We offer interns a stipend to help cover living expenses and assign them a mentor to help guide their work.

We welcome unsolicited applications throughout the year. Specific internship opportunities will be displayed on this page when they are available.

Being an intern at the Global Maritime Forum has not only given me valuable insights into the maritime industry and shipping decarbonization on a global scale. I have also developed great skills within project management, working in a dynamic and fast-paced environment while getting to work with projects that aim to make real difference in the world. This has made my internship an extraordinary experience that I will carry with me in my future career.“ – Anna, Sweden

If you are eager to learn and feel like you are doing a difference while acquiring experience in a field you enjoy, this is the place to apply to. You don’t feel like an intern, you feel part of the team with your own responsibilities and tasks. There is space for everyone ideas, regardless your position. I was intimidated by the industry because I had no knowledge about the maritime industry but the passion of the whole team is contagious and you get dragged into it. Everyone is really welcoming and open to help whenever you need it.” – Diana, Italy

I have found that the Global Maritime Forum has given a me a large degree of responsibility in terms of both encouraging me to lead certain tasks, as well as asking for and valuing my opinion. The opportunity to work on a diverse range of topics has also been a massive plus for me, allowing me to gain insight into how it’s possible to have an impact in different areas. For me, overall, I feel like this internship is already preparing me in many different ways to make a positive change on a number of global issues.” – Connor, UK
