About the Commonwealth Foundation
The Commonwealth Foundation is an intergovernmental organisation established by Heads of Government in support of the belief that the Commonwealth is as much an association of peoples as it is of governments. It is the Commonwealth agency for civil society; a unique, stand-alone organisation established by, funded by, and reporting to governments.
We are looking for an Intern to work for our dynamic cultural programme, Commonwealth Writers. The internship will be London-based and support programme activities, in particular: two websites, www.commonwealthwriters.org and www.addastories.org; and various projects including the Commonwealth Short Story Prize and craft development initiatives. You will also be part of the wider internship programme, which includes internship projects that work across the whole Foundation.
The individual should have strong writing skills, research abilities, experience of working with websites and using social media platforms, the ability to meet tight deadlines, a good knowledge of Microsoft Office, and strong administration skills.
