Programmes Research Intern – Beneficiary Feedback Mechanisms 

Expenses only - Location and hours flexible
Are you a new graduate, passionate about international development and global health?  Do you have an interest in beneficiary feedback mechanisms?  Are you interested in gaining experience of working in an INGO? 

This is an exciting volunteer opportunity for a graduate with a passion for development to join the Programmes team. You will have a degree in international development, global health or another relevant discipline, be self-motivated with the capacity to work on your own initiative and have experience of undertaking a literature review.  

You will benchmark the types and effectiveness of beneficiary feedback mechanisms currently used within our supported programmes, research how other INGOs have developed effective beneficiary feedback mechanisms and identify key learning that could be incorporated into our programmes. As well as your research providing important learning to influence our programmes, this role will also give you an insight into how an INGO works and enable you to learn from an experienced team.  The role can be undertaken flexibly, either two months full time, or longer on a part time basis. It can either be based at our Peterborough Office or be based from home with regular visits to the office. Expenses will be paid.
