Job Details

Influencing Intern
Full or part time on a short term contract
£6,980 (£1,995 before tax per month full time – Pro rata for part time option) [ £23,933 FTE] | Contract | 3.5 months full time option | Multiple part time options considered

This opportunity has been designed around what Switchback can do for you, instead of what you can do for Switchback. We are looking for someone with lived experience of the criminal justice system who is excited about using their journey to create change in the system.

You do not need any prior experience in policy or communications for this role, just enthusiasm and excitement. It is also important that you can demonstrate a commitment to learning something new.

It would be a great opportunity for someone who wants to start a policy or communications career but not necessary. You will have a chance to be part of our office environment and learn and engage with many different parts and people within our organisation.

We know ‘Imposter Syndrome’ can get in the way of a lot of candidates from ethnic minority/lived experience backgrounds, so we would like to provide a space for people to come without judgment. So we are holding an online Q&A from 3-4pm on Thursday 11th April with Antonia May, Head of Influencing, Daniel Mills, Policy and Public Affairs Lead, Amy Davidson, Campaigns and Communications Manager, Elton Gilbert, Participations Coordinator and Lisa Hickman, Office & Operations Manager. If you’d like to join and hear more about us and the role, please register by emailing jobs@switchback.org.uk

If you need support in writing your application or need access to a computer, we would be more than happy to support you so please do let us know on jobs@switchback.org.uk
