Hartwyn Organisational-Intern application form
Job Description : https://bit.ly/2FeLKfj

Thank you for expressing an interest in becoming an organisational intern with Hartwyn.

We are offering a unique opportunity to be part of our growing business. Among other things, we will be developing our intern program, applying for grants, becoming a not for profit, creating online content and a whole lot more. The time you spend with us will be immersive, intense and challenging, and we hope also very rewarding.

Hartwyn creates a diverse team for each build so we are looking for people of all backgrounds and abilities. There are no prerequisites for inclusion; you don’t need any building experience. We will be living closely together in tents on or close to site, so at least a little experience with camping will definitely be useful. Disabilities may not exclude you, but we do need to know so that we can make sure that everyone’s experience is as complete as possible.

We need to know a few things about you so that we can piece our teams together. Places are limited so if you are unsuccessful this time we will keep your information on file for subsequent builds. Due to the volume of applicants we can not reply to everyone; we will only contact you if you are moving to the interview stage.

In the interests of encouraging and maintaining diversity, if you wish to ask someone to help fill out this form please do so. If you have an impairment or barrier that prevents you from completing this form conventionally, please feel free to apply via an audio or video format. If you do this, please make sure to follow the questions below.

We do an annual call for Intern applications at the beginning of the year for the current year's build season (which generally runs from March through to October). We may have several builds of varying complexities, durations and locations running at any one time. We understand that your availability may be limited, if so please indicate below your preferred window. In all cases we will give Interns at least two months notice before a build is due to start.

We receive many more applications than we can fulfil, so if you would like your details to be kept on file for the next build season, please tick the box below.


1. Submit application form and essay.
2. Applications reviewed by Hartwyn and shortlist developed. (We try to build complementary teams that will both service the build and also give all team members the opportunity to learn and grow alongside each other. The shortlist is based on that process)
3. Shortlisted applicants contacted for an interview - either in person or via video conference.
4. Final team selections made and arrangements sent out.

Intern availability.
All interns will be required to provide their own basic tool kit and workwear, including but not limited to:

Steel toe work boots
Tape measure
Your own personal laptop would be useful but not essential

These items should be seen as an investment in your learning experience. Many of these tools can be borrowed or found second hand. A list is available upon request detailing our personal favourites or recommendations. Bursaries are available to help with these costs for those with low or no income. Please indicate below if you would like to apply for one.

All other tools and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) will be supplied by Hartwyn.
