Equality Diversity & Inclusion Intern (Environmental Charity)
Newark - Office Base with flexibility to work from Home
Full time (35 Hours per week)
Our client is working to bring wildlife back to our land and seas and make nature a part of life for everyone. They're helping to make life better - for wildlife, for people and for future generations.
Their vision is a world where people are close to nature, with land and seas rich in wildlife. Unfortunately, they know that not everyone has equal access to nature and that the environment sector is one of the least diverse professions in the UK. They want to change this by putting equality, diversity and inclusion at the heart of the Trusts.
They are looking for someone who has an interest in nature and a passion for equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI). The role will support The Wildlife Trusts in cultivating a consciously inclusive and diverse movement, and progressing our client's commitment to tackling inequality within the conservation sector.
They understand it can be difficult to start a career in the conservation sector. Their EDI Internship offers an opportunity for you to gain experience in different aspects of EDI whilst learning more about the work of the wider teams, such as Policy and Campaigning, Communications, Health and Education, and Human Resources.
They are looking for someone with the following:
* A passion for equality, social and environmental justice, and inclusion
* An inclusive and respectful approach
* Skills to develop engaging written materials e.g. blogs, articles, or reports
* Capability of working collaboratively with a range of stakeholders
* Ability to research, innovate, create, and implement new ideas
* Good IT skills and knowledge
* Excellent interpersonal skills
About the Trust:
They are determined to reconnect people everywhere to the natural world and empower people to take action for nature's recovery.
The trust is a federated movement of charities dedicated to this vision and driven by their beliefs. Together they have 850,000 members, 35,000 volunteers and 2,000 staff across the UK, Alderney and the Isle of Man. They value courage, respect, integrity, trust and responsibility.
They are wild about inclusion! They know wildlife will benefit from their people being as diverse as nature is, so they particularly encourage applications from people who are underrepresented within the sector, including people from minority ethnic backgrounds and people with disabilities.
As a Disability Confident employer, they are committed to offering an interview to anyone with a disability that meets all the essential criteria for the post
