Policy Internship

24 Oct 2023

CaSE is looking for someone to undertake a six-month internship in our team who will gain experience in policy and public affairs.

The six-month internship will start on a date to be agreed in the winter 2023/24. We are flexible as to whether the internship is part-time or full-time. The role would be line managed by the Director of Sector Engagement and work closely with our Policy Officer as well as interacting across the CaSE Team. There will be opportunities for interns to widen their experience of all aspects of CaSE’s policy work and to develop their skills in other areas, for example through political monitoring, writing for our blog and supporting our policy events.

CaSE is a small organisation with big impact. It is fast-paced, fun, and operates at the highest levels of politics, business, academia and the media. Everyone at CaSE gives their all and we look to our intern candidates to do the same. In return, our interns benefit from the opportunity to experience everything we do first-hand and make a big contribution to a small team.  We encourage our interns to develop as much as they can in an environment with unrivalled access and opportunity.
