Internship – Global Events (Paris)
ICC is looking for an intern for the Global Events team, which organises conferences, trainings and colloquia for ICC Disputes Resolution Services, including the ICC International Court of Arbitration and the ICC Institute of World Business Law. The opportunity is for a student wishing to complement their studies with practical experience in an international organisation.
As the institutional representative of over 45 million businesses in more than 170 countries, the International Chamber of Commerce operates with a core mission to “make business work for everyone, every day, everywhere”.
We act as the primary voice of the real economy in a range of intergovernmental organisations – from the World Trade Organisation to the UN climate process – championing the needs of local business in global decision making.
The convening power of our global network enables us to set rules and standards that facilitate over $10 trillion dollars in trade each year – as well as providing tailored products and digital services that directly address the real challenges faced by businesses operating internationally.
We also provide the world’s premier private global dispute resolution services, leveraging ICC’s unique independence, integrity, and expertise.
The International Chamber of Commerce’s Global Events team manages the planning and execution of ICC’s various events, including those of ICC Dispute Resolution Services, ICC Global Policy and the ICC Centres of Entrepreneurship. This internship is within the part of the team that organises conferences, trainings and colloquia for ICC Disputes Resolution Services, including the ICC International Court of Arbitration and the ICC Institute of World Business Law. The opportunity is for a student wishing to complement their studies with practical experience in an international organisation.
