Rolling basis


We are seeking an intern with a solid understanding of the regulatory and legal framework for chemical pollution including so-called ‘forever chemicals’ such as PFAS. 

We have run a successful internship and externship programme since 2020 through which we have benefitted from the expertise of postgraduate students who have been able to enhance our work on specific themes so there is precedence to have real impact at the firm regarding how we approach the domain.

Work will be paid and there is the possibility of help with academic funding and full-time roles being offered to exceptional candidates.
