We are excited to announce that we are now welcoming applications for our Social Enterprise Internship Programme!
This programme will run from the 4th July to the 15th of July 2022 and is available to anyone over the age of 18 who has an interest in working for a social enterprise or for a charity. This internship programme will offer valuable insights into the rewarding VCSE sector. Successful applicants will be working alongside the central Bounceback Food team and they will gain experience of the many different aspects of working in an expanding social enterprise.
Our annual social enterprise programme has run since 2018. This has allowed us to support people interested in gaining experience in the sector. Although our head office is based in Manchester, we welcome applicants from around the world as we support remote positions.
The 2022 programme will pay a UK living wage to successful applicants for the duration of the internship (up to a maximum of 30 hours per successful applicant).
There will be three positions available for the 2022 programme. Interns will work on a variety of projects including marketing, events organisation, fundraising and publishing. We also encourage applicants with specific skills (e.g. video editing, web design, nutrition, recipe development) to apply.
Successful candidates will have the following skills and personal attributes:
- Experience with social media platforms, especially Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
- Strong levels of personal organisation.
- Interest in the VCSE sector.
- Demonstrable writing experience (especially writing copy).
- Experience with event-planning platforms like Eventbrite is preferred but not essential.
The Application Process
Before applying, we strongly recommend that you spend some time researching our organisation via our website and social media channels (including Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Podcast) so that you can tailor your application to suit our organisation. If you are shortlisted, you’ll be invited to a Zoom interview w/c 25th April 2022.
We particularly welcome applications from disabled and Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) candidates as BAME and disabled people are currently under-represented in the social enterprise sector. We also welcome applications from LGB, Trans and non-binary candidates.
