Join our team

Our team helps to run Centre and on this page you can apply to join it. Joining helps us to run our organisation and it gives new policy makers more experience.

Why join our team?

  • You get to write papers and articles on issues you care about. Our papers are often released with forewords written by politicians or candidates that we work with and we also release them on social media.
  • As part of Centre you get to help change the minds of activists and politicians. For instance we presented our “Expanding furlough” paper to the Gaps in Support APPG which consisted of 260 MPs which then recommended it as reading for the Chancellor. We also took part in events including MPs and activists to raise awareness of the issue.
  • You learn skills along the way. Whether its designing graphics, improving your writing skills and editing videos or podcasts.
  • Our team members have often gone off to work in other organisations after gaining experience in Centre. This includes members who now work for government departments and other pressure groups such as Make Votes Matter, charities such as the Red Cross and on political consulting. You can see where some of our team members have gone to work on our Alumni network.
