Summer internship – Green & Away is looking for several passionate and hardworking individuals to join the summer internship programme across 6 departments:

The roles described below are a general overview of duties and responsibilities. These roles are flexible and may be altered to suit both the needs of the organisation and the skills of the candidates.

Green & Away is an entirely volunteer-run organisation and as an educational charity, teaching our interns has been an integral part of our work for over ten years. All interns are expected to stay on site throughout the season and are provided with 3 vegetarian meals a day and a space to pitch your own tent. 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.

About Green & Away

Green & Away is a tented sustainable non-profit events venue based in Worcestershire, available to hire for conferences, courses, celebrations and eco-camping. Established in 1990, we are also an educational charity and aim to inspire and encourage environmental and social change through experiential learning and sustainable living in practice.

Duration and travel

All internships will start on 15th June 2020 (date to be confirmed nearer the time) and end mid-August. Successful applicants will camp on site for the duration of the placement and will have one or two days off a week depending on workload. Green & Away is located 3 miles from Worcester which has a main line rail station and buses which come to within a few minutesโ€™ walk of our site. Please see our website for travel information.

Accommodation and facilities

Green & Away takes place outdoors and under canvas. You will need your own tent, however, we may be able to arrange one for you if you are unable to bring one and you let us know in advance. Full board is provided (3 vegetarian meals a day and regular tea breaks with cake!). The site has hot showers, clothes washing facilities and composting toilets.

A licensed bar, comfortable sitting areas and arts and crafts facilities come as and when we have built them. There is WiFi and phone/laptop charging facilities. Please note, when you first arrive the field will be almost empty (although our toilets and showers will be operating), so please be prepared for this.

Although G&A is set up on the outskirts of a small village near Worcester, the nearest shop and post office is 2 miles away.

Costs transparency

Green & Away does not pay any of its volunteers, trustees or interns. We provide 3 vegetarian meals a day to everyone volunteering on site. Your only cost throughout the internship will be your travel or any drinks and snacks you choose from the bar.
