Type:Full Time
 

Full Description

International development is an incredibly rewarding career, but getting your first job is hard. This exciting programme will give someone from Jersey the chance to spend a year learning the ropes with the professionals, including six months on assignment in a developing country. Starting in October 2020, you’ll spend two months in JOA’s office in St Helier, before transferring to UK Charity Send a Cow in Bath. By April or May you’ll be ready for your first field posting in one of Send a Cow’s offices in Africa - probably Ethiopia, where Jersey is planning to roll out its hugely-successful dairy programme for smallholder farmers. You’ll be paid an entry-level salary of £20k, plus a modest UK living allowance. You should have demonstrable interest in international development and the proven ability to manage a full and varied workload. Experience of working or travelling in developing countries is also desirable. No age limit applies, and career-changers are welcome. However, you should be serious about embarking on a fulfilling but demanding new path, including being prepared to spend significant time in challenging places. You must also have the right to live and work in Jersey. The deadline is 3rd August 2020. For more details and to apply please see www.joa.je/internship
