Eamon Rooke who interned in 2012 says: "Interning with Oxfam has been one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences that I've ever had. I've learned the best ways to communicate and organise in the management of events and activism generally. I've become more confident in the skills I had prior to interning, and have been encouraged to pursue them through the supporting Oxfam team. This has made me much more employable than I was 6 months ago! But more importantly, I've worked within an organisation that's passionate about ending poverty. At Oxfam, you real feel a part of an global, social movement for justice. Whether you're training volunteers, or chasing tanks through central London, It doesn't really get more fulfilling than that."
