The Henry Jackson Society offers a variety of internships aimed at politically-minded, enthusiastic and self-motivated individuals. Our internships offer a valuable immersion into the world of international relations and are designed to foster career development.

Internship programmes are available mainly within the Society’s research centres, and within our Communications and Events departments. General internships are also available for the right candidates.

All interns are also expected to help with events.

Please note that during the Covid-19 Pandemic, internships will be conducted remotely.
