Political Affairs Internship Programme UK

Political Affairs Internship Programme UK – Unpaid


Are you passionate about fighting global poverty? Do you want to make a change for a better world? Then look no further!

Our remote internships are work from home roles, weekly deadlines must be met, meetings will be held online and a weekly update of your progress submitted.

All positions are unpaid, but we work with schools to ensure college credit is available, if applicable.

While the hiring process is incredibly competitive, we look for a diverse range of backgrounds. We’ve found no correlation between high grades and/or prestigious universities when it comes to determining who will have the biggest impact for the world’s poor. Our selection process focuses on finding great individuals, with a strong work ethic and passion for righting wrongs.

We respond to every application, reply to all queries and always notify you of the outcome of our interviews. Please add borgenproject.org to your list of safe email senders and check your spam/junk email folder to ensure you are receiving our communications. If you haven’t had a reply or have any difficulty applying, please email us at [email protected] and we will respond.
