YCN (You Can Now) is a next-gen learning partner to creatively driven organisations of all shapes and sizes — from foodie favourites like KFC and Dishoom to burgeoning tech companies like Whereby and SuperAwesome; publishers like the Guardian and It's Nice That to amazing charities like Shelter and Action for Children.
We support personalised, continual learning throughout our partners' teams, from the leaders at the top to their newest hires — helping their people to build in-demand skills for the modern world of work. Those could be skills like leading distributed teams, upping presentation skills or learning more about neurodiversity. Have a look at our website for a good sense of the topics we're exploring with our community right now.

As a Programme and Partnerships Intern you’ll be working directly with members of our partners' teams, enriching our relationships and helping them to make the most of all they can access in the world of YCN. You'll also be helping us to research and identify our future partners too, by supporting ongoing marketing efforts.

— Helping to facilitate the day-to-day experience our partners have with our platform and programmes; whether helping to manage the calendar or warmly respond to the questions and suggestions we receive.
— Researching existing and emergent topics within our learning programme to support the ongoing development of courses and curation of resources.
— Supporting the shaping and sharing of personal development plans for our partners’ teams.
— Researching potential future partners to support new business.
— Participating in kick off sessions with new partner teams to capture individual and collective learning goals.
— Supporting the scheduling and community management of tailored partner programmes.
— Helping to follow up with course participants to share ongoing resources and capture feedback.
— Preparing and sharing reports with principles in our partners teams to show learner engagement.

You: We hope this paid internship will appeal to someone interested in the people and culture / learning and development space — and keen to sharpen their relational and research skills in a stimulating and supportive environment. You'll also have full access to all our courses and resources, and we'll be keen to hear other of ways we can support you towards current and future goals.
We’re currently working remotely, transitioning back to our workspace at 72 Rivington Street in London — but will be retaining an entirely flexible approach to working. So we’re open to the internship being experienced entirely remotely or in a hybrid fashion — whichever works best for you, and wherever you are in the world.
Equally we’re open to the number of days within the week you’d like to work. If this sounds like a relevant and interesting opportunity, we'd love to hear from you.
We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive team and community; value different thinking styles and strengths, and are open to any adjustments to best support you in your time working with us.
