Work for us
Working for the Jack Petchey Foundation isn’t quite the same as just ‘having a job’.
The Jack Petchey Foundation is a youth-focused grant maker located near Canary Wharf in the heart of London’s Docklands. Young people are at the centre of everything we do, and our values underpin our day to day work. The work we do really does make a difference to young people’s lives across London and Essex.
We have a dedicated, friendly workforce and enjoy a light, modern office with a spacious garden, fully equipped kitchen and table football and table tennis facilities!
We are committed to ensuring our staff have a good work-life balance and offer all our employees a comprehensive package of benefits including pension scheme, life insurance, childcare vouchers, private healthcare insurance with reduced cost gym membership and a cycle to work scheme.
Events and Communications Assistant (12 month paid internship)
This is an exciting opportunity to join the Jack Petchey Foundation for one year to help deliver inspiring events and communications across a range of our programmes, to enable young people across London and Essex to reach their potential. You will gain experience across a variety of projects and take part in a year-long training programme with other interns, supported by a mentor.
We are seeking a dynamic, efficient and creative person with a flair for organisation and promotion. You will need to be ambitious and interested in developing your Events, PR and Social Media skills as well as general organisational and programme management experience. You will be working primarily on the Jack Petchey Foundation’s external communications and our successful internship programme.
Alongside this interesting and varied role, you will also have the opportunity to take part in the Jack Petchey Internship Programme training and development opportunities throughout the year as part of a cohort of 40 interns from youth organisations across London and Essex, giving you chance to develop your skills and build a network of contacts. We will provide support and bespoke training opportunities for you along the way.
This role is paid at London Real Living Wage.
