A key responsibility will be to assist with all aspects of COP24 preparation.
Please note that all candidates must be enrolled in an academic institution and must provide a “convention de stage”. Also, non-EU residents are required to have valid legal documents (long-stay student visa and/or carte de séjour).
ICC is the only private sector organisation to have UN Observer Status and is also the UNFCCC Focal Point for business and industry.
The intern will be responsible for assisting in the development, preparation and communication of policy projects and activities across the areas of climate change, environment, sustainable finance and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The ideal candidate will:
- have a relevant university degree;
- be a native or fluent English speaker with excellent writing, analytical and organisational skills;
- have experience that includes both administrative (logistics) and substantive (research, drafting) tasks;
- be a team player who is highly interested in gaining experience in an international policy environment within a dynamic team;
- have strong knowledge of the UN system and, in particular, the UNFCCC;
- have outstanding communications and interpersonal skills;
- be able to work autonomously and with little supervision.
Any policy experience would be a plus. Good knowledge of Microsoft Office (Excel, PowerPoint) is a must.
The working language is English. Proficiency in French and/or Polish is an asset.
- Internships are remunerated according to French law. Internships are full-time. The average working week is 35 hours.
- A convention de stage established between ICC and the intern’s university or institute of origin is compulsory (French Act n° 2006-396 of 31 March 2006). An application without a memorandum of agreement (“convention de stage”) will not be considered.
- The intern must have an appropriate insurance valid in France for any damage caused to a third party (third party liability insurance: “assurance responsabilité civile”) and a social insurance (illness, work accident…)
- Nationals from outside the European Union or Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Andorra, Monaco, or Switzerland are required to get an appropriate visa from the French consulate.
