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 approximately one month in JOA’s office in St Helier, before transferring to the partner NGO’s international HQ. 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, for the duration of the internship.

To find out what you could be involved with, check out the blogs of JOA’s current interns to see what they have been doing!
