Internship Conditions

Duration: Internships can last4 weeks (minimum time offered as an exception) to one year on a full time basis, or on a 1-2 days a week basis for usually up to 6 months. Interns can return for additional internships subject to the approval of the Internship Coordinator.

Remuneration: We regret that Rights and Humanity cannot offer any remuneration for internships and cannot contribute to travel costs or living expenses. Interns are responsible for making their own travel arrangements to and fromIpswich or Suffolk and for finding accommodation, although we will attempt to assist in this regard. Any costs incurred while travelling during Rights and Humanity business (eg attending a conference or workshop etc for Rights and Humanity) can be covered.

Visas: Interns coming from outside of the European Union may be required to obtain a visa for entry into the United Kingdom to pursue the internship. The intern is responsible for obtaining the visa and for any costs involved in this process. Applicants for visas are usually required to demonstrate that they have sufficient funds to support themselves during their stay in the UK. Rights and Humanity will provide some guidance on how to obtain a visa and will provide a letter of support to your visa application.

Insurance: Rights and Humanity accepts no responsibility for costs arising from accidents and/or illness incurred during an internship. Interns must have their own health insurance. In case of illness or other circumstances which might prevent the completion of the internship, interns will promptly inform the Internship Coordinator and the President.

Annual leave: Interns are entitled to the normal days leave for official holidays during the assignment. Depending on the length of the proposed internship, additional vacation days may be negotiated. All leave must be approved in advance by the Internship Coordinator.
Notice: Either party may terminate the internship contract before the expiration date, given one week's notice in writing.
