7 Steps to get a job in the United Nations

UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.

UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.


The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Unit of Information and Technology Management (ITM) in Copenhagen is responsible for supporting UNDP Country Offices around the world with ICT and Green Energy solutions. Our Unit offers a stimulating and versatile internship in an international environment with contact to various partners from some 166 countries with UNDP presence. We are a team who work in a dynamic and informal atmosphere, and we expect our interns to become vital members of the team.

As an intern, you will be given tasks and opportunities that have a direct global impact on the development efforts of the international community. The UNDP ITM internship programme enhances the academic life experience of passionate students as interns and empowers them to become socially responsible, innovative, and environmentally conscious leaders of tomorrow. We bridge the gap between textbook learning and real-life industry experience by taking interns behind the scenes of the worldโ€™s leading clean energy and sustainability initiatives, while learning to take into consideration the local context.

Being a part of our dynamic unit, you will also gain worldwide connections with other top-talented interns and UN staff from other agencies; our office is located at the UN City in Copenhagen, giving you the opportunity to interact with people outside the UNDP ITM Unit.

UNDP ITM Business Operations and Finance interns are part of the Service Delivery team which is the first responder to UNDP Ccountry Officesโ€™ needs and supports ICT and Green Energy projects from a procurement, logistics and finance side. The team works closely with the Copenhagen Uunit and colleagues across the globe to support operations and programme work in some of the most challenging work environments with energy and ICT infrastructure. As part of the Crisis Rresponse Group of the UNDP, this work also serves to support UNDPโ€™s resilience and recovery efforts in the wake of natural disasters.
