What are your interests?



Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their most productive under supervisors who give clear guidelines and while performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

TY Activism Training
UNICEF Ireland

Company/Organisation Profile

UNICEF has been helping children for over 60 years and has saved more children’s lives than any other organisation in the world. We have the history and the experience to overcome obstacles like politics and poverty—even war—which can stand in the way of helping a child survive. While we could never do it alone, we are often the ones who reach children in need after everyone else has given up. 

Every moment of every day, UNICEF is on the ground providing lifesaving help for children in need. We provide families with clean water and sanitation, we vaccinate against childhood illness, and we help protect children against malaria. We provide nourishment to fight malnutrition, and we care for children affected by AIDS. We protect children from abuse, and we give them an education. 

Placement Details


Become empowered with the skills, knowledge and strategies to be a powerful change maker in your community. UNICEF offers young people the opportunity to participate in local activism through our week long activism training programme. This is ideal for a Transition Year Work Experience Week or Volunteerism week. The course is held on Fridays in Dublin, from 9:30-4pm.

At the end of the first day you will have created your own action plan to deliver in your school or community over the following week. This course can work well for students who live outside Dublin, as most of the week is spent in your school or community.
