Policy secondment opportunities

Interested in learning more about the development of policy?

UCL and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills are working together to develop a policy secondment scheme for UCL researchers which will provide valuable experience of the policymaking environment and how research can inform policy, and insight into the work of a Government department.

Secondment opportunities are on a flexible, part-time basis, usually for a short fixed-term period.  Applicants from all disciplines are encouraged. For further details of opportunities and to discuss funding arrangements, please contact Sarah Chaytor.
