Become an OECD Intern

OECD Internship Programme is designed to bring highly qualified and motivated students with diverse backgrounds into the Organisation to work on projects linked to the Strategic Orientations of the Secretary-General and to support the corporate functions of the Organisation. Its main goal is to give successful candidates the opportunity to improve their analytical and technical skills in an international environment.

The Internship Programme is open on an on-going basis. Students enrolled at a fully accredited degree programme (Bachelor, Master, PhD) during the entire duration of their internship can apply online. Selected interns are expected to work remotely until further notice.

When can I apply for an internship?

We recruit interns on an on-going basis and applications are accepted throughout the year. You can apply anytime via our online application platform.

Internship start dates will be set based on your dates of availability and the OECD hiring teams’ schedules: do not forget to specify the date and duration of your availability in the application form.

If your application is not successful, you are welcome to apply again to the next vacancy publication, which appear on the dates below:

  • 1 March 2021
  • 1 September 2021
  • 1 March 2022
  • 1 September 2022

 

  

- Note to applicants


Due to the high volume of applications received, the OECD Internship Office is not in a position to provide individual feedback. Therefore, only shortlisted candidates will be contacted by Directorates for an interview. If you are not contacted by Directorate hiring teams within three months following your application’s submission, you can assume your application has not been retained on this occasion and you can apply again according to the dates provided above. Please remember you will still need to be enrolled as a student during the internship period.
