Campaigns Intern – The Role

WWF’s Earth Hour focuses the world’s attention on our brilliant planet and how to protect it. It’s a unique annual event, whereby hundreds of millions of people come together on the same night, all across the world. The campaign engages the mass public to create a positive force for change and aims to keep climate change and environmental issues on the media agenda.

You will play key role in developing Earth Hour 2019 in Scotland by helping shape strategy and setting up delivery. This will include reviewing existing and developing new resources to support our partners, creating tools kits for key audiences and working with designers to produce social media and website assets. You will get involved in supporting special events too. You will also reach out to existing and potential partners to ensure their involvement.

This is an outstanding opportunity to develop your skills in project and partnership management as well as communications and marketing. You will also gain valuable experience working for a leading global NGO.

Comfortable working as part of a team, you will be highly organised and good at planning and meeting deadlines. You will also possess strong communications skills and the ability to write and edit engaging content.

Who are we?

WWF believes in a future where people and nature thrive.

Best known as the world’s leading conservation body, we’ve seen first-hand how wildlife, the environment and human activity are all interlinked.

That’s why our passion for safeguarding the natural world has to be backed up by other environmental action – tackling the global threat of climate change (through our big global campaigns like Earth Hour) and helping people to change the way they live to ease pressure on natural resources.

WWF is at the heart of global activities in all these areas. We have teams of highly skilled professionals working with governments, businesses and communities here in the UK and around the world.
