Campaign Against Antisemitism is inviting applications for our internship programme for students wanting to help us tackle the world’s oldest hatred. Spend two weeks this summer making Britain a safer place for Jews alongside our expert staff and volunteer team who dedicate their time to exposing and countering antisemitism through education and zero-tolerance enforcement of the law.
Are you a budding journalist? A future lawyer? Maybe social media, videos and podcasts are more your thing? Or do you want to know what it takes to run a charitable organisation? During the internship, you will get the opportunity to learn more about how to develop and use your skills to protect the Jewish community. Plus, even when the internship comes to an end, you will remain a key part of our team as you head back to campus, and beyond.
Interns will be placed in one of three teams that have places to offer this year.
- Litigation: Sit with our in-house General Counsel and carry out tasks similar to those of a participant in a vacation scheme at a law firm, undertaking research and helping to draft letters. You will also have the opportunity to sit in on case management meetings and, if the opportunity arises, attend court. This seat is particularly suitable for candidates studying law who wish to apply their knowledge to helping victims of antisemitism and holding the authorities to account.
- Education and Outreach: Improve your pedagogical skills, helping us to craft presentations for all ages, ranging from youth to professionals. Our education and outreach team provide training to university societies, professional regulators, corporations, schools and synagogues and other institutions. Each audience needs materials appropriate to their needs, and interns in this seat will not only help develop these resources but will also have opportunities to hone presentation skills, with a view to applying them back on campus in education programmes designed to combat antisemitism. This seat is particularly suitable for candidates with a background or interest in informal education relating to antisemitism or related subjects.
- Communications: Almost everything that the public sees relating to Campaign Against Antisemitism will have been produced or reviewed by our communications team. This includes articles, work with traditional media, social media output and graphics, Podcast Against Antisemitism, our groundbreaking research, website resources and more. If you enjoy working with words or graphics, with audio tools or in research, or if you like appearing on camera to engage viewers online, this seat is for you. Not only will you gain exposure to a wide variety of media, but you will have the opportunity to specialise in one of these fields. Interns in this seat will not need to carry out work in all of the team’s areas of activity, so those more comfortable with words than with appearing on screen, or who prefer graphics to audio, will all find themselves equally at home.
In the application form, you will be asked to choose up to two seats in which you would be happy to intern. Please note that we cannot guarantee placement in a specific seat. If there is a particular area of Campaign Against Antisemitism’s work that interests you, you are invited to tell us about those areas in the free text portions of the application form.
Applicants should expect to engage in collaborative projects with teams outside of their placement.
The internship programme takes place at our office in Central London from 14th to 27th August 2023.
University students and anyone in vocational studies, provided that they are at least eighteen years old, can apply. Please note that this is an unpaid position; applicants will be reimbursed for travel within the Greater London area (travel zones 1-6) as well as for lunch expenses.
The deadline for applications is 16th June 2023. There are very limited spaces available and we recruit on a rolling basis.
