We recruit 4 intern positions twice a year
  • May / June recruitment (July to December internship period). Deadline to receive applications 30th May
  • November / December recruitment (January to June internship period). Deadline to receive applications 30th November

Interns are an invaluable part of our small team and will have the opportunity to get experience of direct work with young refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants. The ability to speak a refugee community language(s) is highly desirable. The positions are unpaid, but lunch and travel expenses within Greater London are covered. All interns will need to provide 2 references, undergo a Young Roots DBS check and attend Young Roots safeguarding training.

Young Roots recognises the positive value of diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination. We welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds. As an organisation that supports refugees, asylum seekers and migrants, we particularly welcome applications from within these communities, as they are currently under-represented in the organisation.

To apply

If you are interested in applying for any of the positions, please download the role descriptions below and submit an application form to by the deadlines above. (You’re welcome to apply for more than one of the internships but you only need to fill in the form once).
