There are over 100,000 dedicated professionals working in international organisations such as the UN, the European Commission, the World Bank, IMF, regional development banks and global funds.

Who the International Organisations Are and How They Recruit
There are over 200 international organisations employing over 100,000 staff. Some, including the UN and its agencies, advertise all vacancies to both internal and external candidates. In other organisations, such as the European Commission, vacancies are only open to permanent staff, who are recruited through centrally-organised competitions.
More information about recruitment processes
Short-term work experience opportunities and internships
Many organisations run work-experience or internship programmes for current or recent graduates. These are usually, but not always, unpaid, and run for between 6 weeks and 6 months.
Some organisations offer training programmes for young graduates. In the World Bank these are known as Junior Professionals or Associates, while in the UN agencies these are known as Junior Professional Officers. These are paid positions lasting typically for 1-3 years. Although these can sometimes lead to permanent employment, this is not guaranteed.
More information about apprenticeships
Young professional programmes
Several organisations, including the UN, World Bank, and IMF, recruit high calibre graduates through their young professional programmes. The exact entry requirements vary by organisation, but applicants must typically be aged 34 years or younger, and some organisations require a masters degree or equivalent in a relevant discipline. Unlike the apprenticeships, mentioned above, these programmes usually lead to permanent employment for those who pass the probationary period.
More information about the young professional programmes
Volunteering is one way of gaining experience in the field and, for mid-career professionals can provide a stepping stone for a career in development expertise.
Some institutions, such as the EC, hold centrally-managed recruitment competitions. These are usually highly competitive and include several stages of examinations and interviews.

This August Education Ministers from across the Commonwealth are meeting in Mauritius to discuss the global education agenda at the 18th Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers (18CCEM).
Held in the wings of the Education Ministers’ conference, the Stakeholders’ Forum (27-31 August) is a major international education conference which brings together delegates from all education stakeholder groups – business, government, academia, civil society, and the development and donor communities.
On the last day of the Stakeholders’ Forum a Statement is presented to Education Ministers. The aim of the Statement is to give a voice to civil society working in education and enable them to represent their views and recommendations to Ministers. It is expected that the Stakeholders’ Statement will contribute to the education ministerial agenda both within the Commonwealth and globally.
We want to hear from you
We want the Stakeholders’ Statement to reflect the views of civil society from across the Commonwealth. A draft Stakeholders’ Statement has been written by a committee of civil society representatives working in education and development in the Commonwealth. Now it’s your turn: we are holding a public consultation on the draft text until 5 August. We want to hear from you.
The consultation will run until 5 August. It is a public consultation open to everyone across the Commonwealth.
