nergy, Planning and Rural Affairs (EPRA) are offering exciting internship opportunities for university undergraduates, graduates or post graduates to work on different subject areas to help the Welsh Government ensure Brexit is delivered effectively for Wales. These roles provide opportunities to work at the heart of a challenging and fast moving environment which is helping to ensure that the people of Wales get the best deal once the UK leaves the EU.
There will be a wide range of roles, which will link to EPRA policy teams and will enable you to gain practical, paid work experience in Welsh Government with involvement in high profile work around Brexit and its impact for Wales.
Intern roles will require research around subjects, analysis of information, identifying key aspects of that information and submitting recommendations. The work includes producing written drafts of various communications for staff at more senior level to consider. There will be an opportunity for inter-governmental working with the UK Government and devolved administrations to support ERPA’s engagement in negotiations on a variety of policy areas. Intern roles may also have an opportunity to support the Cabinet Secretary (ERPA) and Environment Minister
The work associated with these roles will be fast paced, varied and interesting. You could be posted to any one of the areas covered by the EPRA portfolio such as the Office of the Chief Veterinary Officer, farming, food, fisheries, forestry, waste, water, decarbonisation, animal and plan health or be involved in providing support in developing successor programmes for major EU driven funding programmes including the Common Agriculture Policy (CAP).
Individuals who are successful in their application for these roles will be posted to those areas where they will be able to make the greatest contribution and help them develop new skills and knowledge.
The Welsh Government acknowledges the importance of developing and growing its bilingual workforce, and welcomes applications for any post from candidates who demonstrate their capability to work in both English and Welsh.
