[Job, London] Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research (beating blood cancers) | Press intern, ??expenses, clos ?? #scicomm -ish jobs

You may have seen L&LRs rather good “Not until we’ve beaten blood cancer” ad campaign showing a white coat and stethoscope being hung up. More of that here http://www.beatbloodcancers.org/not-until-weve-beaten-blood-cancer

They’re on Twitter at http://twitter.com/beatbloodcancer

This unpaid job looked to me as if it would include some sciencey stuff, in addition to the events and celebrity things – possibly stem cell transplants will crop up every now and again…

Didn’t spot a closing date.

    Hi JoSerena from Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research here. We’re very excited about our ad campaign (I think it’s our first of this kind) and have had lots of positive feedback. ThanksI work in the press team (mostly managing social media stuff) and it’s a small but really friendly team. The press internship is designed as an ongoing post and as flexible as possible for the interns. The job will take in a lot of variety: the opportunity to work on fun stories, interview people personally affected by blood cancers and help analyse our press coverage. It’d be a great opportunity to someone who’s just graduated and is thinking about working in PR, writing for a charity or in a research organisation.If this sounds like you, we look forward to hearing from you soon 🙂
