Protimos - Internship

  • Location: London

We are looking to recruit hard working, enthusiastic interns to join our London team.

Protimos is a small, charitable organisation that challenges the unjust exploitation of communities in Sub-Saharan Africa by training young local lawyers to support communities in asserting their legal rights. 

We believe that the Rule of Law is one of the most effective tools available to alleviate poverty and fight injustice. The power of legal precedent means that a ruling can have effects far beyond the community that it directly impacts. Successful implementation of ‘The Rule of Law’ depends on effective and well trained lawyers, competent and wise judges and strong legal frameworks. 

We are currently looking for two interns to support with trust and foundation applications by providing research, communications and administrative support. Interns will also assist research into funding opportunities and carry out occasional administrative tasks.

This role would particularly suit recent graduates or post-graduates with an interest in the law or development sectors, who are looking for an internship with a lot of responsibility and impact. This opportunity would suit someone with proven communications and research abilities. You will need strong writing and editing skills, meticulous attention to detail and excellent IT skills. Experience of working with charities or in a legal capacity would be an advantage. Above all, you should have a good understanding of, and be passionate about, legal empowerment and human rights.
