Work Experience

The evolution of the human rights movement is intertwined with Jewish experience and Jewish values. It is vital that people from all walks of life understand and advocate for their rights.

René Cassin is very happy to host work experience students and provide the opportunity to learn about our human rights campaigns and gain insight into what it’s like working for a human rights charity.

Your work will include supporting the team by attending meetings and events with partners; conducting research; working on social media and any other ad-hoc needs in a friendly work environment.

Interested in undertaking some work experience with us and working to champion human rights?
