Free Internships Abroad with Globalteer!

Free International Internships and Free Volunteering Abroad

Spending time abroad as part of your university degree doesn’t have to mean struggling through a lecture in a foreign language or working in a bar in Europe. Globalteer can offer you an alternative, more meaningful way to spend your time abroad in South America or South East Asia. Whether you’re looking to perfect your Spanish language skills, or gain valuable experience with an international development internship; Globalteer can provide you with time in the field with an overseas NGO internship or free volunteering opportunity.

We are also looking for specialist volunteers who can support the Charity in our overseas offices; in areas such as marketing, fundraising and programme development. Many commercial companies charge interns and specialised volunteers for overseas placements. At Globalteer we provide Free Internships Abroad and you can Volunteer Abroad for free!

Join our Globalteer UK Charity Team in Peru or Cambodia

By spending time living and working abroad you will be immersing yourself into a culture vastly different from your life back home. Working with the team in either Cambodia or Peru, you’ll be part of the staff and given the opportunity to participate in some exciting grassroots programmes and to be part of diverse cultures and locations, steeped in history. Depending on your needs and ours, Globalteer will give you a unique opportunity to gain insight into a small, forward-looking British Charity whose work has proven benefits at local levels.

Living and working in a developing country for an extend period is a rewarding and valuable experience. By taking on an internship opportunity abroad you will gain invaluable practical experience that will help prepare you for your career. Many employers in the International Development sector value the time you will have spent in the field as part of a Charity internship; and let’s face it, spending your time abroad in Peru or Cambodia will provide you with a wealth of stories to take back home with you; as well as valuable professional experience gained from your internship programme!

Globalteer International Internships are Free!

The best part? It’s free! We will not charge you for your Globalteer internship placement; all that we ask is that you pay for your cost of living and relocation. What we will provide you with in return is an unforgettable experience that will ensure that you’re the envy of your friends and fellow classmates!

Depending upon your skills and interests, we have a variety of duties both full and part time at our Peru and Cambodia offices from 1 month to 1 year. So whether you are just looking for a summer internship abroad or a longer international internship programme; as part of a study abroad programme or gap year; we can tailor a time frame to fit your needs.
