Junior Policy Team (JPT)

“No two days are the same and it offers a great opportunity to meet and network with a range of partners and stakeholders.”

Kristina, Junior Policy Team member

Our Junior Policy Team (JPT) works across Wilton Park helping to deliver a programme of strategic dialogues in support of the UK’s foreign policy objectives.

They play a crucial role working on the lifecycle of Wilton Park meetings from identifying and developing initial policy ideas through to preparing, project managing and delivering events. It’s a varied role with regular international travel and exposure to the world of foreign policy, soft power and international diplomacy.

Wilton Park offers the JPT an engaging workspace, enabling them to settle quickly into a professional work environment, develop their professional skills and get hands on policy and programme delivery experience. The roles help support onward career progression, with former JPT colleagues having successfully moved into a range of roles within the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, other Government departments, think tanks, the charitable sector as well as the commercial world.
