Are you interested in a course-accredited internship or volunteer opportunity in the ethical fashion industry?

People Tree is based in East London, just off Brick Lane in the vibrant and cultural Shoreditch. Our team includes approximately 20 people working in design, sourcing, logistics, wholesale, merchandising, customer service, accounting, public relations and marketing. While we come from a wide variety of backgrounds, we all share a passion for Fair Trade and sustainable fashion.

We are regularly looking for interns in design, wholesale, public relations and marketing. People Tree internships, or work placements, are for students on a course of study for whom the work placement is an accredited part of their course. We give preference to those committing to a six month placement as they are more likely to gain more from the placement. We pay a small daily allowance towards travel expenses. If that sounds good to you, check out our current vacancies below. We look forward to hearing from you!

We are frequently looking for volunteers to get involved in the work of the People Tree Foundation. The People Tree Foundation is an independent charity, working alongside People Tree the Fair Trade Company. People Tree had its beginnings in 1991, and continues today to be the pioneer of Fair Trade Fashion internationally, promoting environmental justice and Fair Trade. The Foundation will bring benefits to an even greater number of farmers and artisans through scaling up training, technical support and environmental initiatives and through raising awareness and campaigning for fair and sustainable fashion.
