Interested in learning more about the fast-paced world of research? Looking for an internship? We are offering a paid internship for a period of 12 weeks starting this Autumn (c. October 2021). You do not need previous experience in research, just a curious mind, a positive attitude & an interest in people and what makes them tick… we can teach you the rest!
This year, our internship has a Qualitative leaning. That said, a large number of our studies are integrated studies which involve Quantitative surveys & data, so you’ll likely get experience of both aspects. Our internship programme is setup to ensure a good understanding of the research industry and covers:
- Time working on Qualitative projects
- Time working on Digital projects
- First-hand experience in various research designs/techniques including Quantitative studies
- Discovering the end-to-end process of a project
- Assisting with analysis and storytelling
- Training on how to write a digital script
- Attending a debrief (where possible)
- And much more!
We also give our interns an opportunity to run their own research project during the internship which they can run & manage in entirety (with an advisor available to them for support). The end result is a blog post which we will post on www.2cv.com.
This is a paid internship. We want to help more people get into the industry, and become researchers. Very few people are fortunate enough to be able to work for free, and we want our internship to be available to everyone. We don’t demand that you have a university degree. All we ask is that you can provide evidence of having an inquisitive mind, a genuine interest in people, and a desire to enter the industry.
To be considered for a place on our internship programme please send your CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10th August 2021. Please note that the best 6 candidates will be given an opportunity to attend a 4 hour ‘selection morning’ on w/c 6th September 2021 where you will be given some group and individual tasks so we can get a better feel for who you are, your style of work and how you engage within a group/team exercise. We will then select 2 interns to join us for the 12-week period which will begin w/c 20th September 2021. At the end of this period we make no guarantees that there will be a full-time role available; this is dependent on team needs & business performance along with individual performance during the internship. More information on the potential for a full-time role would be shared during the internship.
Please note: we are unable to sponsor anyone through this internship so all applicants needs to have the right to work in the UK.
We are hoping to run the selection morning at our offices in Central London. Your temperature will be taken upon arrival, and we would ask you to take a rapid lateral flow test prior to arriving to confirm you are covid-free or show us evidence of having had two vaccines.
Whilst flexible working is a big part of how 2CV operates, we believe that the interns would get the best experience & widest learning opportunities by being in the office. Focussed work time can certainly be done from home, but please assume that you would be needed in the office the majority of the 12 weeks.
