Are you looking to gain valuable work experience within the environmental field whilst being able to make a real difference? Then we want to hear from you!


We are very excited to be able to open applications for our 2015 Development Program. The Green Chair Recycling Development Program is designed for people who want to expand and challenge their understanding of sustainability and recycling. Through a series of workshops we will explore and discuss various relevant topics.

We have steered away from calling this our ‘internship’ program, as this word means different things to different people! Through our program you will learn and develop valuable insight into sustainability and recycling as well as career development and communication skills. Plus you’ll get to meet a group of like-minded people and share your ideas and passion!

The program is open to everyone who wants to learn more about sustainability and recycling. There is no required base knowledge just a desire to learn more. All applicants should have a comfortable handle of English and be able to give 3 months commitment.
