Recruitment & Operations Intern
Corporate Accountability stops transnational corporations from devastating democracy, trampling human rights, and destroying our planet. We are building a world rooted in justice where corporations answer to people, not the other way around -- a world where every person has access to clean water, healthy food, a safe place to live, and the opportunity to reach their full human potential.
We are deeply committed to prioritizing the leadership of those who bear the brunt of corporate abuse: women, people of color, low-income people, people in the Global South, and LGBTQ folks around the world, therefore potential candidates holding these identities are strongly encouraged to apply for our internship program.
Our internships are a unique opportunity for you to gain valuable corporate campaigning and nonprofit experience, cultivate your interests in social justice, strengthen your understanding of a fast-paced campaign organization, and gain critical skills and experience. In the recruitment and operations internship, you will intern alongside our dynamic, passionate recruitment team and learn skills such as networking and organizing and the day to day administration needed to be part of an operations and recruitment team. Interns will come away from the experience ready to take action and apply these skills to the social change issues they want to address in their local communities or schools.
As the recruitment and operations intern you will support our organizers in implementing an outreach program to create partnerships with local schools, universities, foundations, and community groups, with an eye towards race-equity. This intern position will also have the unique opportunity to refine new tools to support our staff and intern’s professional development at Corporate Accountability. You will also develop an implementation plan for benefits to strengthen our work environment that matches our organizational culture and campaign rigor. The recruitment and operations intern will help ensure that all new job and internship openings are published on websites and listservs to help us reach the best potential candidates.
