Integrity’s Internship Programme
Integrity’s Internship Programme
Integrity’s Internship programme allows talented young graduates to gain hands-on experience into the workings of a dynamic, fast-growing consultancy in the international development sector. Running since 2013, many of our current staff started off as interns, and we pride ourselves on providing a programme that offers substantial learning opportunities as well as real career growth.
As an intern at Integrity, you receive tailored training, guidance, and real responsibility from the beginning, quickly becoming an invaluable team player in our various offices. The programme offers Internship opportunities within different parts of the company, ranging from Research and Project Support, to IT, Finance, Marketing and Communications, and Business Development.
Our internships are paid, based out of our three offices in London, Beirut and Nairobi, and require a full-time commitment of at least three months. To qualify, candidates should preferably have attained an undergraduate degree or other experience, ideally in a business or international studies related field. Keep an eye out on our Careers page of our website and on our LinkedIn page for Internship advertisements and more specific application details.
Lula Dahir interned with Integrity for five months and is now a full-time staff member as Projects Officer Africa. During her internship she worked closely with both the Headquarters and East Africa teams where she provided operational and research support.
“My internship gave me the opportunity to fully understand Integrity’s service lines and Africa portfolio. My role as an intern within the Operations team provided me with the opportunity to support in all aspects of the project cycle: identification, proposal development, implementation and close down.
The highlight of my internship was being involved in a project that contributed to the improvement of research capacity in Africa and the Middle East, fully endorsed by the stakeholders involved. This gave me first-hand experience of what carrying out development projects is all about.
My internship experience was instrumental for my transformation to a full-time member of the core team. I am currently supporting Integrity with projects ranging from monitoring and evaluation of a governance programme to a capacity building of civil society project for a UN agency.”
Will Lowrie was an Intern at Integrity for four months in 2013 before becoming a full-time staff member in Integrity’s Operations team.
“My Integrity internship gave me the opportunity to make real contributions to the company’s portfolio of interesting and diverse projects. I offered operational and research support to M&E and stakeholder engagement projects across MENA, East Africa and Asia. I also worked to improve Integrity’s information management systems.
One of the highlights of my internship was conducting desk-based research and identifying suitable consultants for an assessment of a humanitarian aid distribution programme in MENA. I later helped deliver the project when it was awarded to Integrity.
As an intern I thoroughly enjoyed developing my skills and experience working with Integrity’s talented team. The knowledge I gained is still relevant and valuable every day in my current role as a Senior Data and Knowledge Management Officer”
