Sustainability and Education Summer Intern at Green & Away

Where: West Midlands

Deadline: March 31, 2017

Type: Internship

View more

Introduction

Green & Away is looking for a number of passionate and hardworking individuals to fulfil the summer internship programme across 5 departments: catering management; organiser’s office; technical and maintenance; hospitality and housekeeping and sustainability and education. Interns will be responsible for the daily operation of their departments, including management of a team of volunteers, with continual guidance from a dedicated mentor.

A holistic training programme will be provided within the first week, along with continual mentoring from an experienced member of the trustee board. You will have the opportunity to measure your progress through regular check-ins with the Interns Manager.

Applicants for the internship programme should work well as part of a team as well as independently, have a passion for sustainability, charity work, ecotourism, outdoor living and enjoy taking on new challenges and responsibility.

Green & Away is an entirely volunteer-run organisation. All interns are required to stay on site throughout the season and are provided with full board, including accommodation if required (although we strongly encourage individuals to bring their own tent and sleeping bag). There will also be opportunities for off-site activities, for example canoeing or visiting fellow eco-businesses, during quieter periods of the season.

Description of role

Green & Away is seeking an intern to undertake tasks in a new role dedicated to sustainability strategy and education management during the season. This role will involve research, assessment and presentation of Green & Away’s sustainable practices, such as analysing our food procurement and measuring our carbon footprint. You will also be responsible for arranging workshops and talks for volunteers and guests through a varied education programme, assisted by the Education Manager.

You will be laying the groundwork for Green & Away to undertake new projects and improve on its practices as an ethical organisation and environmental charity, coming up with new ideas and written policies.

This placement will offer you experience in research, report preparation and project management and is best suited to an organised, independent worker with a passion for sustainable development or outdoor education.

Duration and travel

All internships will start on 12 June 2017 and end around mid August. All applicants need to be resident for the whole duration of the summer season. We allow all volunteers numerous days off (about twice a week).

Green & Away is located 3 miles from Worcester which has a main line rail station with buses which come to a few minutes walk of our site. Please see our website for travel information

Accommodation and facilities

Green & Away takes place mainly outdoors and under canvas. Ideally you will need your own tent, however we may be able to arrange one for you if you are unable to bring one. Full board is provided (vegetarian, mostly organic and mostly local). The site has hot showers, clothes washing facilities and composting toilets.

A licensed bar, comfortable sitting areas and arts and crafts facilities come later, as and when we have built them. There are also Wi-Fi, phone and laptop charging facilities. Please note you will first be arriving to an empty field, so please be prepared for this.

Although G&A is set up on the outskirts of a small village near Worcester, there are very few facilities outside the field. There is a café/restaurant within a few minutes walk but the nearest shop and post office is 2 miles away.

Costs

Green & Away does not pay any of its volunteers, trustees or interns. We provide 3 meals a day (including dessert with the evening meal, teas and coffees etc.) to everyone volunteering on site. Your only cost throughout the internship will be your travel or any drinks and snacks you choose from the bar.

PAS - Dataset Migration Project Placement at National Railway Museum

Where: North Yorkshire, UK

Deadline: March 31, 2017

Type: Part-time

View more


Job Description

To investigate the functionality and suitability of Omeka.net as a host platform for the migration of data created by volunteers from a subject specific card catalogue. This project originated in 2010 when the NRM accepted the vast subject card catalogue of the late railway historian, Alan Jackson, on the proviso that it was made available to researchers digitally. Funding to digitize the cards was granted by the Railway & Canal Historical Society and the museum set up a volunteer project to transcribe these cards onto an Excel spreadsheets. Over 100 volunteers from across the UK (and world) set to work from home and completed the task of transcribing 30,000 cards 6 years later, in 2016. Now, with over 350,000 subject entries, we are at the stage of wanting to find a suitable online home for the volunteers’ work that will enable researchers to discover the useful information that was locked in the cards. For background on the project, see: http://blog.nrm.org.uk/railway-historians-research-legacy-begins-new-life/ http://blog.nrm.org.uk/the-alan-jackson-archive/ Project tasks: initial scoping (30 hours) Work through the features of Omeka.net to see how they can best be used to represent the data. Specifically, what fields to use and what feature plugins and presentation apps might be worth investing in. Investigate ways of “tagging” items so that information relationships are maintained as necessary. Investigate plausibility of importing the digitized image of the original index card to appear alongside returned results.

Implement migration of small sub-set of information to demonstrate your findings. Project tasks: remainder of project (70 hours) There are two ways the remainder of the project could go, depending upon the results of the initial scoping: Pathway 1 – Omeka.net is suitable for data migration With support from the Digital Content team (based at the Science Museum) prepare the data for importing. This may involve implementing global changes. The Digital Content team can advise if necessary, on which tools exist to help make this process less laborious and time consuming. Sufficient allocation of time should be earmarked for this part of the project. If image migration is discovered to be workable, arrange for mass migration of images. Investigate and if time, set up, analytics to enable us to monitor researcher usage. Complete report on methodology to enable us to understand what has been done for future administration. Write your experiences for the NRM blog http://blog.nrm.org.uk/ Pathway 2 – Omeka.net is not suitable for data migration Depending on why Omeka.net is unsuitable will frame this pathway direction. It still may be appropriate to implement global changes, in which case the first part of Pathway 1 still applies. Or it may be worth investigating other options such as JISC’s Research Data Shared Service pilot project to see if that route may suit the project better in the future. Provide a report on other options with recommendations.

Person Specification

  • Must Have - theoretical knowledge of how to mass migrate information and its considerations Have a positive attitude to problem-solving
  • Desirable - Practical experience mass migrating information Ability to work on own but an awareness of when to ask for help An awareness of the work of the NRM or museum sector.

This position is only available through the Postgraduate Advantage Scheme to PGT students in the Faculty of Social Sciences.
