Fundraising & Participant Engagement Intern

Want to take that step up in your career with an organisation dedicated to challenging inequality?
At Oxfam, we’re ending the injustice of poverty. For everyone. For good. We work alongside those impacted by disasters, and help them rebuild afterwards. We confront the causes that keep people poor, like extreme inequality, discrimination against women, climate change, and the eviction of people from their land. We work alongside people living in less wealthy countries to build better lives for themselves. For Oxfam staff this work gets us out of bed with the certainty that our work day is making a difference.
We need someone who:
- Gets a buzz communicating with people from of all walks of life.
- Is inspired by the challenge of doing the best possible with every donated dollar so that we ensure the best impact for our mission.
- Is a dynamic self-starter who shares our values of Courage, Justice and Connectedness.

Sitting within the Fundraising Events Team, you will contribute to the successful execution of our flagship Trailwalker event.  Assisting the Supporter Engagement Coordinator, you will provide support & inspiration for event participants to optimise their fundraising and engagement with Oxfam.
This is a part-time internship (16 hours per week), running from December 2018 - May 2019, and will involve some travel to Whakatane the weekend of the event.
The opportunity:
- Gain hands-on knowledge of event fundraising on a mass scale.
- Build on your communication and engagement skills.
- Experience the passion and work that goes into an international development NGO.
We offer flexibility of hours, great work culture and an amazing global Oxfam network. Join us!
