Deadline for coveted 1-year paid internship approaches
Last few days to apply for JOA’s 2019/2020 Internship
International development is an incredibly rewarding career, but getting your first job is hard. This exciting programme will give someone from Jersey the chance to spend 12 months learning the ropes with the professionals, including six months on assignment in a developing country.
Starting in June/July 2019, you’ll spend two months in JOA’s office in St Helier, before transferring to UK Charity HelpAge International in London. By November/December you’ll be ready for your first field posting, in one of HelpAge’s offices in Africa or Asia. You’ll be paid an entry-level salary of around £20k, plus a London living allowance.
You should have:
- A Bachelor’s degree in any relevant topic
- Demonstrable interest in the sector
- Proven ability to successfully manage a full and varied workload
Some experience of working or travelling in developing countries would also be desirable. No age limit applies, and career-changers are welcome. However, you should be serious about embarking on a fulfilling but demanding new path, including being prepared to spend significant time in challenging places.
Deadline is 26th April 2019
