Youth and Education Programmes Intern

Posted by The Royal Commonwealth Society

Salary expenses
Location Westminster, London, Greater London

Job Description

The Royal Commonwealth Society, founded in 1868, is a network of individuals and organisations committed to improving the lives and prospects of Commonwealth citizens across the world. Working through a range of educational, civil society, business and governmental networks, the RCS addresses issues that matter to Commonwealth citizens.

We are seeking a Youth and Education Programmes Intern who will provide essential support to the Youth and Education (Y&E) team. This role will involve assisting with a range of RCS Youth and Education programmes, such as The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition, the Commonwealth Service and other youth-focused events in the run up to the 2018 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, to be held in London in April. The Volunteer will also help with the communications of the Y&E team.

The successful candidate will be supervised by the Director of Youth Affairs and Education Programmes and line-managed by a Programmes Officer. The RCS is a small team, however, and the intern will have a chance to engage with all members of staff.

Duties and Responsibilities

  • Assisting with the promotion, administration, and logistics of The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition
  • Assisting with the promotion, administration and logistics of the Commonwealth Service in March
  • Assisting with communications, internal and external, for Youth and Education programmes
  • Completing research tasks related to programmes
  • Where necessary, assisting with preparations for other RCS programmes and publications

Person Specification

Whilst an interest in youth and education as well as international issues is highly desirable, no specific qualifications or experience are necessary for this role.

The ideal volunteer intern would, however, possess the following skills and qualities:

  • An ability to communicate clearly and politely, in person, on the phone and via email with a wide range of people
  • An ability to write in clear, concise English
  • An ability to work effectively in a team but, when required, take initiative and work independently
  • Excellent organisational skills, punctuality and reliability
  • Confidence using standard Microsoft Office computer programmes and a willingness to learn to use new IT tools
  • A commitment to understand, support and communicate the aims and objectives of the RCS
  • Enthusiasm and willingness to learn 

Duration and hours for this role are flexible. This is an unpaid opportunity but the successful candidate will receive up to £20 per day expenses. 

You should never provide bank or financial information, or make any form of payment, when applying for a job. If you are ever asked to do this by a recruiter on our site, please email: [email protected]
