Common Wealth aims to be an inclusive workplace with a diverse body of staff. We are working to break with the traditional think tank sector, in which people from certain backgrounds are underrepresented. We know we have some way to go in this and are therefore keen to receive applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic people; women; neurodivergent people; disabled people; people who identify as LGBT+; people with experience of mental health problems; and people who identify as working class or have done so in the past.

Previous think tank experience is not required. We redact name and email address from applications prior to first sift. 

If you are disabled and have the essential skills and experience to do the job, we will invite you to an interview and adjust the interview process as needed. If you need information in a different format, please let us know.

We will make use of positive action to select between candidates of equal merit as a way to address underrepresentation in our workforce.

If you have any questions about the role, please feel free to contact us.

With a fantastic team, a track record of impact, and new transatlantic partnerships, it is an exciting time to join Common Wealth — and we’re excited to hear from you.
