Ataxia UK is seeking a Communications Intern to provide support across the breath of our communications work. You will work under the guidance of the Communications Officer. The role will allow you to tap into your academic experience and use it in a professional setting. To be successful you must be pro-active, creative, dedicated and self-motivated. The primary responsibility will be to oversee the production of content of the Ataxia Magazine: a quarterly publication that is sent to around 4,000 of Ataxia UK's supporters. The applicant must have confidence in their ability to source relevant stories, conduct interviews and write in a way that is in-keeping with the house style of Ataxia UK. The role will give you the opportunity to gain valuable experience of working within the charity sector and more specifically a communications department. You will also work closely with the fundraising department and will assist in any content production where necessary. The candidate may occasionally be required to work weekends, however the charity encourages flexible working and any time worked will be remunerated in lieu. Six of our last interns have either gained full time employment within the charity sector, or successfully entered into Higher Education. We ask for at least six months commitment to the role and many interns stay with us for a year.
