This week PRI said goodbye to our fantastic Fundraising Research Intern Neylissa. We sat down with Neylissa to ask her a few questions about her experience…
Favourite thing about being an intern at PRI?
My favourite thing about being an intern at PRI has been the interesting work that is done here. If you have an interest in penal reform or human rights in general, you will find being an intern here very exciting.
Most valuable thing you have learnt?
The most valuable thing I have acquired from this experience is a career. Before this opportunity, I had just graduated with a degree in International Relations and had no idea what I was going to do with it. As a fundraising intern, I have learnt how to use my knowledge and skills and found a career I find genuinely interesting.
I have decided to continue my career in fundraising and will be working at Centrepoint as a Corporate Development Assistant.
Why should you apply to be a fundraising intern at PRI?
You should apply to be a fundraising intern because it is such a varied role. In doing this role, you are networking, conducting research, writing reports, updating databases and attending events. You will also feel as though you are making a difference since every funding opportunity you find goes towards promoting fair and effective criminal justice.
Do you have what it takes to fill her shoes?
We are now recruiting for our Research Fundraising internship position. For more information about the role, the person specification and how to apply visit our jobs page.
