The work of the Mission is intense and diverse, requiring flexibility, analytical thinking and a firm understanding of diplomatic principles. The environment is complex and demanding but the work is highly rewarding for the right people. Interns will work under the guidance of experienced officers and will be expected to contribute to the regular diplomatic reporting undertaken by the Mission. They will primarily assist with policy work on the six main UNGA Committees, which cover international security, political and economic issues, human rights, legal and budget. This could include attending committees and meetings, and assisting with negotiations of texts and resolutions. Interns will also assist with events and high-level visits associated with Leaders Week, the high-level week of the General Assembly. Interns represent the Australian Government in a formal capacity in an international environment. For this reason, social maturity, cross-cultural awareness and clear communication skills are essential.
