Social Enterprise Internship - Initiative to Value Human Life

Details Hide[-]

Interested in working for a start-up social enterprise? Have a passion for social policy, human rights, or international development? Complete an internship with the Initiative to Value Human Life on a part-time basis alongside your studies next academic year and gain skills in research, project management, team work, and help IVHL achieve its objectives of understanding how policymakers and organisations value human lives in decision making. 

We are looking for anyone who has an interest in sustainable development, politics, social policy, international development more broadly, and anyone who shares an interest in this important topic. You will initially work together with IVHL colleagues and devise a research project which you'll then complete remotely alongside your studies over the academic year, while updating IVHL regularly on your progress. 

Student interns can work remotely as the charity is very new and the team communicate via the online collaboration tool Slack. The time commitment can be flexible to fit around studies, and there are opportunities to go to events (for example, IVHL was recently invited to participate in the Basel Peace Forum, and the team meets up in London from time to time). 

As a start up, IVHL currently does not have offices so we will collaborate through the online collaboration tool, and via Skype or other social media tools. From time-to-time we will schedule meetings at the members' room at the Royal Geographical Society in South Kensington, or elsewhere at a mutually convenient location.

We also aspire to help you develop your career so if there is anything we can do to assist you on your path please let us know.
