolled in the final year of a postgraduate law degree program, or a relevant higher degree program, or have completed such program in the year preceding the internship application; studies of international administrative public law, labor law, or comparative law are required.

The candidate should be enrolled in their final year of a graduate degree program or should have completed such a program no longer than 1 year ago.

Experience

Applicants are not required to have professional work experience but they should:

  • be adaptable to an international, multicultural and multilingual environment;
  • have a demonstrated ability to successfully interact with individuals of different cultural and legal background, and be able to work in a team; 
  • have good research and analytical skills;
  • be computer literate in standard software applications.

Knowledge of international civil service law is an advantage.

How to apply:

1. Search for an internship profile via the page on ILO Jobs 

2. Select the internship profile you would like to apply for, and create a profile on ILO Jobs 

3. Complete your candidate profile and apply to the internship profile

4. Be sure to attach a cover letter in the last section of the application, as applications without a cover letter will not be considered and you cannot attach a cover letter after the deadline. 

Selection process:

Following a first screening by the Human Resources Development Department (HRD), hiring departments will shortlist applicants. You will be directly contacted should an internship opportunity match your profile. If any department has not contacted you within six months after your application, you can consider that any department for this roster has not selected you. If still eligible, you may apply to the next roster. 

If shortlisted, you may be contacted by the hiring department for a written test and/or interview. The ILO may use communication technologies such as Skype, Video or teleconference, e-mail, etc for the assessment and evaluation of candidates.

The ILO does not charge any fee at any stage of the recruitment process whether at the application, interview, processing or training stage. Messages originating from a non ILO e-mail account – @ilo.org – should be disregarded. In addition, the ILO does not require or need to know any information relating to the bank account details of applicants.
