This year, we support nearly 170,000 personnel in 36 peacekeeping, political and other international operations with solutions that are rapid, effective, efficient, and responsible. The Strategic Support Team in the Office of the Under-Secretary-General of Field Support provides direct executive and management support to DFS leadership. Our work covers DFS strategy, performance, and analytics; as well as communication, coordination, and external relations.

Internships are available under three broad tracks: i) Executive and Management Support; ii) Analytics and Business Intelligence, and iii) Communications and Design. More details about these tracks, and on application procedure can be accessed here
