Paid internship: Help us to grow our youth activist network

Youth activism intern/trainee

Want to organise young people to take back our world from corporations and the 1%?

In autumn 2016 we launched a new youth network, which now has six active local groups. This year we want to build on this work, helping more people under 30 to get involved in activism and run our campaigns. This nine-month internship is a great opportunity to develop your activist and organising skills in a professional setting while helping to ensure our youth network continues to grow. We’ll give you the training and support you need as well as the space to take your own initiative.

Closing date: Monday 30 July, 10am
Interviews: Tuesday 7 August
The internship will run for nine months from September (Monday 3 September if the successful applicant is available, otherwise by mid-September at the latest).
Salary: £18,564 per annum (the London Living Wage)

We welcome applications from everyone irrespective of ethnicity, but as members of ethnic minority groups are currently under-represented in the organisation we would like to encourage applications from black and ethnic minority candidates. Appointment will be based on merit alone.

We offer a non-contributory pension, 25 days’ holiday a year (pro rata) and flexible working.
