Giving Green is looking for a research & communications intern!

Interns will work closely with our team on our public guide to climate giving. You'll dive deep into climate policy & tech, gain experience with applied research, and produce and amplify a real-world product. 

Who is Giving Green? We research and publicize the best giving opportunities in climate—that is, organizations doing impactful work with a strong need for additional funding—to empower everyone to move money towards high-impact solutions. Launched just three years ago, Giving Green has moved millions of dollars and landed press mentions in Vox, the Atlantic, Time, and more.

Who are we looking for? Your responsibilities may include, depending on your background and interests:​

  • Deep-dive into a certain climate solution and conduct literature reviews

  • Assess the market and funding landscape for a climate solution to help us determine the impact of future donations

  • Support the writing and editing of our research reports and communications content

  • Ideate on and implement ways to grow our audience, from finding reporters who might value our work to designing creative social media content

  • Support Giving Green's operations by helping us think through systems and processes for a growing nonprofit (only if you're interested in ops - we promise this isn't code for "we'll make you do admin work"!)

Required qualifications:

  • Excellent written communication skills in English

  • Some experience with desk research: literature review, landscape analysis or market research, or similar

  • Enthusiasm for working on a small, startup-like team

  • Passion for taking action on climate change and alignment with Giving Green's values


Desired qualifications (note that strong candidates do not need to meet all of these qualifications):

  • Familiar with the climate space, especially policy and policy advocacy (e.g., building codes, restricting fossil fuel production) and maturing climate technologies (e.g. advanced geothermal energy, alternative proteins, nuclear power)

  • Familiar with principles of effective altruism, especially as they apply to research and evaluation

  • Experience with traditional or digital communications work

  • Ability to work independently and co-develop your own work timelines and products

To apply, fill out this short form!

Nuts and bolts:

  • Applications received by May 21 will be prioritized. Only short-listed candidates will be contacted.

  • The internship will be compensated (this could include being funded by Giving Green, being funded by your university or another entity, or receiving course credit).

  • We are intending to hire an intern for summer and/or fall 2023, but if you'd like you can also use this application to register interest in a 2024 internship and we will keep your resume on file.

  • We are a fully remote team. Interns must have legal authorization to work in the country in which they will be based.
