International Development Internship

BRAC UK is offering a 3 month paid internship this summer in memorial of our colleague Helen Turner. This internship will invite the successful candidate into the world of fundraising for a major global NGO, BRAC. Working majorly alongside the partnerships team, the international development interrn will see fundraising from prospecting donors to contracts being signed, they will learn about project and financial reporting, and see how communications and advocacy are crucial in raising the profile of BRAC. 

Overview of the role

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.

In close collaboration with the Partnerships team, Finance team, and Communications and Advocacy team, the intern will provide essential support in grant and contract management, business development, finance and administration, communications and advocacy, and more.
