Jersey Overseas Aid is delighted to offer a unique opportunity for Jersey residents: an annual one-year paid internship.

International development is an incredibly rewarding career, but getting your first job is hard. This exciting new programme will give someone from Jersey the chance to spend 12 months learning the ropes with the professionals, including six months on assignment in a developing country.

You’ll spend a month in JOA’s office in St Helier, before transferring to an international HQ (most likely in London). Following that you’ll be ready for your first field posting, possibly in Asia, Africa or the Middle East. You’ll be paid an entry-level salary, plus travel and accommodation expenses.


Applications for the next position, for commencement in or around September 2018, will be launched in May/June and announced here.

If you have any questions or would like to know more please do not hesitate to contact a member of the JOA team.
