Come and work for Left Foot Forward

Left Foot Forward is advertising for a paid internship, at the London Living Wage of £7.85 per hour; please email [email protected] by January 21st.

Thanks to the generosity of Left Foot Forward supporters, we are now able to begin employing an intern at London Living Wage rates of £7.85 per hour to help continue our work in showcasing the evidence for progressive politics and combatting the misinformation peddled by politicians and the media.

This is an exciting position which would involve researching articles, editing copy, maintaining the website and other administrative duties. Candidates must have a commitment to centre-left progressive values, good writing and sub-editing skills, good web skills and an awareness of current affairs and policy developments.

Ideally we are also looking for somebody who has knowledge of HTML; picture editing; data analysis and presentation; journalistic experience; and a knowledge of progressive organisations.

The role will be five days a week between the hours of 9:30am – 5:30pm, working in our offices in Westminster, with occasional evening and weekend event reporting. As a web-based company, we are also flexible concerning out-of-office working.

We will offer the successful candidate a four-month contract, to be extended a further two months on mutual agreement. Please submit your CV with covering letter, both as attachments, to [email protected]. Unfortunately we will not be able to contact all applicants who we do not call for interview.
