The purpose of our Internship Programme is to offer successful candidates an opportunity to improve their skills and enhance their educational experience through practical work assignments while gaining experience of working in an international environment.
Our Internship Programme is open to young people who are 18 years or above, have graduated from high school and are either currently a student or have just completed a course of study before taking up permanent employment. Fluency in English is required. Computing skills, as well as knowledge of British Council work areas, are advantageous.
Interns are responsible for their own living accommodation, visas, transport, personal insurance, etc.
Generally the interns are located in Kyiv. The period of internship would normally be from two to six weeks.
The job plan for interns will depend on the sections they are working in. Some interns research particular projects while others actually help design projects, compiling statistics, media analysis, internet research or helping business as usual. The programme is normally full-time, i.e., interns are expected to work five days a week (09:00–17:30) in particular sections, carrying out their tasks under the supervision of a staff member – the mentor.
Applicants must fill in the application form (DOC, 132 Kb) and send it to email@example.com.
