If you are a proactive individual, you will gain invaluable experience working at this charity. I was a legal intern and did just that, deal with legal cases. I had a lot of clients wanting information on matters relating to housing, benefits, immigration, and employment, which are the fields I would like to pursue my career in once I am qualified. The staff and volunteers are friendly, making the time go fast. I love what the charity does and their ethos. I have first handedly seen the work they are doing through women’s classes, legal clinic, ESOL classes, tutoring for kids and so on. I really hope this charity gains recognition for the work it does so it can succeed and branch out to those who need assistance.
Friendly environment, great for CV, learn a lot
Long commute, no travel/lunch money provided so gets costly
