Job Details

We are looking for a new team member to come and join the energy and environment (E+E) practice and work across all of our projects. This is the ideal first or second job for a bright graduate who is interested in working in net zero-related policy.

You may be someone who has recently graduated from a degree with some numerical element or has spent one or two years in a political or numerically literate role. Our ideal candidate is comfortable using Excel and PowerPoint and likes working collaboratively in a team. You don’t need to have a science degree or a qualification related to sustainability but our team really values problem-solving, political nous and initiative.

In return, you’ll be part of a team delivering policy, reputation and ESG projects and campaigns. You will deepen your knowledge of the political landscape surrounding net zero, help us to analyse the views of the public and elites, and bring research to life for our clients.

The role will include some or all of the following key responsibilities:

  • Undertaking background research on E+E policies, programmes and projects.
  • Identifying, exploring and explaining case studies
  • Providing administrative support to E+E projects
  • Assisting with new business generation
  • Locating common statistics and datasets and understanding how to perform basic manipulation on them
  • Analysing poll results and creating charts to explain them to others
  • Understanding best practice in rapid, comprehensive desk research
  • Conducting research analysis and producing clear, compelling prose
  • Training in our Energy and Environment specialism, gaining familiarity with other Public First services, and enjoying some of the Public First reading list

Closing Date: 3 July 2022
