  • London
  • R3 Internships
  • Internship

R3 is an enterprise blockchain software firm working with a broad ecosystem of more than 300 members and partners across multiple industries from both the private and public sectors to develop on Corda, our open-source blockchain platform, and Corda Enterprise, a commercial version for enterprise usage.
Our global team of over 190 professionals in 13 countries is supported by over 2,000 technology, financial, and legal experts drawn from our global member base.
Our Corda platform is already being used in industries from financial services to healthcare, shipping, insurance and more. It records, manages, executes institutions’ financial agreements in perfect synchrony with their peers, creating a world of frictionless commerce.
When we say “regulatory affairs,” we are referring to interactions with or relating to the public sector.  That includes government departments, regulatory agencies (e.g., financial regulators, conduct authorities), and policy makers.  We’re excited about how Corda can change the world and we are looking for an intern who can spend the summer supporting us in both regulatory affairs and GovTech. 
The objectives of R3’s Regulatory Affairs team are:
·       To proactively engage with regulators around the world to establish R3 as a credible source of expertise and honest input on policy matters
·       To prevent regulatory impediments to the use of Corda and widespread adoption of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT)
The objective of R3’s GovTech strategy is to identify and pursue opportunities to deploy R3’s Corda platform in the public sector. 
Joining the Regulatory Affairs Team you get involved in a range of different policy and regulatory areas and support the team in maintaining relationships with high profile stakeholders across multiple regulators in the UK and globally. You will also work to develop relationships with partners who service the public sector and cultivate blockchain opportunities in government.  


  • Track R3’s relationships with regulators and update internal tracking spreadsheet(s) regularly
  • Surface GovTech opportunities by monitoring for Request for Proposals (RFPs) and identifying potential partners for R3 to work within the public sector
  • Assist with preparing materials for external distribution, including summaries of reports, blogs on relevant topics, and providing monthly updates to R3’s internal and external stakeholders
  • There will also be opportunities to do public facing work- attending meetings with regulators such as the Bank of England and the Financial Conduct Authority

Education & Experience:

  • Be studying Political Science, Public Policy, International Relations or similar
  • Have an interest in the UK political process
  • Have excellent skills in both written and verbal communication
  • Have strong time-management skills with the ability to prioritise the team’s work and their own, displaying a degree of flexibility as and when priorities change
  • Knowledge of the financial services and/or financial technology (FinTech) space
  • Be able to work independently and without supervision
  • Have a desire to learn about regulatory affairs and the workings of governments around the world, from both a policy perspective and a government procurement process
  • The ability to summarize complex issues clearly and concisely for dissemination to a non-technical audience
  • Some experience and/or exposure in a policy related role would be advantageous
