The Charity: Street Child
Ten years after a brutal civil war, Sierra Leone is still one of the poorest countries in the world. While this small and beautiful West African country is now at peace, our own research indicates that there are around 50,000 children relying upon the streets of Sierra Leone for their survival. We hope to help them all.
Street Child is a volunteer-led charity which works with street kids and out of school children.
Working with children still living on the streets, we help them find security through counselling and the stabilising presence of our social workers. We then work towards reunifying them with their families, getting them back in school and helping them to stay there by offering their family small business grants and training. We also help to provide deprived rural communities with their first-ever basic schools giving children the chance to thrive through education.
As a result of our work between 2008 and 2013, more than 2,000 children have been reunited with their families and over 20,000 are now in school.
Street Child is seeking an outstanding individual to undertake a Marketing/Fundraising Internship for 3-5 days a week, based in our London office in the run up to Christmas (travel expenses paid, hours flexible).
The successful candidate will provide support on the development of a major funding application for an exciting new fundraising campaign. Responsibilities will include researching new marketing opportunities and canvasing support for the campaign amongst corporates and high-profile individuals. The ideal applicant will have office experience and be self-motivated to achieve set targets within a limited timeframe. A background in communications, PR or marketing will looked upon very favourably.
Internships at Street Child are guaranteed to be busy and varied and this is a great opportunity to offer real value to our team whilst gaining valuable experience in return. Equally, interns will have the opportunity to shape their own experience according to their skills, goals and knowledge.
Our aim is to offer interns invaluable work experience and we will do our best to support them in their career development.
The ideal candidate would have the following:
- Strong academic credentials;
- A proactive and professional approach;
- Excellent written and verbal communications skills;
- Experience in communications, PR or marketing.
- Ability to work both independently and as a part of a team;
- A keen interest in charity and development.
We are looking for candidates who can start as soon as possible. Please send a CV and cover letter, together with your availability to firstname.lastname@example.org
