We are looking for an intern to work with us for 3 months.
Working with our five-person team will give you exposure to high-level strategy and decisions, with opportunities to attend meetings and gain an understanding of different areas of Blueprint’s work.
A Blueprint for Better Business is an independent charity, which helps businesses be a force for good, by being inspired and guided by a purpose that serves society.
Our work challenges core assumptions about the purpose of business and what motivates people and helps businesses see that they can operate in a way that benefits both business and society. Much of our work is with senior leadership teams in large corporates, but we also work with investors, NGOs, academics, coaches and consultants, the media and others. Through ongoing dialogue and our workshops and events, we support business leaders to overcome the challenges and unlock the opportunities of staying true to a purpose that serves society.

- Helping to prepare presentations for public speeches given by the team
- One-off tasks to assist other team members with their work, for example in fundraising, or communications
We want you to learn and develop during your time with us, and so if there are particular projects and work streams that you would like to learn more about, we will do our best to accommodate this where possible.
The role is based in central London.
