A great internship opportunity to be part of Greenpeace’s Energydesk digital journalism project writing original stories on energy and climate change issues from across the globe.
The role will involve the full spectrum of key digital skills from monitoring and engaging in social media to producing stories rich in interactive data and maps.
We need someone who can dig deep into global and UK energy and climate issues but is also comfortable monitoring and responding quickly to breaking news, working efficiently and accurately.
You’ll be a budding energy reporter, who can originate and develop original research or data-led stories on energy and climate change, whilst maintaining journalistic standards. You will assist in promoting stories on social media.

It is our aim to provide a valuable learning experience for our interns. The appointed intern will receive training in research and writing from an experienced journalist along with an opportunity to receive and provide feedback both during and after the placement.
Applicants should be able to demonstrate their support for, and belief in, the aims of Greenpeace and be able to commit to the full period of the internship.
