Come and help us make a difference
This internship is specifically and exclusively designed for BAME individuals in the UK, with the intention of giving future leaders a step up and into the environment, conservation and human-rights professional community. We are doing this in recognition that within this sector - and particularly across conservation and environment - there is a significant underrepresentation of the BAME community in leadership positions.
This is neither acceptable nor wise, the sector's ability to leverage change is diminished by this absence and is tarnished by its failure to act on it. EJF is therefore initiating a pilot project to recruit and mentor a member of the BAME community, early in their career (within three years of graduating with a first or second degree) within this paid internship "Environment, Conservation and Human Rights Leadership".
EJF is looking for an experienced, determined and motivated person based in Berlin who has a deep understanding of German policy and decision-making. A large focus of your work will be on enhancing Germany’s role in improving global oceans governance through increased transparency, however there will also be involvement in other EJF campaigns, such as climate and environmental justice. We are looking for someone with a passion for our work and the ability and talent to maintain and build EJF’s network of relevant German decision-makers across the legislative and executive branches to achieve positive change for the long-term health of our oceans and natural environment.
The Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF), Oceana, The Pew Charitable Trusts, The Nature Conservancy and WWF have formed the EU IUU Coalition working together to ensure that the EU maintains and improves its policies to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing.
To support the delivery of these objectives, the coalition is seeking a full-time researcher who will be responsible for producing and supporting relevant research and other publications required for the coalition’s advocacy work. The individual we seek will have research and writing skills and will be capable of working with a dispersed and diverse multinational team. Good communications skills, initiative and drive are important.
This is a rare opportunity to work at a senior level in the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF): one of the world's leading non-profits working at the intersection of environmental conservation and human rights.
This new senior role as part of the Senior Management Team (SMT) will coordinate and help to evaluate EJF’s UK and international teams in order to optimise outputs, efficiency and our global impact. The role will cut across EJF’s current campaigns to protect oceans, global climate, forests and wildlife.
A rare and exciting opportunity to work with the Environmental Justice Foundation investigations and film teams to help design and implement investigations, developing advocacy materials (reports, briefings and film/photos) alongside work to identify and recruit candidates for our Activist Training programme, providing distance management with a specific focus on film commissions and investigations.
The role will focus on EJF’s campaigns to gather the evidence and visual materials that underpin and support our campaigns and advocacy work. It is a unique opportunity to work with an international leader in environmental protection and human rights.
EJF is working in Indonesia to combat environmental crimes including illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing as well as human rights abuses on fishing vessels. In 2021 EJF launched a new project entitled ‘Building Indonesian journalists’ capacity to investigate and report on environmental crimes including IUU fishing, wildlife trafficking and deforestation’. This project is supported by the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs of the US Embassy to Indonesia.
This is a unique and exciting opportunity for a highly motivated and experienced person to join the Environmental Justice Foundation’s (EJF) Ocean Programme in West Africa, including two large country programmes in Ghana and Liberia.
