Job Description

Sustainability and Education

Green & Away is seeking an intern to undertake tasks dedicated to sustainability strategy and education management during the season. This role will involve research, assessment and presentation of Green & Away’s sustainable practices, such as analysing our food procurement and measuring our carbon footprint. You will also be responsible for arranging workshops and talks for volunteers as part of our weekly Education Afternoons and guests through a varied education programme, assisted by the trustees.

You will be laying the groundwork for Green & Away to undertake new projects and improve on its practices as an ethical organisation and environmental charity, coming up with new ideas and written policies.

This placement will offer you experience in research, report preparation and project management and is best suited to an organised, independent worker with a passion for sustainable development or outdoor education.

Duration and travel

All internships will start on 15th June 2020 (date to be confirmed nearer the time) and end mid-August. Successful applicants will camp on site for the duration of the placement and will have one or two days off a week depending on workload.

Green & Away is located 3 miles from Worcester which has a main line rail station and buses which come to within a few minutes’ walk of our site. Please see our website for travel information.

Accommodation and facilities

Green & Away takes place outdoors and under canvas. You will need your own tent, however, we may be able to arrange one for you if you are unable to bring one and you let us know in advance. Full board is provided (3 vegetarian meals a day and regular tea breaks with cake!). The site has hot showers, clothes washing facilities and composting toilets.

A licensed bar, comfortable sitting areas and arts and crafts facilities come as and when we have built them. There is WiFi and phone/laptop charging facilities. Please note, when you first arrive the field will be almost empty (although our toilets and showers will be operating), so please be prepared for this.

Although G&A is set up on the outskirts of a small village near Worcester, the nearest shop and post office is 2 miles away.


Green & Away does not pay any of its volunteers, trustees or interns. We provide 3 vegetarian meals a day to everyone volunteering on site. Your only cost throughout the internship will be your travel or any drinks and snacks you choose from the bar.

How to apply

Applications should consist of a CV and a one-page covering letter explaining why you would like to be an intern with Green & Away, which internship you are applying for, which aspects of our work particularly appeal to you, and what you would bring to the role. You are welcome to apply for a placement in more than one department.

Interviews will be conducted via Skype/video conferencing on a rolling basis with selections being made in May, so apply as early as you can.

Please send applications by 13th April 2020 by email to Eve at: [email protected]
