Graduate internship

We are currently recruiting for a full-time, paid graduate internship role at Social Business Brokers CIC, the social enterprise that runs Zero Waste Leeds.

This is a full-time role, for twelve months, to start ASAP. It will be an excellent opportunity for a recent graduate to gain valuable experience working as part of a small team taking an innovative approach to tackling social issues in Leeds.

We are on the look-out for a recent graduate who shares our passion for changing our city and the world.  Someone who is ready to get stuck in to practical projects that make our city a better place.

The primary focus of the role will be to help us to build a movement to help Leeds to become a zero waste city by 2030 - working as part of our Zero Waste Leeds team.

You will work with us to build our highly engaged, local online community - which currently numbers over 15,000 people across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.

You will also join our small team in delivering a number of innovative waste reduction campaigns, on themes including glass recycling and school uniform reuse.

You will also spend time working on our other main project - Empty Homes Doctor.  You will support our Empty Homes Doctors to grow our online presence - so that we can continue to find owners of empty homes - and help them bring their home back into use.

This is the second year that we have recruited for a full time paid graduate internship - following on from other shorter paid internships that we have offered in the past.

Here's what Kirsty Blair, who joined us last year as a graduate intern, and who continues to work with us on a part-time basis, said about the opportunity.

More information on the role, and how to apply, is available here.

The closing date for applications is 9am on Wednesday 24th March.

Online interviews will be held w/c 29th March.
