Giving What We Can loves volunteers and interns! We started as a volunteer-run organisation, and interns and chapter volunteers make a signficant contribution to our operations every year.

We generally have a number of interns working either remotely, or with us in our offices in Oxford, and we run a regular internship program each summer.

Please be aware that internship positions are very competitive, and there are a limited number of places available. However, if you think you're a good fit, then please get in touch!

Summer Internship 2016

Flexible dates between June-August

We are now taking applications for our Summer Internship. You can read more about the Summer Internship and apply to participate here.

Chapter volunteers

We think chapters are a really important way of reaching out to new people. One way you can help more people find out about Giving What We Can is to support your local chapter, or start a new one if there isn't one.

See our chapters page for details of your local chapter, or for information about how to start a new chapter in your area.

Graduate volunteer positions


We are recruiting for people to volunteer with us full-time in Oxford on an expenses-only basis. We run a Graduate Volunteer Scheme for people who want to stay with us for around eight to ten months, and also offer short-term internships, which generally last at least three months.

The scheme has proved very popular with our current interns, with many repeatedly extending their time with us. We provide a stimulating and dedicated atmosphere in the office and a lively and welcoming community outside office hours. If you would like to discuss what it’s like to work here, we’d be happy to put you in touch with a current volunteer.

We are sometimes able to provide accommodation in a house with other volunteers and staff, and expenses of up to £10 a day based on financial need. However it may improve your chances of being offered an internship if you can secure your own funding to cover expenses, for example through scholarships and fundraising.

Remote working

We are also always happy to receive applications from people who wish to volunteer remotely. Though we don’t have a formal scheme in place, please get in touch with us if you are interested.
