Mercy Corps is looking for an intern to support the people management learning initiative, called “People with Possibility.” In the course of this internship the intern will be engaged in collating materials, idea generation, research, and strategy. Mercy Corps’ HQ offices each have a slightly different flavor but what remains is the commitment to our culture and our mission. We’re looking for someone who can bring their own personality and creativity to this roll with a unique interest in people issues.

Candidates should ensure their availability to interview on these dates before applying. All applicants should be able to demonstrate the ability to work in the UK by the start date of the internship. Apply now!
