Green & Away is looking for a number of passionate and hardworking individuals to join the summer internship programme across 5 departments: catering management, events and hospitality, office management, technical and maintenance, and sustainability and education.
Interns will be responsible for the daily operation of their departments, including management of a team of volunteers. Training will be provided in the first week, with continual guidance from a dedicated member of the trustee board. You will have the opportunity to measure your progress through regular check-ins with the Interns Manager.
Successful applicants for the internship programme will work well as part of a team as well as independently, enjoy taking on new challenges and responsibility and have an interest in sustainability, charity work, ecotourism, and outdoor living. You will gain considerable management experience and learn about the challenges involved in sustainable living and environmental education.
Green & Away is an entirely volunteer-run organisation. All interns are expected to stay on site throughout the season and are provided with 3 vegetarian meals a day and a space to pitch your own tent. There will also be opportunities for off-site activities, for example canoeing or visiting likeminded eco-businesses, during quieter periods of the season.
We are recruiting for the following roles (please see website for full descriptions):
*Events and Hospitality
*Technical and Maintenance
*Sustainability and Education
How to apply
Applications should consist of a CV and a one-page covering letter explaining why you would like to be an intern with Green & Away, which internship you are applying for, which aspects of our work particularly appeal to you, and what you would bring to the role. You are welcome to apply for a placement in more than one department.
Interviews will be conducted via Skype/video conferencing on a rolling basis with selections being made in May, so do apply as early as you can.
Please send applications by 13 April 2018.
