Salary: £10.20/hr (London Living Wage)

Job Details

A full time Policy Intern is required for the public health charity Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) for 3 months, with the potential to extend. 

Smoking is the largest preventable cause of death and disease in the UK and accounts for half the difference in life expectancy between the richest and poorest in society.

ASH’s work touches on a wide range of disciplines - including (among many others) politics, law, media and film, advertising, tax, economics, statistics, addiction and its treatment, and medical conditions from cot death to cancer. We do not therefore specify any particular academic background or training. Rather, it is an exciting opportunity to gain experience in a small, dynamic policy and campaigns team.

The successful candidate will demonstrate:

  • A strong academic record and relevant university degree
  • An interest in politics and health policy
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong administrative and IT skills

We welcome applications from postgraduate students. Non-EU nationals must already have the right to work in UK.

Closing Date: 17 June 2018

Interview/Start Dates

Closing time: Midnight.

Interviews will be held on Friday 22nd June in central London, with a start date as soon as possible. 

Application Details

Please email your CV and a covering letter to admin@smokefreeaction.org.uk. Those shortlisted for interview will be contacted on Wednesday 20th June.
