We are seeking to expand our intern team here at Flight Free UK. We can offer full or part time internships on a temporary (four month) basis. Suitable for those interested in sustainability issues and environmental campaigning, seeking to gain more experience in the sector.

Flight Free UK is a grassroots campaign asking 100,000 people to pledge not to fly next year. We have gained more than 3000 pledges and are attracting a large amount of press interest, with regular interviews. The aim of the campaign is to reach 100,000 people before the end of the year through online campaigning and regional events around the UK.

  • Social media assistant
