Research & Communication Volunteer Intern


THIRST is currently preparing to conduct a three-year community-based, tea sector-wide Human Rights Impact Assessment (HRIA) in partnership with other expert civil society organisations in order to provide a strong evidence base for future advocacy and action by civil society, companies and governments to reduce the risk of human rights breaches and provide remedy where such breaches have occurred.

In the meantime, THIRST needs to maintain its publication of monthly news updates on issues affecting tea workers and farmers, its programme of TEA talks, and keeping its Knowledge Hub updated with key reports on these issues around the world.

THIRST is now seeking a volunteer intern for approximately two days a week to support both the HRIA and its regular work.

This will be a valuable opportunity for a graduate or equivalent – or someone seeking to move into the field of ethical trade/business and human rights to gain in-depth knowledge and experience in this area in relation to the tea industry.

The role can be carried out remotely so we are not specifying a location – as long as there is good enough internet connectivity to maintain communication with the CEO and carry out the duties required.

To apply, please send your CV and a covering letter explaining why you are interested in the role and explaining how you meet the criteria to Sabita Banerji by close of business on Friday 21st of May 2021, at
