Internships, volunteer and work placement opportunities
Internships, volunteer and work placement opportunities are geared to the strengths and interests of the individual and matched to the needs of the Centre. Possible duties may include: researching and producing briefing papers; writing and editing Peace & Justice News and blog posts for our website; maintaining our community events calendar; organising events, workshops or exhibitions; project organising for programmes; networking with groups and individuals on a particular work stream. Day to day tasks may include: providing information to visitors; answering emails and responding to telephone inquiries; updating subscriber and membership lists; maintaining and developing information on campaigns and activities including our library of books, periodicals and films; researching and producing fact sheets; fundraising; committee work and campaigning.
The only requirement is a commitment to our values and a desire to work for peace and justice. Basic computer literacy is important for many jobs, though not all. A wide variety of skills are needed in carrying out our work. Maybe you can offer something creative like cartooning, singing, designing exhibitions, or writing poetry for our newsletter; maybe you can build shelves or fix the lights or coach Arabic; or maybe you’d prefer just to help keep the place clean and tidy.
INTERNSHIPS and Student Workplacements
The Centre offers internships and placements for students, and can guarantee an interesting placement with good opportunities to develop an understanding of peace and justice theory and practice. Interns are involved in campaigning and networking plus administration. We work interns to identify a principle area of work or task that fits their interests and the needs of our programme. We cannot at present offer funding for interns.
If you are interested in becoming an intern or doing a work placement please contact us via email or phone for further information or send us a current cv and a cover letter expressing why you want to work with us.
If you’re interested in volunteering either come in to the centre for more information or fill out the below form and email it along with a current cv if you have one to contact[at]peaceandjustice.org.uk or hand it in with us.
