Recently graduated or still at Uni and looking to improve your CV by getting work experience for a great national charity in our national office in Huddersfield? Brake has roles available for bright and enthusiastic graduates and undergraduates (or equivalent), some voluntary, some paid.
Graduate volunteer internship programme (3-6 months, voluntary): This is a highly competitive programme open to ambitious graduates who are wanting a charity career in one of these three areas: campaigns (policy and pr), events or fundraising. Working under our experienced officers in one of these three divisions, successful candidates will work for the charity for 3-6 months, doing a range of exciting experience-building tasks in those divisions, such as writing press releases and campaign briefings, talking to journalists, organising launches, and talking to potential funders. (For more information about the breadth of our work and the sort of projects you might get to work on, read this website.) Expect to be immersed in a highly charged environment where everything you do counts, and be given challenging responsibilities and the opportunity to shape your experience with us by proactively developing your own ideas.
Interns often go on to successful careers in permanent positions in similar roles elsewhere or have the opportunity to apply for one of our paid year-long internship programmes that are annually available.
Please note: You must meet all the above criteria; please do not apply if you do not as you will not be considered under any circumstances. Deadline for applications: rolling - applications considered at any time.
Under-graduate volunteer work experience placements: If you are a student looking for charity experience as part of your degree or in your holidays, or a tutor wanting block or day release opportunities for your students, then unpaid placement opportunities may be available at Brake in our campaigns, events and fundraising divisions.
