Applications for 2023 internships are open now!

You can apply for an internship in one of our host teams when the call re-opens. We advertise for internships on annual basis. For more information and application details, please see the ‘how to apply’ section.

A Chatham House internship is your chance to work with our community of world-leading policy experts and make lifelong connections. If you are passionate about international affairs and looking for a career in the sector, we want to hear from you.

Former interns have gone on to play instrumental roles in governments, NGOs, academic institutions, international organizations and think tanks.

Join us and learn about shaping policies, influencing debates and creating real change.

For more information on the application process, and to meet our diverse teams, join us at our Open Day event on 2 February, and register your interest here.

What is involved?

Our internships last for six months, and we offer from 8-12 internships each year.

Interns benefit from direct involvement in projects across a wide range of topics, while supporting operations, events and social media engagement.

Working closely with a host team, you will enjoy dedicated development time and opportunities to improve skills like public speaking and event chairing. Your assigned mentor will support and guide you throughout the internship, suggesting training opportunities and helping you define your professional and career goals.
