George, Conference and Events Intern 2019

“Working at the Education Policy Institute gave me an unparalleled insight into the workings of a think tank. The internship was incredibly well structured and if I needed further support the team were always on hand. The role will give you the chance to meet MPs, promote quality evidence-based research and liaise with stakeholders from across the sector. This position will challenge you, broaden your horizons and give you experiences you’ll look back on fondly. The intimate office environment allows you to meet with and learn from staff from across the institute; in weekly meetings you will learn about their work and actively contribute to the workings of EPI. If you are passionate about education and seeking a challenging, yet rewarding experience, I would highly recommend applying to this position.”
