A message received today from Feedback, an environmental organisation campaigning to transform the food system.

I’m reaching out to inform you of a series of 15-week-long, 4 days per week, paid internships (£10.75 per hour) for young people (aged 18-24) that we are running with Enfield-based Forty Hall Farm. We also have an additional internship placement in Barnet at GROW in Totteridge Academy (more information below).

We would very much appreciate it if you would be willing to share these opportunities with any young people in your networks who you think may be interested. No experience is required, and we would like to actively promote these opportunities to people who may experience barriers getting into the environment or food sectors. The upcoming application deadlines are Sunday 28th June and Sunday 12th July (you can find more information about the roles through the jobs section on our website:
