What do past Interns say about the Internship?
'Working at Theos has been formative, and the experience will go with me for the rest of my working, and personal, life. The work of Theos is subtle and stimulating, the team are incredibly talented as well as person-focused, and the opportunity to support and contribute to Theos’ output – and work in such a team – is invaluable for anyone looking to experience the intersection of public discourse, journalism, and academia. I thoroughly recommend applying, and in any way developing a relationship with this fantastic organisation.'
‘Learning on the ground, discussing issues, exposure to ideas and issues I’d never considered, meeting Theos connections. Gave language and reasoned perspectives to my intuitive feelings about the place of faith in society.'
‘I liked how helpful and supportive the team were in helping me to get the most out of my internship. It helped me to see how many different ways practical elements of Christian Theology are being applied in wider society and made me aware of lots of great initiatives.'
'A chance to write has been excellent. The internship is a good introduction to office life in a pleasant and supportive atmosphere.'
