Full time summer internship

Green & Away is seeking an intern to undertake tasks dedicated to sustainability strategy and education management during the season. This role will involve research, assessment and presentation of Green & Away’s sustainable practices, such as analysing our food procurement and measuring our carbon footprint. You will also be responsible for arranging workshops and talks for volunteers as part of our weekly Education Afternoons and guests through a varied education programme, assisted by the trustees.

You will be laying the groundwork for Green & Away to undertake new projects and improve on its practices as an ethical organisation and environmental charity, coming up with new ideas and written policies.

This placement will offer you experience in research, report preparation and project management and is best suited to an organised, independent worker with a passion for sustainable development or outdoor education.

Successful applicants for the internship programme will work well as part of a team as well as independently, enjoy taking on new challenges and responsibility and have an interest in sustainability, charity work, ecotourism, and outdoor living. You will gain considerable management experience and learn about the challenges involved in sustainable living and environmental education.

Green & Away is an entirely volunteer-run organisation and as an educational charity, teaching our interns has been an integral part of our work for over ten years. All interns are expected to stay on site throughout the season and are provided with 3 vegetarian meals a day and a space to pitch your own tent. There will be regular days off and some opportunities for off-site group activities, for example canoeing or visiting like minded eco-businesses, during quieter periods of the season.
