Job Details

The Institute for Government is currently inviting applications for our autumn 2018 internship programme, starting in September/October 2018.

What we are looking for:

We are looking to take on a number of interns in September/October 2018 to work across the research and learning team. The precise nature of each internship will vary according to the needs of projects, but past interns have found themselves carrying out literature reviews, conducting interviews with MPs and civil servants, organising events, undertaking data collection and analysis, presenting research findings to colleagues, writing blogs and contributing to published reports. Interns are also required to help out with some administrative and other tasks.

Applicants should be confident and reliable graduates with:

  • An excellent academic record,
  • A degree/predicted grade of 2:1 or above, or international equivalent,
  • Knowledge of or strong interest in government in the UK and elsewhere,
  • Strong analytical, organisational and communication (both written/verbal) skills,
  • Commitment to the values and mission of the Institute for Government.

Our offer to you

We offer you the opportunity to:

  • become a full member of the research and learning team in a highly-respected institution at the heart of Westminster with close connections to government and all political parties;
  • take a fresh, evidence-based look at a range of issues, to improve the Institute’s understanding of problems facing government, and to help develop innovative solutions to these problems;
  • work with other Institute staff and external partners to deliver the Institute’s research and learning programme;
  • work on projects combining traditional research with practitioner and expert workshops and stimulating public and private events;
  • contribute to high quality publications, presentations and events.

Applicants should be available to work on a full-time basis. Internships are offered for three months in the first instance. There is the potential to extend – normally to a maximum of six months – subject to strong performance.

Closing Date: 25 June 2018

Interview/Start Dates

Shortlisted candidates will be invited in for an interview in July 2018 (during w/c 9 July 2018). We are happy to arrange Skype/telephone interviews if you are not able to come to London (please indicate this when you are filling out the online application form).

The Institute uses an online application process for its internships. This includes a timed multiple choice test (including verbal and numerical reasoning).
