JOA launches its 2020/21 Paid International Development 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 a year learning the ropes with the professionals, including six months on assignment in a developing country.
Starting in October 2020, the successful applicant will spend two months in JOA’s office in St Helier, before transferring to UK Charity Send a Cow in Bath. By April or May the successful applicant will be heading to their first field posting in one of Send a Cow’s offices in Africa – probably Ethiopia, where Jersey is planning to roll out its hugely-successful dairy programme for smallholder farmers.
The successful applicant will be paid an entry-level salary of £20k, plus a modest UK living allowance and should have a demonstrable interest in international development and the proven ability to manage a full and varied workload.
Experience of working or travelling in developing countries is also desirable. No age limit applies, and career-changers are welcome. However, applicants should be serious about embarking on a fulfilling but demanding new path, including being prepared to spend significant time in challenging places.
Applicants must have the right to live and work in Jersey.
The deadline is 3rd August 2020.
