Duties and Responsibilities
This internship is located in the Triangular Partnership Programme (TPP) in the Support Partnerships Service (SPS), the Division for Special Activities (DSA) in the Department of Operational Support (DOS) at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
The mission of the United Nations Department of Operational Support (DOS) is to provide operational advisory services to operating entities across the Secretariat, including other departments, offices-away-from headquarters, field missions, and regional commissions. DSA oversees a range of specialized or cross-cutting operational capacities. A large part of
its responsibilities is to support start-up, surge, and transition requirements and to exercise authority on behalf of entities to which authority has not been granted owing to a lack of capacity or from which authority has been temporarily withdrawn. SPS coordinates and maintains bilateral and trilateral relationships with key partners, such as regional organizations, other United Nations actors and governments, for the receipt or provision of operational support from or to Secretariat entities. TPP is one of the outcomes of the September 2014 Summit on UN Peacekeeping and aims to enhance the Enabling Capabilities for peacekeeping. TPP comprises the United Nations supporting Member States and Troop-Contributing Countries (TCCs).
The Intern reports to the Programme Officer. The internship is for an initial period of three months and may be extended up to six months depending on the needs of the Division. The internship is unpaid and can be full-time, parttime,
