About Chance For Childhood
Chance for Childhood believes that no child should have to fight for a safe, happy childhood. We exist to ensure that every child in Africa can thrive from their early years through to adulthood. Together with partners, supporters, children and their communities, we protect, educate and create lasting change for every child threatened by violence, neglect and conflict.
We specialise in ensuring access to inclusive education and safe spaces so that children in Africa can play, grow, learn and thrive. We have staff in the UK, Rwanda, Ghana and Uganda.
This is an exciting time to join the team for an immersive 12-week experience in a thriving International charity as we are launching our new brand and an innovative advocacy campaign, highlighting the unethical use of children’s images in international charity campaigns.
You will report to the Campaign Director whilst also building relationships across the fundraising, programmes and executive team.
A typical week might include: organising launch event logistics, drafting sponsor communications, liaising with design /print companies, monitoring web traffic, creating progress reports, analysing data in excel (not complicated data), and creating social media content.
Benefits Of The Role
We have a great track record of hosting short-term paid Intern placements across different areas of the business that allows enthusiastic and passionate graduates to gain valuable working experience; develop their skill set; deliver projects end-to-end, and leave with practical and tangible experience. Some of our previous alumni are now pursuing careers in the civil service, the International development sector and the private sector.
