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.
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.

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

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.
