The internship programme is also expected to provide Malawi with the assistance of qualified students specialized in the ICT/T4D field. The intern will perform a general ICT/office and administration support. He/she will be expected to be an active participant, collaborating and working with the ICT team to ensure correctness, timeliness and consistency of technical support. All these learning and performing elements should be consistent with the overall goal of meeting the needs and requirements for UNICEF programmes/operations while at the same time providing a development opportunity to the intern.
