Current Opportunities

International Development Internship

Contract: Fixed-Term Contract 3 months – full-time 35 hours/week start date
beginning of June 2023
Salary: London Living Wage – £23,302.50 per annum pro rata

The driving force behind this internship is BRAC UK’s commitment to provide a meaningful and mutually beneficial short-term role in international development. The internship is in memorial of our colleague, Helen Turner, who was an advocate for inclusive entry into the sector of international development. In this spirit we have committed fully to making this experience inclusive of all, regardless of gender, race, age, disability, sex, or relationship status.

The successful applicant will be treated like an employee and will be expected to approach the internship as a salaried member of the team. In this way we hope to give our interns a strong platform upon which to build their careers. For the first half of the internship a standard scope of work will be provided to successful applicants which will give them exposure to all working areas within the BRAC UK team; grants management, new business development, communications and finance, as well as engagement with the country teams in Bangladesh and across BRAC International. There will be a primary and ongoing focus on specific tasks with the partnerships team. Depending on the preferences of the successful applicant we will be able to tailor the scope of work for the second half of the internship to meet their interests. In particular, the BRAC UK intern will provide critical support to the partnerships team in their work on international projects and with major donors and partners.
