Website Overton

Overton is the world’s largest searchable index of policy documents, guidelines, think tank publications and working papers.

About us

Overton is a socially conscious startup focused on making government policy more transparent: we help researchers, journalists and the public to see the evidence and influences behind real world guidelines, laws and regulations.

Want to see the research behind national climate change plans, or the influences pushing different COVID policies? Overton is where you go.

Our customers range from UN & EU agencies to think tanks, big charities and dozens of universities. Our primary product is a large, searchable database of government policy that we text mine to pull out topics, links to academic papers, people and more.

The founding team is experienced, friendly and genuinely cares about the space – we’d love you to join us.

Your new role

We have just launched a brand new product called Overton Engage, which helps universities find ways of engaging with policymakers (like governments and IGOs) and increase the visibility of their research. We are seeking a dedicated and detail-oriented Policy Engagement Administrator to rapidly increase the coverage of our policy engagement opportunities as we start piloting the tool in different countries.

You’ll play a pivotal role in enhancing the data that drives the product, conduct in-depth research to identify new international policy engagement opportunities, helping us add new information to the platform to a high standard, and optimising our data collection processes.

You’ll be studying for or have a qualification in public policy, politics or a closely related field and an interest in the research/policy interface. Prior knowledge of the university impact and engagement space would be a bonus but is not essential.

This will be a full-time internship position starting ASAP and running for 3 months during the summer. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis and will close once the right candidate is found.

We are a small team and mainly collaborate using Slack, video calls and regular all-company meetings to see each other in person.

To apply for this job please visit apply.workable.com.

Other benefits

  • Hybrid and flexible working
  • A supportive, friendly work environment within a company that cares about its staff and its impact on the world (we are accredited by the Living Wage Foundation and the FSB Good Business Charter and we’re net zero)
  • Exposure to the latest innovations in the policy engagement and research impact fields
  • The chance to be involved with developing a brand new product in an entrepreneurial environment – you’ll have a real impact from your first week here
  • Generous annual leave entitlement of 28 days per year excluding bank holidays (equivalent pro rata for fixed term contract)

How to apply

  1. Apply via Workable – you’ll need to provide a CV and a non-generic cover letter that explains why you are right for this role and why it interests you. You’ll also need to complete a short screening test which should take around 10 minutes. We’ll get back to you within a week.
  2. We’ll arrange an initial 15 minute call to discuss the role with you and discuss your application.
  3. We’ll then schedule an interview at a time that suits you – this will consist of a 20 minute practical exercise related to the role and then a 50 minute interview. This can be at our London office or virtually.
  4. We’ll make an offer. We’ll be interviewing a number of candidates so there may be a short delay, but we will try to keep you informed throughout the process.
