Job title: Tobacco Intern
Company: Corporate Accountability
Job description: Corporate Accountability stops transnational corporations from devastating democracy, trampling human rights, and destroying our planet. We are building a world rooted in justice where corporations answer to people, not the other way around — a world where every person has access to clean water, healthy food, a safe place to live, and the opportunity to reach their full human potential.
We are deeply committed to prioritizing the leadership of those who bear the brunt of corporate abuse: women, people of color, low-income people, people in the Global South, and LGBTQ folks around the world, therefore potential candidates holding these identities are strongly encouraged to apply for our internships program.
Our internships are a unique opportunity for you to gain valuable corporate campaigning and nonprofit experience, cultivate your interests in social justice, strengthen your understanding of a fast-paced campaign organization, and gain critical skills and experience. As the tobacco intern, you will work alongside our dynamic, passionate tobacco campaign team, gaining valuable domestic and international legal and policy research and advocacy experience with a non-profit that directly challenges corporate abuse globally. Interns will come away from the experience ready to take action and apply these skills to the social change issues they want to address in their local communities, schools and beyond.
As the tobacco intern you will support our organizers by taking on significant monitoring and research, engaging allies around the globe and supporting the preparation and activities for international meetings. Additionally you will conduct work on projects and will conduct research analysis needed to implement and develop the strategic direction of our campaign to challenge Big Tobacco.
