As part of ongoing commitment to the support and development of Travellers, TM seeks to increase the professional skills and competences of individual Travellers towards securing paid professional employment and/ or improved educational attainment through the provision of fully supported internships, based at the charity’s workplace.
Internships are a rolling programme within TM. Details of intern opportunities and how to apply are posted on the charity’s website and Facebook facility, from time to time. Interns provide a valued, important and respected service for TM. TM aims to ensure that interns work is diverse and fulfilling.
Who Can Apply?
Travellers aged over 18 (or otherwise discussed with the Management Committee), who are literate and who wish to develop experience and skills toward professional employment in the third sector and elsewhere or are seeking development toward further educational attainment are encouraged to apply. Interns may be undergraduates, graduates, students in or seeking third level education. Adult Travellers seeking to develop or return to a professional career may also apply.
Interns can undertake a single or mixed role within the charity e.g., finance and administration; project or group development; social media; policy and representation. Routine administration is expected of all TM personnel.
