MRF is a dynamic organisation, with an open-minded professional culture. Occasionally we accept internship applications, with a preference for longer term stays which benefit both the intern and MRF. Being a small agency and with projects spread across a large geographical area, a lot of the work done at home base is administrative and data processing, with occasional, intense and exhilarating field trips in between.
MRF does not accept 1-4 week internship applications. Only applications of two months or greater will be considered.
MRF does not provide any form of remuneration for intern positions. An internship at MRF is a volunteer activity.
If you are interested in a volunteer intern post at MRF, please send a cover letter indicating your background, the skills you believe you bring to MRF and how these will fit in with ongoing MRF projects, dates you are interested in being a intern along with alternative dates should your first preference not be available. Also please send a copy of your CV – not a one-page Resume that will not be informative, but rather something by which we may judge your skills and character prior to making a decision. We are particularly keen on finding out how you feel you could contribute to MRF’s goals and objectives, and how an internship would be of benefit to you.
Please note that intern posts at MRF are highly competitive and few in number, and that request for and submission of these documents does not constitute any form of preliminary acceptance.
You will be advised in due course whether you and MRF would both benefit from an internship opportunity.
Please read the Frequently Asked Questions before applying for an internship so that you understand the procedure, know what to expect, and improve your chances of being accepted by demonstrating you can follow instructions.
