Do you want to help find solutions to society’s biggest problems? Have you ever thought about working for a think tank?

Think tanks are research organisations that develop ideas on a whole range of subjects affecting society and make suggestions for action. They tackle economic, social and political issues, using research, analysis and commentary to inform and influence politicians, policy makers and the public.

A group of think tanks and similar organisations have joined together to encourage more diversity in the world of research and policy making, and we are holding this event to de-mystify the world of think tanks.

This event is aimed at:

  • People from BAME groups
  • People with work-limiting health conditions or disabilities
  • Young adults with caring responsibilities (including young parents)
  • People from lower-income backgrounds
  • Care leavers

Join us to find out what think tanks are, what they do and what it’s like to work for one. We’ll also cover how you enter the think tank world, and there will be opportunities to talk to people from all these organisations.

The event will consist of a series of short presentations alongside informal networking sessions. Staff from a range of different think tanks will cover:

  • Introduction to think tanks and the wider sector
  • A day in the life of a think-tank researcher
  • Application guidance

Date: Wednesday 5th February 2020, 16:30 – 18:30

Venue: Institute for Government, 2 Carlton Gardens, London, SW1Y 5AA
