Website Institute of Economic Affairs

The IEA is the UK’s original free-market think-tank, founded in 1955. Our mission is to improve understanding of the fundamental institutions of a free society by analysing and expounding the role of markets in solving economic and social problems. The IEA challenges people to think about the correct role of institutions, property rights and the rule of law in creating a society that fosters innovation, entrepreneurship and the efficient use of environmental resources. The IEA is an educational charity (No CC 235 351) and independent research institute limited by guarantee.

The IEA Internship is a temporary, unpaid and voluntary position with commuting expenses covered, which is based in our Operations Team where as an Intern, you will have the opportunity of supporting all aspects of the IEA’s work.

This programme is aimed at all those with an interest in free-market economics who wish to expand their horizon while contributing to the IEA’s objectives. Candidates are expected to be team players who are happy to work on a range of different tasks and possess a good knowledge of Microsoft Office.

Responsibilities may include:

  • Operations support – conducting mailouts, stocktaking, helping with ad hoc requests from other staff members, and hosting events such as Live with Littlewood, IEA Book Club, webinars, lunches, dinners, or awards ceremonies.
  • Office support – manning the Front Office, providing hospitality experience to the stakeholders, preparing the meetings and interviews, or helping with recruitment.
  • Departmental support – data gathering, briefings, proofreading, summaries, press releases and research projects.
  • Personal research – writing blogs, debating and presenting the topics of your interest to the IEA Staff. You will be supported by senior researchers throughout your time working as an intern.
  • Project management – operating systems such as Kanban and Scrum in real-time. Interns led projects such as the digitalisation of the IEA’s phone system or organising a temporary office.

The goal of this internship is for you to develop and expand your skillset, as well as support the operational functions of the think tank. We will therefore attempt to tailor the internship to your personal interests and ambitions, where this is an option. In particular, you will have the chance to work with all departments and different researchers, depending on your areas of expertise and interest.

The internship lasts three months. However, depending on your performance, you will have the possibility of extending your time at the IEA further. The internship will be fully on-site at our office in Westminster, London.
