Intern

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre and PWESCR

Details:

  • Location: Delhi, India
  • Contract Type: Internship
  • Closing Date: 07/07/2018

PWESCR’s ongoing volunteer internship programme typically consists of a minimum of four consecutive calendar months of work in the Delhi (India) office. This year, PWESCR is partnering with the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre on a mutually beneficial programme where interns gain valuable exposure to a wide range of women's human rights issues and knowledge of South Asian region, while at the same time contributing to the organizations’ vision of a world in which businesses respect and advance human rights and communities and workers are empowered to secure their rights and gain accountability for abuse. We require at least four months but prefer longer periods. We are looking to hire someone as early as July 2018.

Interns will be monitoring news about companies’ impacts on human rights, including social and environmental issues, and providing support to projects seeking to raise awareness about business and human rights. We are a small team and often ask interns to help with a variety of other tasks as well (see description below). 

We are looking for an enthusiastic, reliable, and well-organized individual committed to advancing human rights. Applicants should also have some knowledge about business and human rights. They will need the ability to concisely communicate and demystify large amounts of complex information. They should be self-motivated and able to work independently, while functioning well as a member of a small team. They will need research skills, but also must be willing to do a large amount of routine data input efficiently and accurately. Attention to detail is essential.
