Job Title: Universities Network Co-ordinator Internship
Working For: Campaign Against Arms Trade
Salary: £21,700 pa (full-time)
This is a great opportunity for someone looking to work for an NGO taking their first steps in a campaigning career.
The Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) works to end the international arms trade and promote peace, justice and democratic values. The arms industry is a deadly, corrupt business that has a devastating impact on human rights and security, and damages economic development.
CAAT is offering a 12 month paid internship post to someone wanting to build on their campaigning and outreach skills. The post will start at the end of July and has the potential to lead to a temporary staff role after the internship.
CAAT's Universities Network is an informal collective of students and groups at universities across the UK who are campaigning to break ties between their studying institutions and arms companies. We are looking for someone to inspire and support students to take action and campaign effectively.
The internship will be full-time based at our London office, although travelling to universities around the country is also a part of the role. This is a training post that aims to offer someone an accessible first paid job as a campaigner. The intern will be offered a comprehensive training programme when they start with support from a member of staff.
So, if you have a strong interest in campaigning and would like to develop your outreach skills then we'd love to hear from you.
Closing Date: 20 May 2018
Interviews will be held on Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 June.
It is hoped the candidate will start at the end of July.
