SPONTANEOUS APPLICATIONS/INTERNSHIPS/VOLUNTEERSHIPS

We receive on a daily basis a very large number of spontaneous applications and requests for internships/volunteerships. We thank you for your interest in working with IUCN but, unfortunately, we are unable to respond favourably to all your queries.

Regarding spontaneous applications, our current vacant positions are advertised in our vacancies page (this page), or published in national and regional newspapers. We therefore encourage you to apply only for an advertised position. Nevertheless, should you have specific competencies in areas relevant to IUCN, you should send your spontaneous application as follows:

  1. Target as much as possible your request, taking into account the area of work
  2. Prepare a motivation/application letter as an attachment to your CV.
  3. Send your application directly to: info-np@iucn.org

Hosting interns or volunteers requires staff and office space capacity. Our limited resources do not allow us to offer unlimited internships or volunteerships. However, if you wish to send an internship/volunteership request, you should follow the same routine as for the submission of a spontaneous application.
