Internships in Germany and abroad
An internship will give you an insight into the diversity of GIZ’s work. We offer internships in departments across the company, both in Germany and abroad.
As a GIZ intern in Germany you will be given specific tasks to carry out on your own under the guidance of a mentor. This will give you an insight into the work GIZ does and allow you to complement your theoretical knowledge with hands-on experience of the working world. Internships normally last between three and six months. In individual cases we might agree to a shorter assignment. Our internships are open to matriculated students and applicants who have graduated within the previous six months.Internships abroad
Our internship programme offers students and graduates the opportunity to work abroad in a GIZ office, project or programme for three to six months. Graduates may only apply within six months of gaining their degree. Why not take this opportunity to work in an intercultural environment and deepen your understanding of sector-specific and regional issues?The aim of the programme is to learn about development cooperation in general and GIZ’s work in its partner countries in particular. Once you have completed your internship, you will write a report on your experiences and any outcomes. You can also use this report as the basis for your dissertation.
Please note that it is unlikely that we will be able to offer you a full-time post at GIZ after your internship.
