UPDATE: Due to the temporary closure of the Camcycle office in response to the Coronavirus pandemic we have decided not to recruit an intern in 2020.
We plan to resume our internship programme in 2021 when we will be able to provide a full and supported programme of work experience.
Our paid summer internship is back again in 2020 and we are excited to hear from candidates who are passionate about everyday cycling. This is a great opportunity for someone to bring their own knowledge, energy and commitment to their work for our charity, while developing skills and experience that will prepare them for future career opportunities. This is an eight-week programme beginning in July, although we can be flexible on dates and working hours to ensure it is open to as many candidates as possible.
The intern will be working alongside our Executive Director, Roxanne De Beaux, Communications and Community Officer, Anna Williams, and our Administration Officer, Rosamund Humphrey in addition to our team of volunteers. The successful candidate will spend their time working on a key strategic project, our Cambridge Festival of Cycling and providing general support for our campaigning work. Activities are likely to include project planning and management, reviewing planning applications, market research, event organisation and communications including content creation and social media. We will work with the candidate to plan activities that focus on the skills they would like to develop for their chosen career.
We’re dedicated to providing an internship programme of a high standard which will be beneficial for the intern’s professional development. As a charitable organisation, we believe it is important that any internship we offer should be paid, high-quality, open and accessible. Our intern will be a valuable contributor to our team and we look forward to their work making a real impact on our goals.
