There will be regular days off and some opportunities for off-site group activities, for example canoeing or visiting like minded eco-businesses, during quieter periods of the season. 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.
