Internship opportunities at IPRT

IPRT Internship Programme

IPRT offers internship and summer placement opportunities to students and practitioners interested in, and wanting to contribute to, the work of the organisation.We are committed to offering internship opportunities throughout the year to support our research and policy, as well as communications and campaigns activities.

Internships are unpaid, and it is important to note that IPRT will not be in a position to contribute to interns’ costs of living or accommodation in Dublin. Due to the limitations on staff time and office facilities, we are only able to offer two placements at any given time.

Internships are usually carried out within specific roles/duties:

  • Research & Policy
  • Campaigns & Communications

However, interns may be required to work within other functions, according to the needs of the organisation at a particular time.


IPRT is now calling for applications for one internship position, which will run from the end of April until 5th July 2012. The intern will be required to work 2-3 days per week, according to his/her availability on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Tues 17th April, 2012. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to interview on 23rd or 24th April. 

Please note that applications must include a completed application form accompanied by CV; please see below for more details on the applications process.

The next round of 5-month internships, which will run Sept 2012 to January 2013, will be announced end May 2012.

Application Process:

Applications are by official application form only. Shortlisted applicants are invited to attend an interview. Where a shortlisted applicant is unable to attend the interview in person, arrangements can be made to conduct the interview by phone.
