Introduction Green & Away is looking for several passionate and hardworking individuals to join the summer internship programme across 6 departments: - Catering - Events - Hospitality - Office management - Technical and maintenance - Sustainability and education. 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 both your Line Manager and 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. We are also recruiting for two residencies: - Artist in residence - Scientist in residence 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 like minded eco-businesses, during quieter periods of the season. Duration and travel All internships will start on 15th June 2020 (date to be confirmed nearer the time) and end mid-August. Successful applicants will camp on site for the duration of the placement and will have one or two days off a week depending on workload. Green & Away is located 3 miles from Worcester which has a main line rail station and buses which come to within 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 and you let us know in advance. 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.
