BPD jobs and volunteering

Volunteer internships

There are currently no salaried vacancies at BPD. However, BPD benefits from and is grateful for the work and commitment of volunteer interns, both in the London office and home-based. These opportunities are particularly ideal for undergraduate or postgraduate students looking to gain experience and knowledge of the water and sanitation sector or international development in general and as a networking opportunity. BPD is flexible and can offer internships for varying durations and hours and also accepts interns only looking for opportunities during the summer. If you would like to explore internship opportunities with BPD, please contact us.

 What previous interns say

"My experience as an intern at BPD was excellent. The staff are very friendly and willing to share their experiences, and I was able to learn a lot about thought leadership in the WASH area and how BPD interact with their clients and the WASH NGO community.


My time there was beneficial to my career, as it gave me structure to learn IT skills as well as communications. I am currently working for an international management consultancy firm, where the skills and knowledge that I gained during my time with BPD have enabled me to be identified as an international subject matter expert in water sustainability and development, and I have drawn upon BPD's library as a source in communicating with colleagues and clients. I would definitely encourage anyone interested in this area to pursue an internship with BPD."
