Organisation name: Students Organising for Sustainability - UK
Placement opportunity: Open to expressions of interest
Location: Remote working
Type of placement:
Work with SOS-UK on either a number of our projects or something specific. We can work with you to create a role that will support your needs and interests as well as helping us progress sustainability in the tertiary education sector. Find out more about our work on our web pages
before getting in touch with us to suggest a project or focus for a placement with us.
What I am looking for:
Over summer 2019, in response to the climate emergency and ecological crisis, student officers and staff at NUS founded Students Organising for Sustainability UK (SOS-UK) so we can go further and faster with NUS’ transformational sustainability work.
During a placement, a student is responsible for one main project. Students work alongside and liaise with other members of the team, whilst receiving regular support and supervision as you scope, research, plan and undertake a specific piece of work. To be eligible to take part, students must be able to receive course credit or recognition for their contributions from their place of study. SOS-UK is a Living Wage employer and does not support unpaid internships/non-credit bearing placements or work experience.
- We are an education charity focusing on sustainability (rather than a sustainability charity working on education)
- We work on sustainability across all forms of education (most work in either pre16 or post-16 education)
- We engage everyday students in sustainability, not just established campaigners, supporting students wherever they are on their sustainability journey and creating a pathway for young people to go on and engage with other organisations
