Work details

Interns must be available for at least three days a week and for a minimum of 8 weeks. Most internships last between two and three months. In unusual circumstances, we can make exceptions to this. The working day is 10am to 5pm although people often start earlier and finish later. Publish What You Fund is located within Tiri at their London Bridge office. Tiri is an independent non-governmental organisation that works with governments, business and civil society to find practical solutions to making integrity work. For more details see www.tiri.org

We will reimburse interns’ travel costs to and from work (within London) and provide £5 a day food allowance. We will also cover any other expenses incurred in the course of your work.

Training on website and database management will be provided.

Internships are not a prelude to employment. Interns are volunteers and do not need a work visa. Care is taken to ensure all recruitment issues are discussed transparently and interns are given equal opportunity to apply for any positions arising. Support is also offered with finding a job elsewhere.

To apply, please send your CV and a covering letter, outlining why you want to intern at Publish What You Fund and why you are suitable for the role, to info(AT)publishwhatyoufund.org by Tuesday 12th May.
