Clore Social Leadership identifies and develops exceptional leaders who will change the world around them. We provide high quality training, coaching and powerful networks to ensure that the UK has the social leadership it needs today. Over the last 10 years we have developed a reputation for excellence and our Fellows lead change in fields from financial inclusion to dementia care, international development to housing, and they include social activists, entrepreneurs, charity CEO's and senior managers.  

We are seeking an intern to carry out a wide variety of tasks designed to ensure the smooth running of a small but dynamic team and support the administrative tasks involved in delivering our leadership programmes. The intern will work closely with the Programmes team and the Operations Director.

This is an exciting role for someone wishing to learn about the social sector, poverty, justice and public service.

As an intern at this respected charity, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in everything from programme and events management to communications and Trustee board meetings. You’ll get a good understanding of the breadth of the social sector, and how people and organisations are working toward social change and social justice. You’ll meet Clore Fellows from all sectors and you will develop a good understanding of what it means to be a ‘social leader’. You’ll also work as part of a small but committed team.

We take development of people seriously, and will work with you to find opportunities, develop your skills and experience during your time with us.
