The role

We welcome applications from candidates for the following RGP internship and secondment opportunities:

In this context, the RGP Team will focus on how to use AI-based textual information extractions, embedded in the CRG, to build both research datasets and cases for Regulators. In supporting this workstream, you will look specifically at how to provide those in formats for RGP stakeholders with a particular focus on visualization techniques of large datasets. Experience and/or proven knowledge of use and visualization of data as well as use of AI technologies is important for the role.  A background in data science, computer science or detailed knowledge of statistics is a requirement.

In supporting this workstream, you will work with the RGP Head of External Stakeholder Management to create and execute a strategy for communicating about the RGP to these audiences. Experience of effective business communication to industry and governmental audiences is important.
