As a Policy Intern with a focus on EU policy, you’ll be exposed to a wide variety of work as part of a growing business. You’ll have perfect written English as we produce written summaries of policy debates in almost real-time. Attention to detail and being organised are critical. You won’t turn up late to work – we start each day with a team meeting ensuring we are all on top of our brief. This won’t be the first time you have done paid work.
You’ll already have a strong knowledge of the EU legislative process and previous workplace skills and experience are essential. How you learn rather than what you can memorise is most important for life at OPP.
What you’ll do
You’ll be trained how to monitor (and eventually analyse) EU policy on a daily basis to keep our clients informed of legislative developments as they happen. Real-time monitoring requires grit and determination as well as a love of policy. You’ll be keen to read policy documents on a daily basis.
We’ll also train you to write concise summaries of policy debates. However you will bring with you native-level English written skills.
Skills you’ll demonstrate
We expect Masters level education as standard. A European Studies MA is obviously an advantage as you’ll hit the ground running.
Your working environment
You’ll be based in a house full of people working in the industry where you’re able to see the European Parliament. When you are not in the office, you’ll be out networking in the Brussels bubble, attending events, and inviting people over for coffee. You’ll need a mature approach to work as you’ll enjoy the concept of self-management and strive to consistently exceed expectations. We’ll all support you every step of the way.
