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

- Bringing communities together through the Great Winter Get Together campaign

- Building a better life and supporting more women into politics

- Protecting vulnerable people around the world

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 and the opportunity to work with the CEO.

We look forward to your application!
