This is an exciting one week opportunity for five students to experience the day-to-day operations of a busy charity.

We are a charity working to build a positive legacy for the late Jo Cox MP. We work closely with individuals across the country, local organisations, national companies and government departments to make a positive impact to communities in the UK through the following:

-Tackling loneliness in the UK

-The Great Get Together Campaign

-Inspiring and supporting women into politics

We are a small team who support one another to reach our full potential and make as big an impact as possible in Jo’s honour.

This will be a 1-week (5 days) virtual placement. It will include learning about how our charity operates, the opportunity to work with the CEO, as well as supporting the Great Get Together team with 2020 campaign follow up.

We look forward to your application!
