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 and we need more support in several areas of our work in the UK. We want to use this 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 advocacy, programmes, or business 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 workplan 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.

 

Am I right for this role?

We are open to the type of person who might be suitable to this role, and are not fixed on a set amount of experience or work directly related to the international development or the education sector. You could be a graduate or someone who is looking to change sectors and gain experience in the not-for-profit sector. We will be primarily recruiting on potential.

Everyone who works in the PEAS UK team must be fluent in English and have a valid work permit to work in the UK.
