• Following latest policy developments and news and researching issues, possible

• Bright graduates with exceptional aptitude and professional outlook will also be

• Practical focus and passionate about helping achieve our mission of providing policy

• Excellent communication, organisational and time management skills – and quick to
learn
• Ability to assimilate information quickly, identify key issues from a range of
stakeholder viewpoints (in line with our core proposition of impartiality)
• Clear, stylish accurate writing is essential

There’s a high degree of fast-paced multi-tasking but support from senior editorial staff and rest of the 85-strong team is always on hand.

The company:

• Our work enjoys considerable support from legislators, government, industry, the third

• An expanding organisation with plenty of opportunities for career progression for the
right candidates.
