We are recruiting for new UK office interns!

“I got to spend time working with people from very different backgrounds … all of whom are passionately engaged in resolving social problems and spurring others on to roll their sleeves up.”   Alex Sangster (2015 Spring Intern)

Tzedek offers 3 month internships for those who are passionate about international development and looking for a hands on experience in team work and organising projects.
 
We love our interns. 
 
As  a vibrant, busy and successful charity, we are small enough to give you a bespoke internship, tailored to your skills. We will give you a chance to be involved in all aspects of our work. You can help us put on events, be involved with our overseas development work, campaign with social media, research, create resources and manage projects. If your skills lie in IT or marketing, graphic design or accounting, we will find a role for you.
 
These are volunteer positions, with travel expenses covered.

“Whereas summer holidays of the past have been full of fun and adventure, this one has been different. It has certainly been the most rewarding, but has also delivered an overdue taste of reality, one that has introduced me to life after university and the education system. This was once a scary prospect but now, thanks to Tzedek, I can approach it with assurance, anticipation and even a little excitement.” – Dan Aron (2014 Summer Intern)
