From time to time, the Green Party will facilitate internships in our Head Office, or in Leinster House.
The Green Party follows three principles when it comes to interns:
- Interns should be compensated for their work. This means that when we take on an intern, they either must be benefiting in terms of gaining an academic credit for their time here, or they go onto our payroll as a temporary employee.
- Interns should gain a rounded experience of the work of the Green Party, its staff and its representatives. Intern work can sometimes involve more basic office tasks, but it shouldn’t always be this way. We will try to provide interns with a varied experience – including time in Leinster House, time with Councillors or time with Members/Volunteers.
- When and internship is finished, interns should be able to point to something to say ‘I did that’ or ‘I contributed to this’. We prefer interns to have something meaningful to put on their CV.
