There are no internship opportunities at present.

Our interns play a critical role in helping us achieve human rights impact. The Irish Section intern programme offers work experience for those interested in a career in human rights. Interns form an integral part of our operations, as they bring experience, ideas and a fresh perspective and support and complement the work of paid staff.

Internships are a great way to get hands on experience in certain areas, or on issues that you’re passionate about.

Days and hours are flexible - however interns are required to be in the office for at least 20 hours per week. Interns need to commit to 3-6 months. 

Internships are unpaid. However, Amnesty will pay you a small amount for days you are in the office to cover transport and lunch costs.

The nature of internships means that placements are only offered for defined periods; if you are interested in an ongoing role with Amnesty International Ireland, please visit our volunteering page.

When positions are available they will be advertised on our Internships page.

Due to the high number of applications we receive, we regret that we are unable to answer individual queries in relation to internship opportunities or on the progress of individual applications - please assume that if you have not been contacted within 6 weeks after the closing date that your application has been unsuccessful.

(Please note only applications accompanied by the completed application form and CV will considered).
