How we recruit
02.12.2012

Jobs

We recruit periodically to specific positions - keep an eye on the blog or Twitter for details. We do not accept speculative applications.

Internships

We are keen to encourage those who are interested in careers in consultancy.

We offer internship opportunities at our London, Edinburgh and Shanghai offices. Providing support and supervision, we ensure that our interns have a positive and inspiring experience, as well as developing professional skills and an understanding of our profession.

We offer three types of internship:

Placements for Further and Higher Education Students

We offer placements of six to 12 weeks, which students undertake as part of a further or higher education course. This placement must be recognised by the university as a part of the degree course, which typically means that universities will provide you with an Internship Host Agreement and/or that students receive course credits for their placement.

Students from F&HE institutions in and outside the UK can apply; however, students from institutions outside the UK must be EU nationals.

BOP accepts speculative applications for student placements for all three offices, however please note that for a placement in Shanghai, we can only accept applications from graduates who are fluent in both English and Mandarin (native speaker or those holding HSK6).

If you would like to apply, please email our internship coordinator, Joshua Dedman, including:

* Your CV (not more than two sides of A4)

* A short covering letter, telling us why you are interested in a placement here and any relevant past experience that you would like to highlight (not more than one side of A4)

We are keen to encourage applications from all backgrounds, so add any other requirements to your application and we will consider them.

We reimburse student placements with £10 per day to contribute towards lunch and daily commuting expenses.

Work placements for students of compulsory school age

Each year, we host two pupils through the Social Mobility Foundation’s (SMF) Aspiring Professionals Programme for one to two weeks.

Paid internships

We very occasionally offers paid internships of up to six months, as entry-level training positions.

Any paid internships will be advertised through BOP’s blog and Twitter accounts, free websites, arts job boards and relevant organisations, when opportunities arise.

Interns must be eligible to work in the UK and will be paid the Living Wage. Positions will be entry-level training positions.

We do not accept speculative applications for paid internships.
