NPC is the leading, independent consultancy and think tank for the UK social sector, working with charities, philanthropic funders and policymakers to achieve the greatest possible social impact for the people, places and causes that need it.
We are recruiting a senior consultant to join our busy and dynamic team which focuses on supporting organisations to maximise their social impact.

About the role
You will work with a team of experienced consultants to deliver consulting projects for charities and funders.

NPC works across the UK voluntary sector, so you will get to work on a wide variety of topic areas and organisations, on both large and small projects. You would also have chances to contribute to NPC’s wider thinking, profile and engagement in the sector.
The ideal candidate will have a relevant experience in a consulting or research role in professional services, public policy or the third sector. You also have good research and analysis skills and are able to work flexibly, independently and on multiple projects at once.
Experience of managing research or consultancy projects is essential. Other experience that would be an advantage include managing digital projects, impact investing, user voice or data.
We are based in London with some flexibility around remote working.
The salary is £35,000–£40,000 per annum plus benefits. NPC benefits include 25 days’ annual leave, paid volunteering leave, and cycle to work loans. You can read about the full range of NPC benefits offers here.
