Interns are entrusted with increasingly independent tasks. We seek individuals with a responsible, follow-up approach. The UNHCR External Relations office for Western Europe is also strengthening its use of social media and videos, for which the interns are key contributors.
We continuously innovate with new projects. Interns participate in meetings; their creative ideas, technical knowhow and other contributions are highly valued.
Some of our projects’ end results are visible on our website unhcr.be, in which the interns play a key role in updating.
