Why we need you

The National Events team is going through a fast-paced and exciting period of growth. We are rapidly expanding our product portfolio, ensuring we remain the country’s foremost charity events team by delivering quality, large scale and fast following events. As the Events portfolio has developed, so has the requirements of the Partnerships team. We’re now supporting the acquisition, management and development of partnerships across Race for Life, Shine, Tough 10 and third-party Sports events.

We are looking for an intern to support with the day-to-day management of our relationship with Tesco, with a particular focus on various staff and volunteer fundraising opportunities, such as the Tesco Turns Pink national fundraising weekend in April.
