Internships at TFA

IMG-20110215-00144 The Freedom Association offers Internships, – principally of 3-months’ duration (however shorter-term placements can be arranged), throughout the year.  All age ranges may apply. Internships may take place in either of our two offices, so please specify  which one you would prefer when applying. Our London office is Golden Cross House, just off Trafalgar Square. Our regional office is close to the centre of the elegant town of Cheltenham, Gloucestershire –  half way between Birmingham and Bristol.

Our Internships are unpaid, but, in return, we go out of our way to provide an interesting and enjoyable  work experience for our interns, giving them a high degree of responsibility as part of our small,  friendly team. We will reimburse Zone 1 and 2 travel costs within London and offer a lunch allowance.

Many former interns have gone on to work for not only The Freedom Association itself but other organisations such as the Institute of Economic Affairs and various Members of Parliament. We do our best to recommend those who have completed internships with us to MPs and other political organisations etc. with which we are in close contact.

We welcome applications for internships and may, in addition, be able to provide opportunities for our interns to work with MPs and MEPs etc.

For further information, please e-mail Rory Broomfield.

“I worked for The Freedom Association for three months in 2011. During this time I wrote a wealth of opinion pieces for the website, attended several interesting talks organised by TFA and met many interesting, like-minded individuals. The highlights were attending a talk given by the Ambassador of Georgia and having the opportunity to come up with ideas for a campaign web site. TFA is a friendly and welcoming organisation to work for and open to liberty lovers from across the clichéd left-right divide. I recommend this Internship for those starting out on a career in politics who want a fun, mind-opening introduction to the industry.” – David M. Gibson (Intern at TFA: April – July 2011)
