15 July 2021 is the last date to apply for this UN Internship. The interns assist in the management of online communications products and activities. And they will work under the direct supervision of the public information associate. Interns will be given the work of research, producing, and scheduling social media content for UNCCD social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn.
The interns will also get a chance to enhance the online presence of UNCCD. This will get to conceptualize and develop infographics and other visuals for the convention’s digital platforms. Fluency in written and spoken English is required for this internship. Candidates knowing other official UN languages (Arabic, Chinese, Spanish, or Russian) will have an edge over other applications.
