The Digital Impact Alliance (DIAL) is a global alliance that seeks to empower the digital development ecosystem to deliver greater scale, efficiency, and social impact as it creates more inclusive digital economies in emerging markets. Working with partners, DIAL generates evidence of what works through field-based projects, distills insights and tools to promote scaling and replication, and provides mechanisms for co-investment and partnership throughout the digital development ecosystem. DIAL is hosted by the United Nations Foundation (UNF) in Washington, D.C. and is staffed by a U.S. and global team.
DIAL is seeking a Post-Grad Intern to begin in 2021. The Post-Grad Intern should be ready to contribute to research, policy development, advocacy, monitoring evaluation, and learning work across DIAL. Responsibilities include (but are not limited to) following up on specific project-level M&E needs (such as surveys and data analysis), conducting research on specific digital development topics across DIAL programs, and drafting communications materials in support of a shared learning agenda.
The Post-Grad Intern will be based within the Insights and Outreach (I&O) team but will support various DIAL programming areas across the organization, based on team needs and the skills and experience of the Inter. This is a part-time position and Post-Grad Interns will be expected to work a minimum of 15 hours per week (with some flexibility of up to 29 hours per week) over a 10-week period. Candidates should clearly specify their anticipated start date in their cover letter, as well as their expected time commitment and any barriers related to their availability.
Please note: This is a remote position. Candidates from across the globe are welcome to apply, but if based outside of the U.S, you must be authorized to work in the United States without need for work sponsorship. Given challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the United Nations Foundation offices remain closed until further notice. The Intern will be expected to work remotely during normally scheduled work hours (agreed upon with their supervisor) and supply their own laptop and Internet connection. This is a paid opportunity and offers a rate of $20/hour.
