Conservation Programs Intern – Massachusetts Land Trust Coalition
Working closely with the Executive Director, Programs Manager and planning committees made of representatives from across the land conservation community, the Intern will provide research, technical assistance and logistical support for MLTC’s educational programs, including some or all of the following:
- The annual Land Trust/State Agency Retreat in October and the Massachusetts Land Conservation Conference in March;
- Online resources including a documents library, video library, service provider directory and grants database;
- Occasional workshops, seminars and networking meetings;
- Quarterly conservation partners meetings;
- Occasional meetings of MLTC’s Early Career Conservation Network.
Subject to available time, interest and aptitude, the Intern may also work closely with the Executive Director and/or Development and Communications Coordinator on one or more of the following:
- Research, writing and/or graphic design in support of MLTC’s work on state policy priorities;
- Research, writing, formatting and/or graphic design in support of MLTC’s electronic newsletter and social media communications.
Note that this is an administrative position, not an in-the-field position. MLTC is based in Sudbury, MA, but most of this work will be performed from your home or school office. Frequent online meetings via Zoom are required. Ability to travel to a few meetings around Massachusetts would be highly beneficial to both MLTC and the intern.
Key skills we’re looking for:
- An interest in conservation and the nuts and bolts of an organization that protects the environment
- Curiosity, ingenuity, initiative, teamwork and problem-solving skills
- Sound judgment, discretion, and keen attention to detail
- Great communication skills and natural ability to treat stakeholders from all backgrounds with collegiality and respect
- Fluency with common computer applications
This is a paid, part-time position throughout the 2023-2024 Academic Year, 10 – 19 hours per week (negotiable). MLTC is happy to cooperate with the selected candidate to meet requirements of an academic credit program, if desired and appropriate.
MLTC is committed to an inclusive conservation workforce. Black, Indigenous, and other people of color, as well as individuals from other historically underrepresented communities, are strongly encouraged to apply.
