Interns Needed 2: London

Date 28th Jul 2009

The team behind climate change blockbuster The Age of Stupid are looking for three unbelievably impressive-interns to work on a top-secret national campaign.

When: One month, starting on or near 12 August.

Where: Camden, London

Us: After spending five years making a climate change blockbuster labelled "the most important film of the year" by The News of the World, we should probably be going on holiday. Instead, we're attempting to launch one of the biggest, boldest, and most game-changing climate campaigns the UK has ever seen. That's where you come in.

The Job: You'll be lightening the load of our small but overworked campaigns team by:

• Taking on real responsibility for parts of the campaign
• Attending/following up on meetings with various movers, shakers and climate bigwigs
• Helping to coordinate logistics for our absurdly ambitious launch event
• Wheeling and dealing with consultants, suppliers, funders and partner organisations (We can make our own coffee)

The Essentials:

• Boundless energy and enthusiasm
• Multitasking superpowers
• Adaptable and quick to learn
• Basic knowledge of climate-related issues and some campaigning experience (needn’t be paid)
• Good written and spoken English
• Confident and personable, both on the phone and face-to-face
• An interest in averting the climate change induced collapse of civilisation
• Ability to persuade people to do things that they wouldn’t do normally
• Your own laptop

Definitely Won't Hurt:

• Copywriting experience
• Familiarity with Adobe Creative Suite programmes
• Advanced knowledge of climate science and/or policy
• Experience in the CSR or NGO world
• Fundraising experience

The Money: £10 per day for food and travel.

The Hours: Full time Monday-Friday. On a normal day, working hours are 9:30 till 6. We can't remember the last time we had a normal day.

Application Deadline: Midday Monday 10th August.

How to Apply: Send a one page CV with cover letter to Successful applicants may be asked for interviews.
