The British Embassy in Lima offers an Internship Programme to give individuals with leadership potential in government, business and civil society the opportunity to experience the real working environment of a busy and high profile diplomatic mission.
Both students and recent graduates from Peruvian universities are welcomed to apply as long as they meet the requirements for each position. The internships at The British Embassy in Lima work in three of our departments: UKTI (UK Trade & Investment), Press & Communications and Prosperity (economic development and climate change). The current programme runs for six months, from January to June 2015.
Interns will have ownership of a specific project or area of work, as well as providing assistance across the full range of the team’s work, and will agree a development contract to set out their key development opportunities. At the end of the period the intern’s line manager provides an evaluation of the intern’s performance, and a certificate.
Details on how to apply for an internship are published on our latest news feed. We encourage you to review our postings and submit an application following the instructions in the advert.
If no vacancy is listed it means there are no positions currently available. We can only review CVs submitted for specific advertised internships since we have limited resources to reply, or retain unsolicited applications for employment, and we are only able to respond to those candidates who are selected for further consideration.
