The Swiss Arbitration Centre is always delighted to welcome talented interns from all over the world and to support their professional development.

The candidate should: 

  • demonstrate a keen interest in dispute resolution
  • be proficient in English with a good level of French or German (fluency in any other languages, in particular Italian, is a plus) 
  • be prepared to demonstrate adaptability and flexibility in the workplace, and
  • value teamwork. 

Time period

Candidates are invited to submit their applications by the end of May if they wish to join the team as of September. If they wish to join the team as of March, then they should submit their applications by the end of November. 

Kindly note that we offer internships that last from one to six months and invite the candidates to clearly state their availability in the application.
