Working For: Institute for Government
Salary: £45,000 - £55,000
Length of Contract: Permanent
The Institute’s profile and demand for its expertise are growing and we are looking to recruit an
experienced economist to lead new projects and provide a rigorous and challenging economic
perspective to existing projects.
We are interested in applications from very bright, enthusiastic economists who have a keen interest in policymaking and improving the functioning of government. Suitable candidates will have an exceptional undergraduate or postgraduate degree in economics and at least three years’ work experience in a relevant role. This might have been in the civil service, a regulator, a policy-focused research institute or thinktank, or a consultancy working closely with government.
Knowledge of and experience working on macroeconomics or the economics of regulation would be beneficial but is not essential.
The IfG’s primary focus is on improving the functioning of government in the UK. However, wherever possible we draw on experience in other countries and identify those recommendations that cross borders. Knowledge of how governments function in other similar countries would be a bonus but not essential.
