Internship

INTERN, NEW YORK and LONDON OFFICES

We welcome applications for summer (June-August), fall/autumn (September-December), and spring (January-May) internships. Our internships serve as a significant professional pipeline, and many past interns have gone on to full-time employment with the firm. While an internship is not an automatic path to a job offer, interns who perform strongly will receive priority consideration for openings that develop during or after their time at Veracity. While we are open to those seeking a career change or who are otherwise unconventional internship applicants, we particularly encourage those who are completing or have recently completed post-graduate and undergraduate study and would be well positioned to transition to full-time roles following their internship.

In general, we seek candidates who are curious by nature, possess a strong work ethic, are excellent writers, and can learn new skills quickly. All of our internships are paid, and we seek to integrate interns into all aspects of the firm as much as possible. Our New York and London offices are currently operating on a hybrid basis, and interns should expect to spend some time in the office to ensure their integration into the firm’s culture and work.

The first week will be devoted to onboarding and training in Veracity’s systems, processes, and products. Subsequent responsibilities may include:

  • Helping to prepare talking points and background research for business development pitches and events
