What we are looking for in an intern
Interns should be quick to learn, creative and keen to share their ideas. You will work as part of a team but will be required to self-lead on certain aspects of work. You will need to be responsible and thorough in your approach to tasks. We believe in being brave enough to ask the stupid question, they show an inquisitive mind, and we do not fear making mistakes, they are part of the learning process. Interns should enter fully into Dignity team life, including morning prayers, and evening prayer meetings. We ask all team members to act as ambassadors for Dignity in their churches, workplaces and other relationships.

A Genuine Occupational Requirement (GOR) will apply under the Equality Act 2010. As an intern at Dignity you will be required to meet the spiritual needs of Charity members, service users or visitors.
