Oak Foundation Human Rights Internship Programme

Closing date: 04 Jan 2017

The European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (EHRAC) is inviting applications from graduates and post-graduates for a six-month paid human rights internship programme with the Oak Foundation (www.oakfnd.org). It may be possible to extend the internship beyond six months, subject to review.

Please see below for the full intern profile and for more information about applying for the role.

The internship programme is administered by the European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (EHRAC) who have benefitted from the support of the Oak Foundation for ten years.

To apply

Please send your application to ehrac@mdx.ac.uk, including:

  • A CV of no more than three pages that includes your most relevant experience
  • A covering letter explaining how you meet the intern profile and your motivations for applying
  • Proof of eligibility to undertake a paid internship in the UK (scan of passport/visa/other documentation)

Please be aware that we cannot provide visa support for applicants. You must therefore already have the right to live and undertake a paid internship in the UK for the duration of the internship.
