We understand it is often difficult to get a foot on the career ladder within the environmental sector. Jobs in this sector can be quite unique and text book training is not readily available. To help address this, from 2009 we began to offer a small number of internships in our London office. We hope our structured internship programmes will help give an insight into what working in the sector can be like and provide an opportunity to develop valuable skills and experience.
Please bear in mind that internship opportunities will be limited as we continue to implement this scheme during 2011.
All available internships will be advertised on the current vacancies section of our website as and when they arise. Further details of each internship and how to apply will be posted at the time.
You may wish to sign up to receive alerts about each new internship. Although we can make no guarantees that work will become available here at Greenpeace UK following completion of your internship, we hope the experience will help to increase your employability and perhaps open up further opportunities.
We hope Greenpeace internships will provide interns with:
- an insight into working in the environmental sector
- the chance to make a real contribution to Greenpeace
- hands on experience
- workplace skills
- the opportunity to develop both personally and professionally
Internships will be based in our London office, require a minimum of 1 months commitment and will be unpaid. However lunch and travel expenses within London will be covered. Internships will usually be part-time and during normal office hours. Please note that Greenpeace are unable to cover the costs of travel or relocation to London to take part in our internship programmes. We are unable to provide help with finding or funding accommodation for the duration of the internship programme.
You may also wish to contact our other offices regarding internships which they may have available: Greenpeace offices worldwide.
