Website Onward

Onward is a modernising think tank whose mission is to develop bold and practical ideas to boost economic opportunity and strengthen communities in all parts of the United Kingdom. We believe in a mainstream conservatism – one that recognises the value of markets and supports the good that government can do, is unapologetic about standing up to vested interests, and assiduous in supporting the hardworking, aspirational and those left behind. Our goal is to address the needs of the whole country: young as well as old; urban as well as rural; and for all parts of the UK – particularly places that feel neglected or ignored in Westminster.

Onward is looking for an exceptional candidate to join our six-month paid internship programme. The role will expose the successful candidate to all aspects of Onward’s work: you will contribute to our research programmes, help organise events with frontline politicians and world-leading experts, and support media campaigns.

Our paid interns work closely with Onward’s research team to develop new ideas for the country’s greatest social and economic policy challenges. The successful candidate will typically be responsible for supporting the research process, including conducting data analysis, policy research and drafting. This will range across our research programmes: Levelling Up, Social Fabric, Getting to Zero and Science and Technology.

In addition, interns support Onward’s busy events and engagement programmes. This will typically involve curating our weekly newsletter, organising events with leading ministers and policymakers, generating ideas for future events and supporting our wider political and social media engagement.

Requirements:

  • Excellent writing skills
  • Experience in a relevant field and good awareness of British politics
  • Strong data analysis skills, with bonus points for R or Stata experience
  • Familiarity with social media desired
  • Adaptability and a can-do attitude
