Internships at the Constitution Unit: now recruiting for April 2012

Publication date:

This is an opportunity for you as an intern to spend time working in an influential research body, and for us to benefit from the skills you can bring. An internship here is an ideal way for recent graduates to gain experience of work in a policy research environment to inform and support their career choices.

Interns include students in the vacation, postgraduates thinking about doing a PhD, and civil and public servants who work for us part-time or on secondment. Our recruitment is guided by the needs of our researchers and by the interests and experience of our applicants. Applicants will normally have a degree or equivalent in Social Studies or Political Science, in Law or in some related subject and should be able to demonstrate that they have the research and office skills needed for work in a research environment.

As an intern you will be attached to one of our researchers, who will take responsibility for the majority of your workload. Interns with particular skills may occasionally be asked to work for other researchers when this is felt appropriate. The work is varied and will be assigned to reflect your skills and areas of interest. We also offer some training where this is appropriate.

Internships generally last three months, full or part time, and we are flexible in working hours. The positions are voluntary, but the Unit will pay travel costs. We very much value the work done by our interns and you will be treated as part of the team.
