Ideally I would like to be a policy advisor for an NGO like Oxfam or Actionaid, before kids I was in PR (so transferable skills), 8 years off as SAHM to twins, during which time I built an eco house into a hillside and am about to finish MSc (international development). Not keen on admin type jobs (not very good at admin!), don't have the experience for the policy advisor job, - what should I be looking at? Am late 30's - would interning help or am I too old for that?

Try a smaller charity and work your way up. You also need to focus on the area that you want to advise on and get some experience in this area.
