Internships at UNICEF UK

Whether you're studying, retired or between jobs, taking on an internship with UNICEF UK is a great way to make a real difference to the lives of children around the world.

As a charity, we regularly recruit voluntary interns to support teams within UNICEF UK. These volunteer internships usually last between two and six months and are based at our offices in London. Our current voluntary opportunities are displayed below.

Please note that UNICEF UK does not recruit for volunteers to work overseas. For information about voluntary opportunities overseas, visit the UNICEF International website or find out how you can help in an emergency. For more information, read our internship Q&A.
