Internships and Medium Term Marine Conservation Volunteering Opportunities

Our internships and medium term volunteering positions require more of a commitment than the short term volunteering opportunities that we offer. You will need to consider the following if you are thinking about applying for a position with us:


• Internship positions generally run for a minimum of 10 weeks (approx. 35 hours/week); part time volunteering positions require a minimum commitment of 5 days (40 hours) per month over a period of 8-12 weeks.


• Our internships and outreach positions are currently unpaid (Marine Dimensions is a small non profit). You will also be expected to cover the cost of your own accommodation, including travel and expenses, unless you are travelling with us around the country on roadshows.


• You may need to be available for evening and weekend events, eg. we regularly run wildlife workshops, marine biology courses and awareness days on Saturday or Sunday.


• You should be willing to travel (either with us from Bray in Co. Wicklow or independently) to events around the country, eg. in 2017 we will be running workshops in Wicklow, Dublin, Louth, Wexford, Donegal, Clare, Limerick and Kerry.


• You will need to be able to work on your own initiative and as part of a team.


• You must be at least 16 years of age and be willing to be Garda Vetted.
