Summer Internship

Green & Away

Bransford, Worcestershire

Volunteer • Full Time

www.greenandaway.org

Sectors: environmental education, sustainability

Closing date: Saturday, 20th April 2024  


Green & Away is looking for several passionate and hardworking individuals to join our summer internship programme. Our programme is varied and adaptable to suit you and your interests. What we can offer you is a place to learn new skills, meet a range of different people and learn about sustainability, environmental education, and running a charitable organisation.

As an intern, you will be a valuable member of the crew throughout the summer and will be responsible for managing teams of volunteers. We have groups of volunteers staying for different durations, and we need our interns to be the backbone of the crew, providing ongoing knowledge of the site and undertaking longer term projects. On-the-job training and an induction will be provided in the first week, with continual guidance from a dedicated member of the trustee board. You will have the opportunity to measure your progress through regular check-ins with the interns managers. Interns will join the volunteers during the setting up and taking down of the site.

At Green & Away, we tailor our internships to your skills, areas of interest and what you’d like to develop. You could run one long project, or a portfolio of smaller projects, all with a focus on sustainability, ecotourism and outdoor living.

Past projects have included:

  • Writing a strategy for our charity
  • Designing and painting educational boards and signs
  • Doing a carbon footprint analysis
  • Helping with our social media
  • Designing and running educational workshops for our volunteers

For more information, please see our website.
