Careers
Do you want to help build a more prosperous, just and secure world for all? Join our inclusive and groundbreaking team of independent thinkers.
At Chatham House we seek to answer the questions that are shaping our world: How will artificial intelligence change the way we live? What can be done to prevent violent conflict? And how can technology be used to tackle climate change?
Research is a big part of what we do, but there are many other jobs at Chatham House, from events and project management to IT and communications.
Join our team to collaborate with the world’s best thinkers and make a real impact in international affairs.


You can have a lot of impact here. You feel as though you’re doing something that is taking things in a better direction. Our mission matters.
