Job Description

Positive Impact Events is a not-for-profit which ensures sustainability in the event industry. Our vision is to have a sustainable event industry by 2020. We do this by providing education materials, collaborating with event professionals and campaigning to promote sustainable event initiatives.

We have worked tremendously hard to make event professionals aware of the need to be sustainable and the results have been inspiring. All this could not be achieved without our amazing team of interns. We have several internship roles available including a campaigns intern, a partnerships intern and a content intern.

The campaigns intern's role is to promote our campaigns on social media, gather hosts and gain sponsorship. This involves liasing with potential partners and finding creative ways to promote our campaigns. You will also be leading a new group of campaign interns in Leeds!

The partnerships intern will be focusing on the monthly communications with our partners- associates, universities and sponsors. This role involves doing research, creating monthly reports and having phone calls with our partners to confirm endorsements. 

The content intern is responsible for producing most of the content for Positive Impact, including monthly newsletters and our UN Sustainable Development Goal Education piece. The content intern is also responsible for updating the blog on the website.

All these roles require excellent written and oral communication skills, organisational and leadership skills and a desire to make the planet more sustainable. The internship offers you an opportunity to be part of something incredibly important as well as relevant work experience for all careers. We treat you like a proper employee and give you responsibility with our projects from day 1.

Based in the heart of Manchester, in Northern Quarter, we require our interns to work 3 days a week (1 day working from home) for a period of three months. Please send a CV and cover letter stating your relevant skills and why you want to join Positive Impact Events and our mission to make the event industry fully sustainable.
