Graduate Researchers – April 2019 Intake
Damon De Ionno

As part of our graduate scheme, we have two internship opportunities starting in April 2019, both for aspiring and enthusiastic junior researchers who are keen to develop a career in applied research.

Joining initially on a 3-month paid internship, you will be active in supporting a close knit growing team and learning the ropes of agency research.

You would be involved in helping with both everyday tasks as well as immersing yourself in complex challenges. This role would suit a confident, inquisitive person, genuinely interested in people and naturally analytically minded and detail orientated.  A social sciences background is an advantage but not essential.

We are fully committed to our internship programme and are a fast-growing business so it is highly likely that both these internships will convert into permanent roles after the initial 3-month period.
