Job Details

Policy Analyst (Energy & Environment)

About Public First
Public First is a specialist consultancy, helping charities, philanthropists, public sector bodies and global brands improve public policy. Based in London, we have worked in more than thirty international markets. We are part think tank, part strategic consultancy, part polling company, and part communications agency.

Energy + Environment
Working in the Energy + Environment Practice, you’ll help to deliver policy, campaigns and impact projects. We have provided quantitative analysis on energy security for a major generator, public opinion insights into young people and green jobs for the Prince’s Trust, and policy and delivery planning on energy transmission in the UK.

Our major current projects include:

  • Running the Warm Homes Commission to develop a delivery plan for clean heat and energy efficiency
  • Understanding how policy can improve business decarbonisation
  • Analysing capital spending requirements to inform Labour’s Green Prosperity Plan

The Role
We are currently looking to recruit a full-time Policy Analyst to work across all of our projects. This is the ideal first or second job for someone who is interested in energy and/or the environment. You may be someone who has recently graduated with a relevant degree or has spent one or two years in a role that requires good research skills.

In this role you would:

  • Provide support on both quantitative and qualitative research.
  • Identify datasets to test possible research questions.
  • Conduct literature reviews on specific policies, programmes and projects.
  • Convey thoughtful analysis of your findings clearly and compellingly.
  • Provide administrative support to ongoing E+E projects.
  • Liaise with clients in a professional and organised manner.

Our ideal candidate is comfortable using Excel and will have good knowledge of data manipulation, and how to find appropriate data sets, and will like to work collaboratively in a team. You don’t need to have a science/technical degree or a qualification related to technology or policy but we really value evidence of strong research skills, the ability to write clearly and succinctly, and an interest in the politics of energy and/or environmental policy.
