What are the requirements?

  • Strong interest in climate change issues;
  • Ability to effectively communicate in written and spoken English;
  • University degree, preferably in a related field;

  • Strong interpersonal skills;
  • Intermediate to advanced knowledge of: Microsoft Office, Google Drive, Drupal CMS, Social Media and Skype;

How long will the internship last?
The length of the placement is dependent upon tasks and projects, and may last anywhere from a few months to a year, in either a full or part-time capacity. Unless specified in the announcement, CAN will take into account the availability of the applicant, together with the current need of the Secretariat.

Are the Internships paid?
Typically, our Internships are unpaid. CAN will, however, cover specific work related costs, such as travel to CAN events, if required.

What will I get out of the program?
CAN is the biggest climate network in the world and working within the CAN Secretariat has many benefits including:

  • Gaining experience in working on an international level with globally diverse colleagues;
  • Building skills and knowledge in the areas of climate change (science/policy/advocacy/etc), UNFCCC processes, and other climate fora;
  • Making new acquaintances and new connections with NGOs and colleagues from around the world;
  • Experience working in a supportive and collaborative remote environment; 

CAN will evaluate the work of interns in the middle and at the end of the program. Based on the results shown, CAN may issue a recommendation letter to the intern upon conclusion of the placement.

How can I apply?
If you are interested in participating in a CAN Internship, please send your CV and covering letter with details about your experience, why are you interested in participating, and what area you are interested in working in, to cruell@climatenetwork.org. Candidates will be contacted with further details regarding current availability.
