Strategy Intern - Training Contract

Do you want to make real-world change? Are you inspired by organisations like Greenpeace, Cancer Research UK and Amnesty International? Don’t miss this new and exciting opportunity…

Forward Action is a digital mobilisation agency for progressive causes. They help their partner organisations reach new supporters, then mobilise them to become activists and donors. They have been in the engine room of some of the most successful election and charity digital campaigns of the last few years, helping their partners add millions of new supporters to their email lists, raise more money online (from more donors) and create campaigns that have led to real-world change.

Forward Action is now recruiting for their exciting Strategy Internship. As a Strategy Intern, you will learn the fundamental skills needed to help progressive organisations drive real-world change using digital mobilisation. 

This is initially a six-month training contract, with the freedom to work both their London office and remotely anywhere in the UK (although during the pandemic, almost all of their team are working at home). You can work either four or five days per week.

This role will be a training contract with a pro-rata salary of £20,938 in London or £18,979 outside of London. Because under a training contract you don’t have to pay income tax or national insurance contributions, this means your take-home pay will be equivalent to a salary of £25,261 in London or £22,554 outside of London, in a non-training role.

What you will learn

The core focus of your learning in this role will be

  • The principles of mobilisation, understanding what drives people to take action
  • How to collect data about the performance of email campaigns, Facebook ads and web pages
  • How to create and update spreadsheets to clearly report campaign performance data
  • Analysing and understanding data, and how to be data-driven in decision making
  • How to set up and manage a Facebook ads campaign
  • How to build mass-mailer emails

You’ll also receive training on

  • How to plan a fair A/B experiment
  • How to write good, action-focused copy
  • The principles behind good user experience that make action pages convert
  • How an agency’s new business funnel works, and how to structure a proposal

And you’ll get the experience of

  • Working with a variety of inspiring progressive organisations
  • Joining strategy and new business meetings with partner organisations
  • Brainstorming ideas for campaign framings

Knowledge, Skills, Experience
