GREEN PARTY INTERN NEEDED

To work as a volunteer with Rupert Read (Lead Green MEP Candidate) and Simon Sedgwick-Jell (Campaign Manager) between now and June ‘09.

Minimum Hours: Half a day per week or equivalent.

Minimum Period: One month.

The position would ideally be taken by someone living in or near Eastern Region, but we will also consider those living elsewhere in England.

Job involves: Research and co-ordinating surveys etc in order to provide stronger real news than we usually have (not just opinion). Most of your quality time will be spent creating opportunities for the extra coverage that we need if we are to win a seat in the 2009 Euro Elections.

If you think that you would like to take on this task then please get in touch (contact details below). Now that the Green Party has officially launched its European election campaign, your help could significantly extend Rupert Read’s ‘reach’ and that of the Green Euro-campaign, increasing the chances of us breaking through in Eastern Region, one of our two national target Regions. You would have the opportunity to gain valuable experience working closely with high-profile politicians, liaising with the media and being involved in a region-wide election campaign – great for the cv!

Contact: rupertread@fastmail.co.uk or call Simon Sedgwick-Jell on 01223 474557 or 07961 695882.

Are you paying the intern? the unions are agaisnt exploiting people this way and it excludes women with children, disabled people and poor people for example so is it ethical or sustainable?

We'll pay expenses. Beyond that, no.
It is ENTIRELY normal for this to happen in the political world: all Parties do it. The intern gains experience and contacts and something for their cv -- and maybe, at least in our case, they actually help contribute to ensuring that they actually HAVE a future which is ethical and sustainable.
Btw, I don't see how you can work out that this excludes women with children or the disabled, at all!!
