Job Title: Policy and Operations Analyst
Working For: Policy in Practice
Our mission is to communicate policy in a clear, simple, actionable way. We empower our clients to help people within their communities, inspire positive change and make the best use of limited public funds.
We are a team of professionals with extensive knowledge of the welfare system who are passionate about making social policy work. We help over 80 local authorities use their household level data to identify vulnerable households, target support and track their interventions. Our benefit calculator engages over 10,000 people each day. We identify the actions people can take to increase their income, lower their costs and build resilience.
We are looking for an impact-oriented analyst with strong quantitative research skills to help us deliver client projects. You must be passionate about improving how public services are delivered, and keen to develop a high level of policy knowledge.
Practical frontline experience, coding skills or experience in public policy are highly desirable. There is space to learn these skills on the job. Previously successful Junior Policy and Operations Analysts include sharp-minded and hardworking graduates with the drive to have an impact on the frontline.
The ideal candidate will demonstrate a keen interest in social policy and be passionate about making change happen from central government policy to front line operations. They will be looking to develop their quantitative analytic skills from a very strong foundation up to an expert level. They should have excellent people-skills, and an ability to influence and build relationships quickly.
Your main responsibilities will be to ensure that we deliver excellent services to our clients and develop our analytics service to have a tangible and positive impact on people.
You will be supporting the director, head of policy and policy analysts in their roles, as well as undertaking research of your own. Responsibilities may develop and change rapidly, so you will learn about each area that Policy in Practice works in at pace.
