Overton is a socially conscious startup focused on making government policy more transparent: we help researchers, journalists and the public to see the evidence and influences behind real world guidelines, laws and regulations.
Want to see the research behind national climate change plans, or the influences pushing different COVID policies? Overton is where you go.
Our customers range from UN & EU agencies to think tanks, big charities and dozens of universities. Our primary product is a large, searchable database of government policy that we text mine to pull out topics, links to academic papers, people and more.
The founding team is experienced, friendly and genuinely cares about the space. We’re growing quickly and we want to make sure that we’re building an amazing relationship with our users and are supporting their needs. That’s where you come in…
Alongside the rest of the ‘Engagement and Training’ team you’ll be designing and delivering amazing training sessions and support for our clients:
