OneVoice Europe are recruiting for an Intern to support the team in office administration, research and holding events for 3 months, starting in September 2012. OneVoice is an international grassroots movement that amplifies the voice of mainstream Israelis and Palestinians, empowering them to propel their elected representatives toward a two-state solution.
Duties will include managing the charity’s membership scheme, filing and databasing, researching assigned tasks and attending events to help with practical aspects and photographs/recording.
The successful candidate will be required to commit to 24 hours per week Monday-Thursday, for the duration of the upcoming academic term. Hours are flexible, but the candidate will be required to accompany at least one, one-week UK tour to various events that will also cover Friday and the weekend for that week. This is a unique opportunity to work for an international organisation and to build experience in conflict resolution work.
The role being advertised is a voluntary one. As such, there are no set hours and responsibilities and you should be free to come and go as you wish. If the post demands set hours and/or has a specific job description you may be deemed to be a ‘worker’ and be covered by National Minimum Wage legislation. See http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Employment/Employees/
