Cultivating Young Minds

We are regularly looking for young talents who are interested to complete the internship program at Perron Campaigns. Internships are paid and generally last for six months. They take place either in Zurich or Manila. In general, an internship is full time but the work hours are flexible. In this sense, it is ideal for a student who is about to reach the end of his or her studies or someone who just graduated. Assignments include everything from administrative tasks to more substantial ones.

We are looking for people who can work independently, are highly motivated, flexible and detail-oriented. Willingness to work hard, office work experience, very solid English and computer skills (MS Word, MS Excel, MS Powerpoint, SPSS/Stata) are necessary conditions. Knowledge in French, Spanish, Italian, Filipino, Thai or Brazilian is not a condition but a big plus. We offer an inspiring and unique work environment in the field of public affairs and political communication.


“The internship at Perron Campaigns was an ideal complement to my studies in political science. The work didn’t just consist of administrative assignments but offered a variety of interesting tasks at the intersection of science and politics. Louis Perron is a very demanding boss with an amazingly great deal of knowledge and experience. It was highly instructive and thrilling to work in such close collaboration with him. Having completed the internship at Perron Campaigns, I feel perfectly ready for the professional world!”

“During my time at Perron Campaigns I have learnt to apply the theoretical political knowledge gained at university in a practical manner. I was trained in dealing with and working for the media, politicians, companies, parties and other organizations. While administrative tasks were one part of my job, I was also able to work on strategic and analytical papers and get some hands-on experience with opposition research. This internship allows an unbiased insight into the everyday world of politics. Working for Louis Perron is very demanding but it’s even more rewarding. I am convinced that this internship will mark an important milestone for my professional future.”
