"The Big Give" Internship - Fixed term contract  (June - Sept)

About the role:

The Big Give Project encourages students living in private rented housing and halls of residence to recycle and donate items that would otherwise usually end up in landfill as they finish at the end of the academic year and leave their accommodation.  A system of collections in key locations in Winton, on the Lansdowne and Talbot Campus and in halls of residence will operate during the move out period from the end of May 2022 through to the second weekend of September 2022.  Donated items will be sorted and given to a variety local charities.

The Big Give campaign reduces the negative environmental impact from student end of year clear outs, as well as improves community relations as students donate and recycle more, leave less rubbish and dispose of it in a more responsible way
