|The World Cetacean Alliance is the world’s largest Partnership working to protect whales, dolphins and porpoises (cetaceans). Through cooperation, the Partners of the World Cetacean Alliance aim to conserve and protect cetaceans and their habitats in the world’s oceans, seas and rivers, to ensure their continued health and survival.
The WCA is committed to preventing all cetaceans from being held in captivity except for rehabilitation and release purposes. We are also developing and implementing new concepts for responsible whale and dolphin watching with the potential to inspire and educate millions of people. Finally, we aim to expand the global community of people who care for cetaceans, have a desire to learn about them, and respect them.
We believe that local communities hold the key to protecting cetaceans and their habitats, supported by grass-roots organisations, knowledgeable individuals, and ecotourism experts (our Partners).
The World Cetacean Alliance connects its Partners both nationally and internationally. This local-to-global approach enables the Partnership to deliver coordinated and practical strategies on the ground whilst representing the views of its Partners on the international stage. Our approach will deliver a sustainable future for the world’s cetaceans, their habitats, and the global community of people reliant upon the sea.
Led by Honorary President Jean-Michel Cousteau, the World Cetacean Alliance launched on 8th June 2013, World Oceans Day. With BirdLife International – the world’s largest partnership of conservation organisations – providing advice in order to facilitate the development of the World Cetacean Alliance, the WCA Partnership has developed rapidly and is increasingly effective on a range of issues affecting cetaceans and their habitats.

|We make environmental matters matter, creating fun campaigns that people latch onto and which go on to have a life of their own. We take a fresh approach to communicating environmental issues, focusing on people’s passions such as fashion, food, homes and neighbourhoods.
Our approach is positive. We believe sustainability can and should be fun, enjoyable and sociable. We constantly experiment, learn and evolve. We share results and open source our approach so others can amplify impact. We provide the spark for people to do things differently.
Collaboration is central to our approach. We listen and co-design. We are inclusive working at all levels, from grass roots to the board room. We are purposeful with clear charitable objectives delivering tangible impact.
We are a small experienced team of doers. We’re inquisitive, curious and proactive. We approach our work intelligently and even-handedly, based on facts and scientific evidence.
About the opportunity:
We’re seeking an intern to join our small team. The internship will offer a wide range of experience, working in a start-up culture. The role will provide direct administrative support to a range of on-the-ground initiatives including a food waste campaign at Halloween, a large-scale sustainable fashion initiative and piloting a new approach to tackling litter.
We’re seeking a highly enthusiastic person who has a genuine interest in sustainability and who wants to help bring the issue into the mainstream through innovative and impactful community-based activities.
We’re looking for somebody who can work effectively in a dynamic small team, who thrives on challenges, who has an active interest in current affairs and who is able to work confidently under their own initiative. As the role will largely involve providing administrative support, it is essential that you are organised, have a keen eye for detail and enjoy looking at spreadsheets every now and then over a cup of tea!

|Hi, we’re 10:10 – we bring people together to do bold, beautiful things that help tackle climate change.
As you a social media whizz, with a way with words and an eye for a good pic? Got a view on whether climate NGOs should be embracing Facebook Live? Do you love the challenge of communicating big issues to large, diverse audiences? Do you have a commitment to listening to supporters, not just talking to them? Do you want to tackle climate change head on? You could be just who we’re looking for…
We’re looking for a supporter engagement lead to join our growing communications team and act as the chief conduit between 10:10 and our supporters. You’d report to the head of communications and work alongside other comms team members as well as fundraisers and campaigning staff.
About the opportunity
You’ll be one of the key copywriters in the team, composing emails as well as posting to social media. Supported by other design and copywriting experts in the team, you’ll help produce the pictures, puns, and sparkle that catches the eye of our supporters, intrigues new audiences, and motivates them all to take action on climate change.
You’d also take a lead when it comes to dreaming up ways to engage new audiences on social media spaces like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or Instagram. We’d want you to develop our following there and also have an eye squarely on the horizon of new trends, and a sense of platforms we’re not currently utilising (e.g. we’re not on Snapchat, should we be?). You’ll help build our communications schedule, ensuring our supporters always have something interesting to engage with.
