We offer a fantastic voluntary internship scheme that allows you to develop your skills, experience and confidence within a structured, rewarding and challenging voluntary placement that can fit around other commitments.

Our voluntary internships are three months long and designed to be between 10 and 20 hours a week.

The objectives of each role are all based around the completion of a particular project that allow your contribution to be of value to our organisation and your career.

What are the benefits of becoming an intern?

Our interns benefit from a broad programme of learning and development opportunities including:

  • Induction day
  • Meeting skills training 
  • Effectiveness in the workplace training 
  • Employability training
  • Presentation skills
  • An extensive programme of online learning 
  • An evaluation and graduation ceremony at the end of the programme

All interns start at the same time and support each other throughout their placements with intern-led meetings and an online forum. 

Opportunities to interact with other teams and often other charities are built into the projects, providing a broad insight into how a national charity operates as well as a perspective on the sector as a whole, and a wide network of contacts.

We run our volunteer internship programme from October to December and we are now accepting applications for a variety of roles across the organisation.
