Street Child is a UK based charity that currently runs programmes across Sierra Leone and has established itself as a leading organisation providing quality and sustainable education to thousands of children.


Street Child runs two programmes:


  1. ‘No Child Left Behind’ delivers high impact projects to reduce the number of children dependent on the nation’s streets and reintegrates them into family life and school
  2. ‘Every Child in School’ focuses on providing first time education to rural communities giving them their first ever school and teacher training. ECiS aims to prevent children in rural villages migrating to urban centres and ending up dependent on the street for survival. 

 

Between 2008 when it was launched and 2012, Street Child reunited 2,000 street children with their families and created educational opportunities for more than 10,000 children.



Challenge Officer

At Street Child, we are very proud of our volunteer-based approach and are currently running a challenge event to engage supporters, old and new, to fundraise for us.  The 50 Quid Challenge tests individuals and teams to raise as much money as possible for Street Child with £50 given to them by the charity. 

To assist with the challenge, we are looking for an outstanding individual to undertake a minimum three-month internship for 3-5days a week based in our London office (travel expenses paid, hours flexible) reporting directly to the Charity Manager. 

The position will require the ability to engage new supporters to take on the challenge, as well as supporting them in maximising their fundraising potential.  The goal is to engage as many people as possible to help us reach a significant fundraising target by Christmas.  The internship would also involve effective administration across the entire programme.

This is an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to play a key role within the growth of an exciting new facet of a rapidly expanding organisation.



The ideal candidate would possess the following:


  • Experience of working effectively towards set goals within a specified timeframe;
  • Fundraising experience.
  • The ability to demonstrate a target-driven approach to their work;
  • Self-motivation and the ability to work independently;
  • A proactive and professional approach;
  • - strong academic credentials;
  • - a keen interest in charity and development.
