Summer 2018 internships: Please note that we're currently not recruiting interns for Summer 2018 unless the position has been advertised on external webpages or career sections of universities. 


Interns are invaluable to us, and we are able to achieve so much more thanks to their diligence, initiative and passion. Our internships are voluntary and most  of our interns work with us alongside their university studies or part-time work.  Working with our small team we do our best to make sure that every intern gains useful experience and has the chance to contribute significantly to our work, as well as the chance to meet others with similar interests and goals. We provide reasonable travel (within London) and lunch expenses. 


If you’re interested in one-off volunteering at one of our events, helping us fundraise in your free time, or if you’d like to help out at one of our partner projects (for example the Baytree Centre in London) then please send this completed form to .
