Employment and Internship Opportunities
Geneva Call will post all openings for positions, either as staff or as interns, on this page. Potential candidates are encouraged to use the RSS feed below, to be advised of any developments.
Geneva Call staff is highly motivated and professional. All have been selected following a thorough recruiting procedure, which may take several months.
Geneva Call is an equal opportunities employer.
Candidates must be able to express themselves fluently in either French or English, and should have a working knowledge of the other language. They must be able to travel to various parts of the world, sometimes in situations of conflict. For other requirements, please see the individual notices posted on this page.
Please note that Geneva Call is subject to Swiss labour law. As such, it must seek to recruit staff who have, or are easily able to, obtain a Swiss Work permit. Essentially, this means we give preference to Swiss citizens, persons living in Switzerland with a valid work permit, or citizens of most EU countries. (For more information, in French, please see )
Geneva Call's salary scale for staff employed in Geneva is calculated to be 10% below salaries in the canton's civil service. This ensures that salaries are reasonably competitive, sufficient to cover living expenses, without being considered excessive.
Persons seeking paid employment are encouraged NOT to apply spontaneously, as we are regrettably not able to recruit staff outside positions which have been announced on this page. We do not guarantee a response to spontaneous applications.
Geneva Call offers excellent internships, allowing interns to experience first hand, the life and the challenges of a small NGO. Internships also serve to give the interns tools, that they be able to use later on during their career.
Internships are unpaid. Contracts usually last from three to six months, part- or full-time.
Spontaneous applications for internships should be submitted to the e-mail address, , with a short CV and motivation letter attached. Both documents should imperatively be in pdf format. Although Geneva Call's policy is to reply to all candidatures, workload sometimes prevents us from doing so, for which we apologise. Persons interested in an internship, should peruse our website, so as to be able to indicate their areas of preference.
In line with Swiss labour law, preference will be given to interns of Swiss or European nationalities, or persons already in possession of a Swiss work/residency permit. Candidates who do not fulfil these conditions may also apply, but a delay of at least three month or more must be observed, between the signing of the contract and its start, to allow Geneva Call to request the relevant permit.
NOTE: Foreign students studying in Switzerland are allowed to work or to intern, up to twenty hours per week. Interns will need to submit their internship request (through Geneva Call) to the cantonal authorities.
