Internship - sme development and entrepreneurship promotion

The ILO values diversity. We welcome applications from qualified women and men, including those with disabilities. Applications from non- or under-represented member States would be particularly welcome.
You are applying to the ILO generic internship roster, which is published several times per year. The roster will be made available to all departments which will then select and directly contact suitable candidates only.
An internship with the ILO provides an opportunity to:
(a) Increase understanding of relevant issues at the international level by involving them directly in the work of the Office and the application of ILO principles, programmes and strategies;
(b) Gain practical work experience with the ILO directly related to their field of studies.
The internship programme is not intended to lead to a career in the ILO. There should be no expectation of further employment at the end of the internship.
Description of Duties
The Small Enterprise Programme of the ILO seeks to create more and better jobs in small businesses - a sector where the bulk of employment is being provided. The programme works with governments, social partners, the private sector and individuals, on improving the business environment, delivering entrepreneurship education and training, integrating small entrepreneurs into local and global value chains, and improving workplace practices.
As part of long term programmes or under time-limited technical cooperation projects funded, ILO SEED undertakes and supports specialised research, as well as national-level development interventions. SEED staff based in Geneva can, therefore, be involved in a range of work: providing technical guidance and support to country offices; research (analysis, syntheses, design, writing and coordination), the coordination of TC projects or national-level programme activities; monitoring progress towards delivery against objectives and reporting; facilitating knowledge sharing.
Within SEED, there are six key focus areas:
  • Enabling Environment for Sustainable Enterprises
  • Women's Entrepreneurship Development
  • Entrepreneurship Education
  • Entrepreneurship and SME Management Training
  • Value Chain Development
  • Sustainable and Responsible Workplaces
As an intern with SEED, you are likely to be appointed to work within one focus area, and will have the chance to extend your knowledge and experience in this area by working alongside and in cooperation with appropriate ILO specialist staff. In addition, the internship will provide a chance to hone applied desk research and data analysis skills.
SEED is a dynamic unit that values information sharing and joint working. So while you may beworking on one specific focus area, you are likely to be exposed to others. The intern can, therefore, expect to become involved in unit tasks outside of his/her specialist area, thereby gaining wider insights into the workings of the unit and the ILO, and learning about the importance of cross-cutting issues, including gender.
Interns should expect to devote 10% to 20% of their time to administrative tasks.
Required Qualifications
EducationArea of studies: business, communications, economics, international relations, labour relations, international development, social sciences or other related field.
Applicant should currently follow a course of study (last year of Master degree or above), or have completed studies within 12 months prior to this application.
ExperienceSome relevant work or internship experience required.Studies or work experience in one or more of the following fields would be an advantage: micro and small enterprise development, business environment reform, women's entrepreneurship and economic empowerment, youth entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship and SME management training, value chain development, improving working conditions, microfinance, livelihood promotion, gender mainstreaming.LanguagesYou should have working knowledge (both oral and written) of at least one of the ILO's official languages (English, French or Spanish).Strong oral and written English is essential, with a high standard of written English being particularly important. If shortlisted, the candidate's writing ability is likely to be verified through a written test.
Adaptable to an international, multicultural and multilingual environment, good communication skills and be able to work in a team.
Additional Information:
Application process:
**Please note that only three applications per recruitment advertisement period are accepted. If you apply to more than three internship profiles, your application will not be considered for any available vacancies.**
Please complete the online application form, attaching a cover letter. In order to do so, please complete your profile first and submit your application. Then add your cover letter under the section of "my applications". The cover letter needs to be attached to the roster to which you have applied. Please note that applications without a cover letter will not be considered. The more you can be specific about what you are interested in, the easier it will be for the departments to match their needs with your profile. Please also indicate your availability (e.g. proposed start date and latest possible end date).
Following a first screening by the Human Resources Development Department (HRD), departments will short-list applicants. You will be directly contacted should an internship match your specific profile.
If you have not been contacted by any department within three-four months after your application, you can consider that your profile has not been picked by any department for this roster. Departments will use the roster for internships starting within the next 4 months.
Please note internships start on the 1st or 15th of any month for a minimum duration of three months and a maximum duration of six months.
Please only apply for an internship if you fulfil the following three criteria:
(1) You have no close relative serving in the ILO.
(2) This is your first internship with the ILO (only one internship is permitted).
(3) You are currently following a course of study (last year of Master degree or above), or have completed studies within 12 months prior to this application.
(4) You have working knowledge (both oral and written) of at least one of the ILO's official languages (English, French or Spanish).
You should ideally receive funding for your internship through an institution (for example you university/sending institution or a foundation), to cover your subsistence expenses (in Geneva estimated at 1,850 Sfr per months). However, if this is not provided, you will receive a stipend to cover living expenses. Your travel to the duty station would be at your own expense.
Please note that the ILO does not take responsibility for any costs arising from accidents and/or illness incurred during the internship. You will be responsible for your own insurance coverage for illness and accidents for the duration of the internship.

Join the largest transport technology programme in Europe!
Can you lead the development of a European IT security framework for railways? And are you ready for an international career? Then here is a great opportunity for you.

You will be working for the Signalling Programme in Banedanmark and posted in Brussels to lead the IT security aspects of ERTMS. ERTMS is being implemented across Europe, and the results of your work are essential to the Danish Signalling Programme as well as other ambitious ERTMS programmes in Europe.

Unique and highly influential position - based in Brussels

After an introduction period of app. 3 months in Copenhagen, you will be based in Brussels for approximately 3 years. In Brussels you will join about 10 colleagues in the ERTMS Users Group offices and cooperate with experts from all over Europe. ERTMS Users Group is a European Economic Interest group established in 1995 representing the major ERTMS projects in the development of common European Signalling standards (more info at http://www.ertms.be). 

As a part of ERTMS, a European IT security framework governs and protects ERTMS and its supporting IT and telecom systems. The IT security framework is continuously evolved and standardised in a joint effort between the national railways, large international ERTMS vendors, the European ERTMS regulation bodies and several other stakeholders. 

In order to ensure acceptable protection and interoperability across Europe, the relevant stakeholders need to align on governance, process, technology, awareness and training. 

You will be in a unique and highly influential position to drive this process, which will challenge your technical competence and leadership capabilities. Your authority and ability to use and demonstrate your deep insight into IT security will be essential to unite the stakeholders and to achieve consensus. 

Your success will also depend on your ability to explain and justify IT security requirements to executives, political decision makers etc.

Lead security working groups

As our IT Security Lead you drive the process to refine and implement the strategic objectives of the ERTMS Users Group. Your tasks include leading and facilitating working group meetings with highly complex stakeholder structures and representing the ERTMS Users Group in European forums. Furthermore you are responsible for the technical specifications and all other documentation needed for the development of the European IT security framework for ERTMS based signalling.

Experienced IT security professional

You must have experience with IT security management for critical business – preferably within a safety related sector. You master the application of information security standards and guidelines such as ISA99/IEC 62443, Common Criteria, NIST etc. Furthermore, experience with COTS security concepts and protocols like PKI and TLS will be an advantage. 

You are technically well-founded in order to lead discussions of the technical setup. At the same time, you are a highly skilled negotiator and you can lead meetings effectively - with a pragmatic approach. You network easily and manage to build strong relations to important stakeholders.

Performance culture in a healthy company

At Banedanmark we provide the foundation that makes it possible for trains to operate in Denmark. We are owned by the Danish State and part of the Ministry of Transportation. Our 2,200 dedicated employees work every day to ensure passengers get an attractive and reliable journey. At the same time, we develop the railway net to meet future needs. 

Working at Banedanmark, you will be involved in assignments that affect many people every day and are highly significant to society in general. We have ambitious goals, professional challenges and high expectations. We give you room to be actively involved in creating results.

Assistant Economist (Econometrics)

CMA - Competition and Markets Authority

London, United Kingdom

£29,405 - £35,147
The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is a newly created organisation that promotes fair competition, within and outside the UK, to support economic growth and protect the best interests of consumers and businesses. Our work is complex and compelling and can benefit the lives of everyone in the UK – and for those who join us at this formative time it offers a uniquely exciting professional opportunity.
We currently have opportunities for two talented individuals to join our econometrics team, which undertakes econometric analysis for teams working on competition and consumer cases as well as research and evaluation projects. These are varied roles where you’ll work across the full range of projects the CMA undertakes (e.g. mergers, market studies, competition and consumer enforcement cases, and regulatory appeals). These roles offer an exceptional opportunity to gain experience in the wide range of work carried out by the CMA, developing a deep understanding of competition economics and quantitative techniques used in the field.
We expect that you’ll be degree qualified (with a significant emphasis on econometrics) potentially enhanced by a post-graduate qualification and that you have an excellent understanding of a range of econometric techniques. Practical experience of implementing these in a competition or consumer setting would be a considerable advantage, but isn’t considered to be essential. You should offer a blend of strong analysis and reporting skills and be able to advise and support non-technical colleagues and audiences, even when communicating complex information. A good understanding of industrial organisation and competition economics will be key.
