Volunteering in the office gives interns a unique opportunity to gain insights into the environmental and political-campaigning worlds. Enthusiasm, self motivation and an ability to work under your own initiative are essential in our tiny office, but the small size of the organisation means you will be able to experience, and become involved in the many different aspects of the campaign.
We currently have several specific part-time and full-time internship vacancies for our UK campaign based at our office in Kings Cross:
Finance and Fundraising Volunteer (part or full-time)
We’re looking for someone to focus on fundraising and organising the day-to-day finances of the campaign.
This position would be for 3 months, full time. We would aim to reimburse travel expenses subject to prior agreement.
Responsibilities will include:
Fundraising for Campaign against Climate Change and the Global Climate Campaign – researching into and applying for grants; researching and building up relationships with key fundraisers, increasing membership; eventually representing the campaign and recruiting members at events.
Managing donations and membership – processing membership donations, standing orders and union affiliations; basic account-keeping; updating database with new signups.
This post will be valuable experience for anyone considering a financial management career in the voluntary sector, especially in the environmental field, and is an opportunity to gain unique insights into the environmental and political-campaigning worlds. Enthusiasm and self motivation are essential. A good head for figures and clear thinking are also essential for this post but accounting and finance qualifications are not required. We will provide guidance and there will be an opportunity to work with a qualified accountant where necessary.
Applicants are requested to send a CV to Phil, email@example.com.
UK Campaign Assistant (part or full-time)
This will involve a combination of the work described above, depending on which of the posts are filled, and how well each of them develop. This position is less structured than the specific roles above, but it’s a great opportunity to get a broad range of experience in campaigning, and will be more varied.
If there are aspects of the more structured roles above that you are interested in, you can focus more on those, just let us know!
This position would be for around 3 months (or the longer the better) working full time, or however many hours the candidate could commit to.
Please send a CV to Phil, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also looking for volunteers who would be interested in building networks with local groups, student groups and spread our message to universities and schools:
Local group support intern
We’re looking for someone to build our communication with local contacts around the country, linking them into what’s happening in London, and finding out what web and information resources they need.
We want to make sure we have a good network of student activists that will help us get people on to the streets. The student coordinator will develop relationships with student contacts and find new contacts where necessary, keeping them in the loop about what we’re doing and working with them to arrange outreach opportunities in universities.
In 2008 we had 3 school groups come to the National Climate March as official field trips – we want to increase this number for 2011! We’re looking for someone who can make and develop contacts in schools, create resources for schools and organise outreach events to get teenagers involved in climate campaigning.
For more information on any of these or to apply, please e-mail email@example.com
If you don't feel that any of these are for you, or you just can't make it in to our office, then take a look at our other volunteering opportunities using the navigation menu at the top of the page.
