Young Professionals Programme – World Trade Organisation (WTO)

The WTO Young Professionals Programme was launched in 2016 as an opportunity for qualified young professionals from developing and least-developed countries that are members of the WTO to enhance their knowledge regarding WTO and international trade issues. The programme aims to attract professionals from under-represented countries who can consequently improve their chances of being recruited by the WTO and/or other regional and international organizations. The Programme is part of the Secretariat’s efforts to increase diversity and broaden the representation of the membership.

Requirements:

  • be a national of a WTO member state
  • have an advanced university degree in law, economics, and other international trade-related subjects relevant to WTO work
  • have a minimum of two years’ relevant experience
  • demonstrate a high level of interest in international trade and commitment to WTO-related work
  • be fluent in English. A good working knowledge of one of the WTO’s other official languages, French or Spanish, would be an advantage
  • be 32 years of age or younger at the expected start date of the YPP, if selected.
