Humanitarian Advisory Group
Supporting emerging practitioners is a priority for us, and a way of working.
Over the last 10 years, we’ve had 43 interns from more than 10 institutions complete a placement with us. We value bringing new and diverse voices to our organisation to encourage fresh thinking. We’ve had interns from all sorts of different backgrounds and contexts including from Sweden, Canada, Kenya, the Philippines, Egypt, Colombia, Indonesia, Poland, China, USA and Japan. We work with Interns to help them navigate where their passion lies in humanitarian response and mapping out how to get there.
Our internship program provides opportunities for students engaged in advanced university study to develop their skills in research, training and technical support. Our interns work on research assistance, write blogs, support HAG and sector events and learn valuable research skills. The areas of focus cover protection in humanitarian crises, diverse leadership in the sector and localisation, just to name a few. We offer experience supporting active projects across the region, training opportunities, career planning and opportunities for networking (plus much more!).
