Job Title: Remote Graduate Internship in International Development
International development is a popular career destination for many young people. Graduates can be found working in this field in a variety of international Non-Governmental Organisations (INGOs), international organisations, consultancies, think tanks and academic institutions.
Our remote internship offers young graduates opportunity to gain work experience. We share consultancy projects and participants are expected to possess maturity, character, initiative and self-reliance as well as problem solving skills.
Already about 90 million people, roughly half NigeriaТs population live in extreme poverty, according to estimates from the World Data LabТs Poverty Clock. In June 2018, Nigeria overtook India, a country with seven times its population as the worldТs poverty capital. Also, the COVID-19 outbreak is forcing multiple relief and development organizations to limit travel and rethink operations.
This calls for the training of a new generation of young development practitioners to fight extreme poverty through evidence-based research and simulated field work.
This programme is delivered remotely across Nigeria. We are an equal opportunity and affirmative organization so women are strongly encouraged to apply to this programme.
