    Is working for peace a life commitment for you? Are you looking for an opportunity to work in this field? We're seeking enthusiastic people who want to develop their skills, knowledge and commitment to peace through placement with a national organisation in Britain. We select the people we want, then try to match their interests and skills with opportunities offered by a range of organisations. These have recently included War Resisters International, Medact, Campaign Against Arms Trade and Conscience.

    The work will be varied and project specific. Applicants should demonstrate their passion and commitment to peace and justice work, sympathy with the values of Quakers, adaptability, ability to work on their own initiative and as part of a team. Transferable skills, such as administration and IT, will be an advantage.

    This year we are particularly interested in placing with organisations working on:

    Grassroots/community training and capacity building for action

    Militarism, attitudes to war, World War 1 commemoration, conscientious objection, and promoting alternative responses to violent conflict

    Connecting peace with issues of economic and environmental justice, including connecting peace with issues of displacement of peoples.

    However, we are always open to bold, confident and radical new projects.

    This placement includes a preparation period of 2 weeks. We regret that we are unable to accept applications from candidates without existing permission to work in the UK.
