What is this internship all about?

PEAS always has a lot to get done and this year is no different. We are a small team in the UK and are looking for support in a few areas, and want to give someone an opportunity to get experience in working somewhere like PEAS.

We are offering you the opportunity learn about education, international development, and working in a small, fast-growing social enterprise. This would suit someone who would like to move into business development, communications or people development in the future.

You would receive professional development as if you were one of PEAS’ permanent employees, with regular mentoring from a line manager in the team, and formal and informal feedback throughout your internship. We want to make sure you are getting as much value from your time with us as possible, so we’ll encourage you to identify areas you want to learn, and we’ll do our best to tailor your work    plan so you can make the most of that learning.

As a small team, we work very collaboratively and you will get the chance to really immerse yourself in the organisation. This is a unique chance to build upon your skills with hands-on experience in a leading organisation in a fast-changing and high-impact sector.
