PETA Norfolk, VA, USA
Mar 13, 2019
Intern
Position Objective: As an advanced intern, you will strive to lend a hand to and learn about PETA's Emergency Response Team. During this internship, you'll jump right in as part of one of PETA's most fast-paced and critical departments, the Cruelty Investigations Department (CID). You will get in on the action and see firsthand the immediate impact that our work has on the lives of many animals.   Not a resident of Virginia? We offer housing for our interns so don’t let that keep you from applying!   The Typical Day of a CID Intern: • Unfortunately, cruelty cases are always pouring in, so a big part of this internship is helping to route incoming correspondence and transcribing telephone calls that could end up in official reports. • In order to gain the most experience, you will be working alongside CID staff members to provide responses to calls for assistance and e-mails. You'll learn how to handle these tough situations. • Some cases require a lot of research, so it's expected that you'll be ready to learn how to track down information on miscellaneous cruelty-to-animals and neglect cases. • From time to time, some information on a case will be tossed your way and we'll look to get your help with note-taking. • This internship does involve some hands-on work with animals, as we'll need help with basic animal care and feeding. Who doesn't love a good dog walk or giving animals some TLC? • Part of your day could consist of administrative tasks, which are necessary to the continuation of our work for animals. • Of course, you'll also perform any other duties assigned by the supervisor.   Qualifications: • For starters, you'll need at least a high school diploma or GED in order to be eligible to apply. • Situations out in the field are very unpredictable, so you'll need to have a strong stomach and know how to keep your cool in tough situations. It's not easy seeing injured animals, but you'll need to be ready to help in a heartbeat. • Exceptional organizational skills and attention to detail will help you keep everything on track, so résumés with grammar or other errors will be rejected. Sorry, but we can't risk it. • Consider yourself to be great at keeping secrets? Great, because we need somebody who can keep confidential information just that—confidential. • Many people say that they "thrive under pressure," but this position is a true test of that. We take on multiple cases at a time, and lives depend on us! • You must support PETA's philosophy and have the ability to professionally advocate our positions on issues. • Naturally, you'd need to be committed to the objectives of the organization.

Interns will be responsible for the daily operation of their departments, including management of a team of volunteers. On the job training and an induction will be provided in the first week, with continual guidance from a dedicated member of the trustee board. You will have the opportunity to measure your progress through regular check-ins with the Interns Manager. Interns will join the volunteers during the setting up and taking down of the site. Successful applicants for the internship programme will work well as part of a team as well as independently, enjoy taking on new challenges and responsibility and have an interest in sustainability, charity work, ecotourism, and outdoor living. You will gain considerable management experience and learn about the challenges involved in sustainable living and environmental education. Green & Away is an entirely volunteer-run organisation and as an educational charity, teaching our interns has been an integral part of our work for over ten years. All interns are expected to stay on site throughout the season and are provided with 3 vegetarian meals a day and a space to pitch your own tent. There will be regular days off and some opportunities for off-site group activities, for example canoeing or visiting likeminded eco-businesses, during quieter periods of the season.   Catering Management Green & Away is seeking up to three interns who will be responsible for the day-to-day running of our field kitchen, catering daily for approximately 30 people in between events and up to 200 when an event is in progress. Daily responsibilities include, but are not limited to: planning vegetarian menus, stock management, placing orders with our local and organic suppliers, food preparation and baking, and ensuring the hygiene and tidiness of the kitchen area. You will lead and motivate a team of volunteers, developing rotas to ensure the tasks of the kitchen are completed on time. The role therefore requires a high level of organisation, a passion for food, a real enjoyment of working with others, and great people skills. Experience of working with food is desirable but not essential as your skills will develop over the course of the internship. This is a demanding but rewarding role which would suit those seeking experience in managing a team, event catering, food preparation, ethical procurement, and resource management.   Event Management Green & Away is seeking an intern to help coordinate event bookings, assist with event management and take care of delegates during their stay. You will take a leading role in liaising with event organisers before and during the event while you are site and you will be the main point of contact for event organisers for the duration of their time at Green & Away. Responsibilities will involve liaising with volunteers, guests and the kitchen in the run-up to and during events and assisting the Event Manager to see to a well-run event. You will work closely with the Hospitality and Office departments to lead teams of volunteers to ensure that event attendees have the best possible experience of Green & Away, and gain direct experience of managing events with upwards of 200 attendees. You will also take the lead on organising events such as our annual Open Day, to showcase Green & Away to our local community and nearby groups, businesses and organisations. This placement will offer you practical experience in events management, sustainable tourism, and customer service and will suit an organised, confident individual, who enjoys taking initiative, multi-tasking and problem solving.   Hospitality and Housekeeping Green & Away is seeking two interns to help take care of our guests, assist with running our bar and cafe and manage the on site accommodation throughout our busy season. You will be the main point of contact for guests from the moment they arrive until the end of their stay and will be responsible for furnishing and keeping the rental tents and camping field in perfect condition for our guests. Responsibilities will involve administering online accommodation bookings and liaising with volunteers, guests and the Events, Office and Catering departments to ensure that everyone who stays at Green & Away feels welcome and taken care of. You will lead teams to turn around accommodation, clean the facilities, restock and run the bar and café as well as maintaining the wider aesthetics of the site. The placement will offer you practical experience in sustainable tourism, hospitality and customer service. This will suit a warm, creative and organised individual with an eye for detail, who enjoys helping others, multi-tasking and doesn't mind a bit of elbow grease.   Office Management Green & Away is seeking up to two interns who will be responsible for maintaining the day-to-day running of the venue, managing the attendance of our volunteers as well as undertaking research projects such as funding sources and future events to further the organisation both as a business and an environmentally minded charity. Daily responsibilities include, but are not limited to, answering phone calls and responding to emails, financial admin and accounting, placing food/supplies orders and generally supporting the Co-ordinator to ensure everything runs smoothly on-site. You will also be the point of call for volunteers, welcoming and inducting new arrivals (both guests and volunteers), managing job rotas, assisting other interns in their role and liaising with our local neighbours and suppliers. You will be tasked with research projects, preparation for future seasons as well as the running of our social media accounts. This placement will offer you an opportunity to learn about project and office management, problem-solving, working in a charity and events organising. This varied role will suit a highly organised, approachable, conscientious and driven individual, with a good eye for detail and who is comfortable with responsibility. You will be as happy doing basic daily admin as you are at undertaking detailed research.   Technical and Maintenance Green & Away is seeking two interns with an interest in renewable energy, sustainability, off-grid living, up-cycling and construction. You will be involved in various tasks such as structural checks and maintenance of marquees and tents, installation of plumbing, lighting of fires and restocking firewood, and building or repairing items on site. You will also help set up and maintain our solar arrays, making sure the charging station and lights are ready for the needs of all on site, therefore some knowledge/interest of electrical engineering is desirable but not essential. Often physical and hands-on, this placement will also offer you experience in teamwork and leadership, site and task management as well as the practical aspects of maintenance, renewable technologies, health and safety and sustainability. This challenging and rewarding role would be best suited to a motivated, creative individual who relishes working outdoors and is not afraid of undertaking plenty of responsibility.   Sustainability and Education Green & Away is seeking an intern to undertake tasks dedicated to sustainability strategy and education management during the season. This role will involve research, assessment and presentation of Green & Away’s sustainable practices, such as analysing our food procurement and measuring our carbon footprint. You will also be responsible for arranging workshops and talks for volunteers and guests through a varied education programme, assisted by the trustees. You will be laying the groundwork for Green & Away to undertake new projects and improve on its practices as an ethical organisation and environmental charity, coming up with new ideas and written policies. This placement will offer you experience in research, report preparation and project management and is best suited to an organised, independent worker with a passion for sustainable development or outdoor education.   Duration and travel All internships will start on 10 June 2019 and end around mid August. Successful applicants will camp on site for the duration of the placement and will have about two days off a week. Green & Away is located 3 miles from Worcester which has a main line rail station and buses which come to a few minutes walk of our site. Please see our website for travel information.   Accommodation and facilities Green & Away takes place outdoors and under canvas. You will need your own tent, however we may be able to arrange one for you if you are unable to bring one. Full board is provided (3 vegetarian meals a day and regular tea breaks with cake!). The site has hot showers, clothes washing facilities and composting toilets. A licensed bar, comfortable sitting areas and arts and crafts facilities come as and when we have built them. There is WiFi and phone/laptop charging facilities. Please note, when you first arrive the field will be almost empty (although our toilets and showers will be operating), so please be prepared for this. Although G&A is set up on the outskirts of a small village near Worcester, the nearest shop and post office is 2 miles away. Costs Green & Away does not pay any of its volunteers, trustees or interns. We provide 3 vegetarian meals a day to everyone volunteering on site. Your only cost throughout the internship will be your travel or any drinks and snacks you choose from the bar. How to apply Applications should consist of a CV and a one-page covering letter explaining why you would like to be an intern with Green & Away, which internship you are applying for, which aspects of our work particularly appeal to you, and what you would bring to the role. You are welcome to apply for a placement in more than one department.
