An Garda Síochána Diversity Internship Programme


Know any school leavers interested in becoming a Garda intern to help us keep people safe?

An Garda Síochána has launched the second year of its successful Diversity Internship Programme, which aims to provide school leavers from diverse backgrounds with an opportunity to be part of the organisation for nine months (from January 2023). This includes placements across the country in a range of positions and offers interns the opportunity to gain valuable experience working in a unique organisation.
