Web Assistant and IT Support Internship
The Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) is a UK- based non-profit organisation working internationally to protect the environment and defend human rights.
What we do is simple, direct and effective
EJF believes that protecting the environment is not just about quality of life, it is a question of life and death for the world’s poorest people. We believe that environmental security is a human right.
For millions of people around the world, the result of a degraded environment is hunger, brutal poverty and vulnerability.
Our international campaigns tackle grassroots issues that are ‘off the radar’, working in remote and difficult locations and in post-conflict areas where environmental issues and associated human rights problems are neglected. EJF's team documents the issues and creates compelling international campaigns that target opinion formers and decision makers around the globe. EJF provides film and advocacy training to local organisations and activists in the global south, enabling them to document, expose and create long term solutions to environmental problems, generate local support and create a living legacy.
EJF is currently looking to recruit a web assistant and IT support intern to work alongside a dynamic team ensuring that the EJF website is maintained and supporting EJF’s technical development. The role will specifically include assisting with the development of EJF’s website as well as the ongoing development of EJF’s IT resources including ongoing support.
