2 days a week, 6-months contract
We are looking to hire an intern on two days a week to support the Brexit Civil Society Alliance, a project hosted by Unlock Democracy. The successful candidate will be adaptable, organised and confident working in a constantly changing environment. You will have strong desk research skills, possibly through a degree or higher education or on the job training. Some experience of organising events would be good. This experience doesn’t need to come from paid work, and can be from voluntary experience.
Brexit is the biggest issue facing our country. Come and join us to make sure civil society’s voice is heard in the process. This is an exciting chance to develop a wide range of skills and be part of a small and agile team.
Applicants who want to work remotely will be considered. Regular days working in London will be required. We are flexible as to which two days of the week are most suitable for the successful candidate.
Unlock Democracy is funded by grant-making trusts and foundations to host and manage coordination capacity for the Brexit Civil Society Alliance. The Alliance has existed since July 2017 and was first set up to co-ordinate the civil society response to the European Union (Withdrawal) Act. It has members across the UK including many hub organisations and includes organisations working on human rights, citizens’ rights, environment, consumer, workers’ rights, equality, democracy, transparency, food, farming, and trade.
The Alliance has funding up to July 2020 and supports the work of civil society on Brexit. The Alliance’s work is guided by three principles- open and accountable lawmaking, respect for the devolved nature of the UK constitution and ensuring the rights and standards for all sectors are maintained.
The Brexit Civil Society Alliance have recently received funding to co-ordinate an NGO working group with organisations working on the EU Settlement Scheme and to host regional roundtable events across the UK to help build capacity for organisations to respond and mitigate against the challenges with the EU Settlement Scheme. The successful candidate will support the Alliance team with this area of work.
