Jobs and internships

IIED is a policy and action research organisation. We promote sustainable development to improve livelihoods and protect the environments on which these livelihoods are built. We specialise in linking local priorities to global challenges.

IIED has headquarters in London and Edinburgh, and works in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and the Pacific. We work with some of the world’s most vulnerable people to strengthen their voice in the decision-making arenas that affect them – from village councils to international conventions.

We are a growing organisation, often on the lookout for professional and creative people with a passion for our mission, and we have committed to paying the Living Wage.
