Do you want to help create solutions for society’s biggest problems? Why not work in a think tank!
Think tanks are research organisations that develop ideas on a whole range of subjects affecting society and make suggestions for action. They tackle economic, social and political issues, using research, analysis, and commentary to inform and influence politicians, policy makers, and the public.
There are a huge range of think tanks, so whether you want to work for a party-political organisation, or a non-partisan one, you can find something that will suit you!
For more information about think tanks and how to discover more about them, focus your options, or create an action plan and apply, have a look at our sector guides. We’re constantly updating them, so keep checking back!
A group of think tanks and similar organisations have joined together to encourage more diversity in the world of research and policy making. This event is aimed at:
- People from BAME groups
- People with work-limiting health problems or disabilities
- Young adults with caring responsibilities (including young parents)
- People from lower-income backgrounds
- Care leavers
Don’t forget – Careers & Employability has got custom content and additional support for students from the above groups -you can read more on our diversity pages.
The event will be on Wednesday 5th February in Westminster and talks by think tanks will focus on:
- Introduction to think tanks and the wider sector
- A day in the life of a think-tank researcher
- Application guidance
There will be an informal networking session, so you’ll have a chance to meet people and to ask questions.
