Government Affairs Internship

June 2019

TPA Research is recruiting interns on a three-month basis with a view towards a permanent position thereafter. This will be a remote, part-time internship with regular interaction with the management team of TPA Research, both by phone and in person.


The ideal candidate for this role will have a strong knowledge of political structures at EU and Member State level, and an understanding of how policy decisions affect financial markets. An interest in current affairs, and a willingness to maintain knowledge of developments across Europe, are essential.


Expertise in a particular area is welcome, but the ability to quickly familiarise oneself with a wide range of new topics is as important. Candidates should also be able to demonstrate strong writing skills, with an emphasis on concision and clarity. A writing exercise will form part of the recruitment process. Work will be carried out in English, but a working knowledge of a second European language will be welcome.


Key Responsibilities


  • Assisting in the preparation of regular, forward looking research reports, typically 700 – 1000 words in length, focusing on political, economic, and financial developments in the EU, UK, and Europe more widely, and with both a macro and micro focus.

  • Consistent monitoring of subject areas relevant to individual TPA clients, forming the basis for regular bespoke updates.

  • Helping prepare and, where appropriate, participating in conference calls with clients, providing on the spot analysis and fielding questions.
