Unltd sport relief

This just popped into my inbox yesterday from the brilliant people at firstport/scotland unltd.  They are a funding body and we were lucky enough this year over at Mypolice HQ to get the social entrepreneurs funding from them.  They’ve got the fingers in lots of great tasting pies, and unltd sport relief is one of them.  Now they have a fantastic opportunity to get involved, and really think designers with their great research skills would be very good at this.  If you want a form, download it from here.

The UnLtd Sport Relief Research Internship UnLtd Research is conducting a youth-led research project with UnLtd Sport Relief (Make It Happen), a UK wide funding programme for 11-21 year olds who bring communities together, help promote understanding and solve problems through sport, arts and recreational activities.

This research will involve visiting a small number of projects funded by the Make It Happen Programme to find out about what problems they are addressing, how their activities are helping tackle these problems and the impact they are having. We are looking for 6 research interns (aged 18-25) from each of our UnLtd office regions; Bradford, Birmingham, London, Cardiff, Belfast and Edinburgh who can commit to 30 days work (2-4 days per week) from June 21st to September 21st 2010. These positions will be paid at £85 per day (plus any additional travel and accommodation expenses incurred) and will include attending an induction, regular training meetings and undertaking project visits to conduct research. This is an exciting opportunity to gain extensive research training and practical experience planning, designing and carrying out a research project.

No formal research skills or experience are necessary for this position. However, we do ask that you bring a number of qualities to this role, including an ability to work independently and within a small team, openness to learning new approaches and excellent inter-personal skills.  For more details/application form email
