Job description

We are looking for two volunteer interns passionate about the Middle East and who keen to be part of our charity’s mission to promote friendship between the UK and Jordan. This is an ideal opportunity for a recently graduated student or someone preparing to go to university, but anyone is welcome to apply. We also welcome applicants from current students, and can tailor the programme to be flexible for them.

The Anglo-Jordanian Society has established an internship programme to begin this year, the 100th anniversary of Jordan's founding.

Travel restrictions permitting, interns will have the opportunity to travel to Jordan for 7 days during or after the internship for an individual project (travel/accommodation expenses will be included and a grant given).

Description:

  • Our internships are flexible but designed to last at least three months.

  • Internships begin in April 2021 but this is flexible if you are a student.

  • Hours of work are very flexible.

  • Work will be conducted remotely.

  • This internship is voluntary and does not have a wage. However, any expenses will be swiftly reimbursed.

  • Travel restrictions permitting, interns will have the opportunity to travel to Jordan for 7 days during or after the internship for an individual project (travel/accommodation expenses will be included).

  • Reports to: The Trustees

What to expect:

The Anglo-Jordanian Society is a small charity based in the UK and Jordan; we have no offices or permanent members of staff. Everyone involved does it because they are passionate about promoting relations between our two countries.

Some ongoing projects you can be involved in include:

  • Helping with the Society’s communications strategy, including social media and newsletters.

  • Assisting with administration and databases.

  • Identifying possible guests for our webinars.

  • Responding to Members' queries

  • Monitor current affairs of relevance to the charity and its programmes

  • Working with groups such as the APPG for Jordan, and the Council for Arab-British Understanding.

  • Producing valuable updates on Anglo-Jordanian relations or aspects of Jordan’s history, geography, economy, literature, art, antiquities, languages, cultures, religions, beliefs and customs

  • Developing a Final Project of your choice, subject to approval by the AJS Board of Trustees

What we are looking for:

  • Self-motivated, enthusiastic individuals

  • Interest in Jordan and the wider region

  • Strong organisational skills

  • Creative and proactive

  • Knowledge of Arabic and the Middle East is desirable but not by any means essential.
