The Global ICT Advisory (GIA) unit of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is part of the Office of Information Management and Technology (OIMT) and it is responsible for supporting UNDP Country Offices around the world with ICT and Green Energy solutions. Our Unit offers a stimulating and versatile internship in an international environment with contact to various partners from some 166 countries with UNDP presence. We are a team who work in a dynamic and informal atmosphere, and we expect our interns to become vital members of the team. As an intern, you will be given tasks and opportunities that have a direct global impact on the development efforts of the international community. The UNDP/OIMT GIA business administrative internship programme enhances the academic life experience of passionate students or interns and empowers them to become socially responsible, innovative, and environmentally conscious leaders of tomorrow. We bridge the gap between textbook learning and real-time industry experience by providing interns with the opportunity to assist in directly liaising with Country Offices and service providers, as well as coordinating procurement, cost recovery and business consolidation work in GIA projects. As an intern in our Unit, you will also gain worldwide connections with other top-talented interns and UN staff from other agencies; our office is located at the UN City in Copenhagen, giving you the opportunity to interact with people outside the UNDP’s GIA unit.
