Job Title: Policy Analyst
Working For: Universities UK
The Policy Group within Universities UK is responsible for providing insights and evidence on the critical issues facing UK higher education. We examine the impact of past and current policies and develop future policies to support the strength and health of the UK higher education system. Our programmes of activity shape how higher education affects students, universities and the government. Policy analysts within policy group typically work across a number of different areas to gain a breadth of experience, and are key in undertaking the quantitative and qualitative research that underpin our policy positions. Policy analysts work across different programme teams and take on responsibility for managing specific aspects of programmes and substantive tasks.
A policy analyst will have a high level of quantitative skills, with the ability to communicate complex findings to non-specialists. They will have a strong interest in public policy, excellent communication (including writing) skills and the ability to manage their own workloads to deadlines that reflect a fast-moving policy environment. Familiarity with higher education issues would be an advantage, but is not essential.

Closing Date: 30 October 2018
