Museum for the United Nations – UN Live is looking for talented, sharp and energetic interns to join our team and help develop a new global museum offering people the opportunity to learn, share, and act based on the values of the UN.

You will be part of a strong and growing team of young, driven professionals, working on creating a new, independent, and global cultural institution for learning, dialogue, and action in an interconnected world. Our core mission is to connect people everywhere to the values and work of the United Nations, and dramatically increase the number of people who are engaged in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. We will do this by inviting people to participate on three mutually enforcing platforms: UN Live Online, the UN Live Network and the UN Live Building.

At UN Live, we help you develop and refine the skillset needed in general project management and to work in communications, while giving you the opportunity to impact the development and activities of a global organization.

Previous interns have secured positions at top-tier consultancy firms such as McKinsey and Dalberg.
