About the Marathon. 

Earlier this year we organised the first ever marathon to be held in Sierra Leone. We had 386 competitors, including 170 international runners who helped raise over £400,000 for the charity Street Child of Sierra Leone.

It was an amazing experience and one that will be remembered by everyone for as long as they live. More importantly though, the money will make a real difference to the children living on the streets in Sierra Leone. This marathon is unique not only because it's in Sierra Leone but also because all of the runners were united in raising money for one specific cause and because they all got to see where the money they had raised was being put to work. This ensured a level of engagement I have not experienced anywhere else.

About the Role. 

We have just launched the 2013 marathon and want it to be even bigger and better. We need help in the London office (Bishopsgate) through a 3 month internship you will help with the planning of the event, organising our launch party and recruiting runners and sponsors.

Other tasks may include completing some research, managing our social media and persuading celebrities/patrons to come on board.

This is a voluntary position that starts immediately and ideally we would want you to be available full-time, though as many days as possible would be appreciated.

We are looking for someone who is hard working, creative and enthusiastic.
