The Henry Jackson Initiative was founded to foster economic policy recommendations and business analysis in the wake of the financial crisis of 2007 – 2008. We have a practical focus on private sector action and support capitalism while maintaining a case for its reform.
We are currently offering full-time Research Assistant internship opportunities for our rolling internship programme. The next tranche of appointments will be in mid July/August and interns should ideally be willing to commit to a period of at least 3 months in duration.
Interns will be involved in every aspect of our international programme – covering research, events, media and parliamentary liaison, publications, and administration – and will be given responsibility for specific projects as well as being expected to provide general assistance.
We are looking for motivated self-starters who are capable of acting independently and who possess the capacity to absorb and execute instructions quickly in a busy environment. Experience of research and business policy – either academically or professionally – is preferred, but not essential for the main internships.
