We're looking for a research intern for our Futures team.

At Forum we aim to create change by transforming organisations and the sectors they work in. We partner with a global audience of professionals working in business, the public sector and civil society. Our work in Futures underpins much of the work we do at Forum and significantly contributes to our ability to help create a sustainable world.

As an intern, you would benefit from exposure to Forum’s work, network and people. You will specifically contribute to Forum’s trend database through your research.

Duties will change from week to week but the successful applicant could be:

  • Researching information about global trends with a sustainability lens

  • Contributing to Forum's weak signals blog

The successful candidate is likely to have:

  • some experience in qualitative research and analysis
  • an understanding of trends and how they relate to each other
  • an interest in sustainable development
  • an understanding of basic database entry

This internship covers three to five days a week for three months. Lunch expenses up to £5 a day and travel costs from within London (zones 1-6) can be claimed back.

To apply, please send your CV with a covering letter explaining how you meet the requirements and why you would like to intern with Forum's Futures' team, together with an equal opportunities form to Sophie Kennedy, HR Assistant, Forum for the Future, London EC1V 3QN or by email to recruitment@forumforthefuture.org
