New internship with JOA and Street Child is open for applications
Jersey Overseas Aid and Street Child are delighted to launch their Programme Associate placement for 2022-24.
Jersey Overseas Aid is once again teaming up with one of its most trusted NGO partners, Street Child, to offer a unique opportunity to residents of Jersey. This 18 month fully-paid role is intended to give someone the opportunity to launch a career in international development, one of the most challenging and rewarding professions available.
You must be legally entitled to live and work in Jersey, by virtue of birth or length of residency, under the Regulation of Undertakings and Development Law.
International development is an incredibly rewarding career but getting your first job is hard. This exciting programme, now in its 7th edition, will give someone from Jersey the chance to spend 18 months learning the ropes with the professionals, including six months on assignment in a developing country.
Starting in October 2022, you’ll spend 6 months in JOA’s office in St Helier, before transferring to Street Child’s HQ in London for 6 months. By October you’ll be ready for your first field posting, in one of Street Child’s amazing projects in Asia, Africa or the Middle East. You’ll be paid an entry-level salary, plus travel and accommodation expenses.
You should have:
- A Bachelor’s degree or equivalent work experience in any relevant topic
- Demonstrable interest in the sector
- The 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.
