KM on a dollar a day

Musing on knowledge management, aid and development with limited resources

Come work with us on KM and UN co-ordination!

with 3 comments

We’re looking for good candidates for an internship position with our team (the knowledge management team in the UN Development Operations Co-ordination Office) helping to facilitate (and reinvigorate) the Co-ordination Practice Network (CPN) which is a network/community of practice of UN staff working on UN co-ordination issues. The purpose of CPN is to help connect UN staff in the field who are working on co-ordination with practical peer-support in doing their work – we also hope to use this as a means to identify good practice and lessons learned that can be used more widely to improve how the UN works together.

It’s a great team, and you would get an opportunity to learn a lot about the inner workings of the UN.

Here’s a link to the job advert with full “official” job description and eligibility requirements and application procedure.

If you are currently enrolled in a post-graduate programme, and have an interest in development issues and knowledge management we would like to hear from you!

UPDATE: UNDP are currently having difficulties with their web recruitment system so please be patient. They will extend the deadline for application once the site is back online. Will let you all know once it’s back online.

  1. It was wonderful to come across this. I’m a first-year KM/IM student at the University of Toronto and am looking to apply my studies to the development area. Would there be a similar position offered in the summer?

    • Thanks for the interest. We don’t have any current plans for a summer internship, but I wouldn’t rule it out. We always have more work than we can handle which could use a smart pair of extra hands.
