About The Work Psychologists ​


We are the new vanguard… a collective of passionate, highly experienced business psychologists, business leaders, HR experts, coaches, facilitators, academics, technologists and corporate veterans.

Our backgrounds are diverse but we have come together through a single, shared ambition: to make the world of work better for everyone.


If you are interested in leadership assessment and development, coaching, high performing teams, company culture and the future of work we would love to hear from you.


Job Purpose


The Work Psychologists have an exciting opportunity for two interns to join their growing UK team for three days a week for a fixed term of six months. 


We are looking for self-motivated, insightful, forward-thinking individuals with a genuine passion for leadership psychology. We are a highly entrepreneurial and innovative organisation, always pushing boundaries and co-creating the latest evidence-based solutions to assist our clients’ future leadership challenges.


Your work with us will be varied, offering depth and breadth as you assist on projects working with individuals, teams and organisational cultures with the purpose of making the world of work better for all. You’ll be involved in multiple aspects of the business and will be mentored throughout the process, with the opportunity to lead on certain areas if you have the drive and initiative to do so. This is an opportunity to add real value and have a genuine impact to the business, working with brilliant, compassionate, insightful and inventive colleagues.


You may have just graduated and be keen to get your foot in the door in a competitive and exciting industry. Or you might be looking for an opportunity to transition into the field after some time working elsewhere.

  1. BSc Psychology, Psychotherapy, Organisational Change/Behaviour or Behavioural Economics

  2. Proactive, self-starting and forward thinking – and we’ll need to see this from you early in the application process

  3. Someone who can hold your own, not a shrinking violet

  4. Digitally savvy

  5. Level A and/or B for psychometrics and their application (HOGAN, FIRO B, EI, META, etc)

  6. An interest in coaching and leadership development

  7. Equally comfortable working on your own or as part of a team

  8. Excellent relationship builder. Curious, creative and a divergent thinker; balanced with a strong analytical mind. You’ll thrive on collaboration and execute diligently (coupled with a healthy dose of hedonism).

  9. Excellent stakeholder management, influencing skills and buckets of likeability.

  10. High appreciation of the aesthetics of good quality design (Prada not Primark) 

  11. Business building skills: becoming an ambassador for The Work Psychologists, rolling up your sleeves to get things done and ability to flex as required to support a small office.

  12. Wired for continuous learning and professional development.




What you will be doing:

  • A lot of research: everything we do is evidence-based, so you need to be not only comfortable with research but genuinely keen to dive into the literature around a multitude of topics

  • Able to translate the research into relevant, useful insights for business leaders and CEOs

  • Writing and content creation: drafting blog posts, thought papers and resources for clients

  • Contributing to various assignments both in-house and for our clients

  • 3 days a week, working from home.


You will also have the opportunity to contribute to:

  • Proposals and briefs to win work 

  • Client workshops and interventions

  • Leadership assessments

  • Our supportive and informal yet professional culture.


In return, you’ll get:


  • Career coaching

  • Constant learning and self-development

  • Access to our networks of business psychology professionals from across the industry

  • The chance to get directly involved in client work

  • Experience working alongside senior experienced consultants and psychologists – you will not be doing photocopying!


Next Steps:


Please register your interest by sending a CV and a concise covering email to sophie@theworkpsychologists.com. 


In the covering email, tell us what motivates you about the opportunity. We’d also like you to write a short piece (max 500 words) on one of your favourite psychological concepts and how you would apply this to a leadership or organisational environment. The piece will need to be well-written, persuasive and a demonstration of your ability to research and translate this into digestible language. 


We will be looking at how you express yourself and how well your experience matches what we are looking for. Visit theworkpsychologists.com to find out more about us.
