Role requirements:

A student with interest in marketing/communications and/or experience in organizing events is preferred. A legal background is not necessary but can be useful. The intern will work in English and French and should ideally  have oral and written skills in both languages. Strong attention to detail and a rigorous attitude to work is necessary.

Eligibility Conditions

The candidate needs to still be registered as a student during the time of the internship. Recent graduates who are not anymore enrolled in an educational program are therefore not eligible for an internship at the ICC. He/she (if national from outside the European Union or Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Andorra, Monaco, or Switzerland) should get an appropriate visa from a French consulate.

 Important Information

Interns in Paris will receive an allowance. However interns are required to handle and pay for their own travel and accommodation arrangements for the duration of their stay. Unfortunately scholarship cannot be granted by the ICC.

Internship is full-time (however a few hours’ classes during the week are accepted). The average working week is 35 hours.
