This is an exciting and busy time to be joining UK Youth as we prepare to launch our new strategy and transform the way we work to ensure all young people are equipped to thrive and empowered to contribute at every stage of their lives. As a result, we are recruiting for a number of new roles designed to enable the organisation to grow, improve our ways of working and enable us to deliver our ambitious 2025 strategic plan.
As the Art for Youth London Intern, you will be responsible for providing co-ordination and administrative support to the Fundraising Events Manager and Events Co-ordinator, to help deliver a successful fundraising event and assist with the stewardship of the artists, committee and event attendees.
Providing strong administrative support, you will assist in the tasks leading up to and at the event as well as communicating with the different stakeholders and suppliers and help in the smooth running of the event.
Who we are
UK Youth is a leading charity that exists to ensure all young people are equipped to thrive and empowered to contribute at every stage of their lives. We have influence as a sector-supporting infrastructure body, a direct delivery partner and a campaigner for social change. As outlined in our 2025 #unlockingyouthwork strategy, we believe youth work is a catalyst for change that young people need now more than ever. We play a unique role in addressing; the lack of investment into the youth sector, the lack of cross-sector understanding of how youth work makes a difference and the limited opportunities to embed effective solutions.
We are building a movement of change; galvanising likeminded individuals, organisations, government, and businesses from all sectors, to work together and deliver system change for all young people. Together we will create a society that understands, champions, and delivers effective youth work for all.
Why work at UK Youth?
We are a value-based, passionate and committed organisation offering a friendly working environment with lots of opportunities for professional development and socialising (even for those working remotely!) from lunch and learn sessions, staff quizzes, to virtual coffee meet ups
