Background

Amos Trust is a small creative human rights organisation. We seek to challenge injustice, restore rights and create hope. We work with grassroots partners, listening to their needs and acting on their concerns. We set out to build local creative solutions to global issues. We work in three areas where justice is threatened, and rights are ignored.

  1. Street Justice 
    Transforming the lives of girls and young women on the streets so they can live free from abuse.

  2. Palestine Justice
    Campaigning for a just peace and full and equal rights for everyone who calls Palestine and Israel home.

  3. Climate Justice
    Equipping local communities to develop sustainable responses to the impact of climate change.

We are seeking to appoint an Intern/trainee to join our small, highly committed team.

Amos Trust is an exciting and fast-moving organisation. We want to build a movement of people excited about our work and our goals; a community who support our work financially as well as with their actions. As a part of this, the Trust is committed to developing a new, younger support base and to create opportunities for their participation and leadership in our advocacy, fundraising and challenge events.

Intern

  • The Amos Intern position is a new, part-time position within a small 7-strong staff team 

  • The post will be for between 6-12 months depending on the suitable candidates availability 

  • It will be for 2 days a week (approx. 14 hours) with the possibility of additional seasonal work 

  • It is likely that there will be more demand in some weeks and so flexibility within how this time is used will be welcomed. There will be some evening and a limited amount of weekend work involved

  • It will be paid at the relevant level of the minimum wage for the appointed person.

The person appointed will work across all areas of Amos’ work and will gain experience in each of these with the possibility to further pursue specific areas of interest.

There may be options for travel, to visit our international partners, as part of this programme although this will depend on multiple factors which due to the ongoing uncertainties over travel, cannot be confirmed at this stage and we will not be able to guarantee it to candidates. 

The person appointed will be expected to come into the Amos office in the City of London on a weekly basis, but may also do some work from home. The successful candidate will report to the Director, work closely with the Head of Communications and be mentored by the Head of Partnerships and Gender who will ensure that they are inducted and appropriately supported in the post. 

Intern’s roles

The intern will undertake the following tasks — many of which are seasonal.

  1. Produce and administrate Amos’ webinar series
    Assist in booking in speakers/performers: confirm dates, chase up bookings, obtain information and liaise with speakers, for our successful webinar programme which we’ll be re-launching in the Autumn. A similar role will be required for our new podcast which we are launching in October/November. You will be trained how to host these live Zoom sessions and may also at times be asked to present at the webinars.

  2. Assist with Amos public events
    You will support the Community and Supporter Engagement team at events and in running various activities such as Run the Wall.

  3. Assist the Head of Partnerships and Gender
    You will support our Head of Partnerships and Gender in obtaining stories and updates from our partner organisations for use in our fundraising and across our social media channels.

  4. Assist the Operations team
    You will set up online trip briefings and ensure that those presenting and joining our trips have the information they need. You will also undertake other tasks as needed within Amos’ travel programme. You will assist the administrator with fulfilling online shop orders.

  5. Pursue particular areas of interest
    Amos has three areas of work as outlined above. We will appoint an intern who has a particular interest in one or more of these areas. We will look to encourage them to pursue this interest further, whether that be campaigning on climate justice, researching on Palestinian rights or on the promotion of girls and young women’s rights.

  6. Pursue a particular skill or activity
    If the person appointed has particular skills i.e. writing, editing, performing, sport and fitness activities — we will, when possible, look to create opportunities for the intern to pursue these within the Amos programme.

  7. Other areas essential to the running of Amos Trust
    You will be asked to undertake a variety of tasks that are essential for the smooth running of Amos Trust i.e. going to the Post Office. It is the responsibility of the entire Amos team to ensure that our office at St Clements is a clean, safe working environment and you will be expected to assist in this.
