The Highlands and Islands Students’ Association (HISA) is looking for an intern to join the Gaelic Representation Project team. You will have a great opportunity to be part of an exciting Gaelic development project that aims to make a difference for the lives of students.
HISA is excited to undertake the Gaelic Representation Project (Pròiseact Riochdachaidh Gàidhlig – PRG). The PRG will create representation structures to ensure that Gaelic speakers across the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) are able to engage with their students’ association in Gaelic, should they wish to do so.
We are looking for someone who has an interest in Gaelic development, is enthusiastic about the student voice and can communicate effectively, bilingually, with others. As you will have a student-facing aspect to your role, we wish to find someone confident speaking to people, as well as having excellent organisational skills as you will be supporting the research work of the project manager.
The role is a fixed-hours contract. This means that over the course of the contract, you will work 260 hours – on average 10 hours per week – in 26 working weeks. There shall be breaks over the assessment period and in July. The contract will end on week beginning 16 November, setting up nicely before the Xmas assessment period!
You do not need prior experience of this sort of work as this is an internship opportunity, although your previous roles, studies and experiences may be to your advantage.
