Are you passionate about social change? Do you want to build up your skills and experience in the refugee sector?
We need you!
This internship offers a personalised training year in a friendly and supportive local organisation in Bristol living and working in solidarity with destitute asylum seekers. A year to learn, be inspired and make positive change all rolled into one!
Bristol Hospitality Network (BHN) is a registered charity with five part-time staff and over 100 volunteers. By living together with refused asylum seekers and through advocacy and campaigning, we aim to end destitution in Bristol among destitute asylum seekers. We are recruiting an intern who will live in our men’s house alongside asylum-seekers we are working to support. Meanwhile, we will support our intern to develop their own project in an area of their choice to develop the work we do as well as their own portfolio of skills. Applicants will need to be strongly motivated toward justice for refused asylum seekers and be keen to live in a culturally diverse community alongside destitute asylum seekers.
This internship will suit a post-graduate student, a post-university gap year student, or anyone looking to spend time developing their skills in third sector organisations in between full time paid work. The live-in role is suitable for men or couples but may not feel comfortable for single women as the house is nearly all men. If you would like to apply for a live-out internship, please contact us for more information.
The sought person(s) would need to be able to commit 15-18 hours each week from September 2018 to at least August 2019 as a live-in intern with Bristol Hospitality Network. A reduced hours option may also be available for an additional live-out intern, subject to discussion.
Closing Date: Saturday, 1 September, 2018 - 22:00
How to Apply: Email firstname.lastname@example.org with a CV and covering letter (on no more than 1 page of A4) explaining how you meet the person specification (please do this point by point to help us score your application).
You are welcome to visit our welcome centre on Mondays 12-2pm by prior arrangement with Rachael to get to know us a bit and meet some of the house members.
