Russian speaking NGO skills internship
Closing date: 25 Sep 2017
The European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (EHRAC) is inviting applications from Russian speakers for a four-month internship placement (2-3 days per week). EHRAC is based within the School of Law at Middlesex University and operates as a non-governmental organisation (NGO).
We will consider applications on a rolling basis until the vacancy is filled, as we would like the successful candidate to start as soon as possible. Unfortunately we can only accept candidates who already have the right to work in the UK, as we cannot facilitate visa applications.
The four-month internship placement will take place in EHRAC’s offices in Middlesex University. Successful candidates will be required to carry out both substantive and administrative tasks relating to EHRAC’s work.
TASKS WILL INCLUDE:
Administrative office tasks such as taking minutes, filing and assisting with organising events; writing case summaries and monitoring the Russian-speaking press and producing updates on coverage; translating correspondence between EHRAC staff and partners.
EHRAC maintains duplicate legal case files in London for all of our cases at the European Court. These files are in Russian and English, and maintaining them is critical to our work. In the first few weeks of any internship, learning how to maintain legal files will be a primary task, with additional duties being added according to the intern’s interests and EHRAC’s needs.
