why become a positive impact intern?
what you'll gain from working with us:
Employability- Many of our interns have found their experience with us to be essential when applying for future job roles, and has lead to them getting offers.
Ownership of your work- You are given responsibility from the very start, and will be managing your own programme or campaign. This means that you can be creative when directing your work, learn project management skills, and areas that you want to focus on in your own learning.
A wide range of skills- Most of our roles use many different social media and content creation platforms. You'll have the chance to work with these and gain marketing experience.
Achieve a meaningful impact- You will work with different communities in a variety of ways, providing education and spreading the message of sustainability in the event industry. This means you can empower others through your own work and learning, and gain an insight into a growing and changing sector.
One of the best things about my internship at Positive Impact was the responsibility I was given from day one. This enabled me to be creative in my role and gain skills as well as confidence in my abilities to be independent and do good work. The whole team was incredibly supportive and helpful, and it was inspiring to work in such a proactive female environment. My progression from an internship to managing new interns built my leadership and organisational skills. Positive Impact was hugely influential in helping me secure my current job as Programme Officer at Climate Parliament in Brighton.
My name is Nadia Jackson and I joined Positive Impact in August 2016 for 3 months. As a recent graduate in Events Management from Sheffield Hallam, I wanted to gain project management skills in an events agency. This internship gave me the opportunity to do so by having a key role in many of the different campaigns and having to manage ongoing tasks to contribute towards a bigger goal along with daily or weekly ad hoc tasks. The biggest challenge for me has been trusting my own instinct and having confidence with writing or producing content for clients or partners. The women in the office are so inspiring and drive me to enhance my skills in areas I feel weakest in; making the first move, speaking on the phone and thinking strategically and on a broader scale/impact.
Positive impact gave me the skills and experience to gain me a great job in the journalism sector. Without the skills achieved with Positive Impact I would not have nearly as good a portfolio and C.V. to show to potential employers. All of the managers and staff are very flexible to work with and make it incredibly easy to balance other commitments around the placement. I couldn’t recommend it enough!
I completed my internship at Positive Impact soon after having graduated from the University of Manchester in History & Sociology. The people at Positive Impact are amazing – the girls in the office were very driven, friendly and highly supportive throughout my time there. It is the perfect environment for any recent graduate keen to develop or transition into an office working environment. The internship gave me the opportunity to improve many skills including organisation, leadership, social media, networking and communication. In other internships its unlikely you would you be given the level of responsibility you are in this one. I can now say I managed a global social media campaign in CSR Shareday and interviewed high-profile international contacts over the phone, as well as many other achievements in my time. The internship has not only increased my confidence massively and accelerated my personal development, it has also taught me practical skills in many areas that I am now actively applying to my own social media business.
