Internships are six months long, and run from January-June and July-December.
All interns assist A4ID’s staff team and are encouraged to attend meetings, contribute ideas and assist in the development of all areas of the charity and its programmes.
There are four different intern roles, each with an individual focus requiring particular skills. Please specify in your application which position you are most interested in and why.
