Joining our team will enable you to transfer the skills you have learned in the classroom to a professional environment and bring you in direct contact with a network of inspiring women grassroots activists.

About the Internship:

Your internship will be centred around administrative tasks (up to ~30%) and communications tasks related to our membership (up to ~70%), counting both our National Sections and our international members.

As the Membership and Office Management Intern, you will be deeply involved in the day-to-day office management, but also in strengthening our membership and maintaining internal contacts. Your tasks will include the following:

  • Have some experience in the area of administration/event management
  • Be interested in learning, or already familiar with, web editing (esp. WordPress);
  • Be service minded, but also able to say no and move on with your prioritised tasks;
  • Be able to think independently and take responsibility;
  • Be fluent in English and with at least work proficiency in French;
  • Have advanced skills in Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint and Excel), knowledge of Photoshop and InDesign is a plus;
  • Share WILPF’s values and goals.


The full-time internship will be from beginning of October 2018 to end of March 2019. You will work closely with our International Office Manager and our Membership Coordinator, who will also be your supervisors.

WILPF is a member of the “We Pay Our Interns” initiative, which means that we pay a gross monthly stipend of 900 CHF. The full-time internship is based in Geneva, Switzerland.
