Are you passionate about policy and politics? Do you have an entrepreneurial mind-set and a desire to be part of a developing business? Are you at ease with new technology and digital innovations? And do you fancy explaining the intricacies of Brexit, EU decision making and the changing nature of worker classification to those less familiar with the big developments of our times?
Come and join us at Inline Policy, a pioneering political consultancy and policy advisory firm that offers comprehensive political and regulatory advice to fast-growing and innovative companies.
Our team covers some of the most exciting policy areas and business sectors, including:
- Sharing & on-Demand Economy;
- Emerging technologies (e.g. drones and driverless cars);
- Artificial intelligence and robotics;
- Online platforms;
- European Affairs.
HOW WE DIFFER
Inline specialises in working with fast-growing companies that are facing policy and regulatory change. We identify growth sectors at an early stage, develop extensive political and regulatory expertise in those areas, and apply our public affairs and strategy knowledge and experience. We aim to grow alongside our clients, offering additional products and services as they develop and as the political and regulatory environment evolves.
Inline is seeking to employ a highly motivated intern for a six-month placement, to join our Brussels office.
Graduates will be responsible for:
- producing written briefings on the political and regulatory environment;
- assisting with the delivery of client projects;
