we are recruiting!                                                                       TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES                                                                                                                    - 2 Paid internships 2021/2










People & Planet is the largest student network in Britain campaigning campaigning for social and environmental justice. 

We have one of the most respected internship programmes in the sector, where you’ll gain all the experience you need to thrive in the not-for-profit sector. These positions are designed both to help us achieve our campaign aims and you to develop your skills.

You’ll receive intensive, ongoing training, fantastic support and build up a variety of skills so that, by the time you finish, you’ll be single-handedly managing your own projects and campaigns.

Over the course of the year we will provide training and development to enable you to:

  • support autonomous student led groups to organise and run our campaigns

  • deliver training and workshops to provide skills to the workshop

  • undertake research to ensure our campaigns are effective and well informed.

We are offering two 13 month training and development opportunities in 2021/2 - a Climate Justice Internship  and a Migrant Justice Internship

People & Planet particularly encourages applications from people from BAME communities, people with lived experience of migration and/or living with unsettled immigration status,  trans people, queer people, people with disabilities, people with caring responsibilities and other groups typically underrepresented in campaigning organisations. We are committed to make reasonable adjustments to enable any candidate to show their suitability for a role within People & Planet.

The Climate Justice Internship is open to all applicants.

The Migrant Justice Internship is a  positive action internship aimed at increasing the participation of certain underrepresented groups within  People & Planet and the charity sector.People sharing certain protected characteristics (within the meaning of the Equality Act 2010)are currently underrepresented within People  & Planet. The under-represented group that we have identified is people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds.Evidence also shows that people from BAME backgrounds are underrepresented in the charity sector. The Migrant Justice Internship is aimed at addressing this  by offering a paid, entry level training and development opportunity to gain campaign experience in the charity sector which can be an invaluable first step in breaking into this field.As such, you are only eligible to apply for the Migrant Justice internship if you are from a BAME community group.
