The Marine Futures Internship Programme offers a unique opportunity to candidates who are passionate and enthusiastic about the marine environment. The Marine Futures Interns will gain skills, knowledge and experience across a variety of sectors in this exciting field to help direct and shape their future career ambitions.
This internship programme is funded by The Crown Estate and project managed by the North West Wildlife Trusts.

Each partner organisation provides opportunities for the intern to develop skills in specialist areas including, marine conservation advice, sustainable fisheries, renewable energy development, marine policy, and community engagement.
The successful intern will follow a varied schedule that will allow them to gain a range of skills and experiences including: working with a variety of teams across different sectors; writing for different audiences; working with local communities to raise awareness about environmental issues; undertaking surveys; the use of social media in the workplace; delivering media interviews and presentations; and participating in online meetings, training and webinars.
The two interns will also get the chance to undertake a joint research project, looking into a practical topic of relevance to all partner organisations. This will involve working with different teams across the partner organisations.
What we are looking for: An intern who can build on their existing skills and knowledge to make the most of this unique experience. Applicants should have a good understanding of current marine issues and some experience of working or volunteering within the marine sector. Most importantly, we are looking for candidates who are passionate and enthusiastic about the marine environment and have a willingness to learn. We are looking for someone who is organised, self-motivated, and able to work well within a team both remotely and in person.
