Do you have a passion for communicating about conservation?
Then apply for the Sponsored Marketing Internship for Conservation
This opportunity is offered to a young conservationist or recent graduate with a strong interest in wildlife conservation to acquire professional marketing skills, through work experience and study, to further their career in conservation communications.
The internship is on a VOLUNTEER basis. You will work for a wildlife NGO and study for a marketing qualification.
As a marketing intern, you will work on communications projects with a focus on saving endangered species and their habitats. These projects are coordinated by Biodiversity Business, a social enterprise dedicated to creating shared value for biodiversity and business. You will be involved in developing digital marketing marketing communications such as preparing marketing campaigns, managing social media, collecting and analyzing of marketing data.
Since most of the conservation projects are based in Malaysia, you will be based there for at least 6 months to gain valuable field experience. (Accommodation and board provided, but travel for intern’s own account).

The internship will start from January, and you will have to commit ONE YEAR to complete all three modules of the CIM qualification by December. All your study with the college is via Distance Learning.
You can expect to work about 20 hours a week for the first 3 months and the rest will be study time. After taking your exam for the MARKETING module, you can travel to Malaysia to start your full-time work in the field. During this time, you will work and study for the remaining two modules: INTEGRATED COMMUNICATIONS and DIGITAL MARKETING. Your stay in Malaysia will include trips to project sites in the rainforest and a marine park on the East coast. This will take at least 6 months, but you can stay a maximum of 9 months and return home by the end of the year.
