Are you an experienced analyst, with the ability to lead projects and deliver high-quality analysis and advice? If so, here’s an exciting opportunity to play a key role in delivering independent advice to government on the UK’s long-term infrastructure needs.

We’re looking for someone to join the National Infrastructure Commission’s economics and modelling team. This would involve leading a mix of analytical projects which support the current policy work programme and contribute to the development of the Commission’s methodology and evidence base ahead of the next National Infrastructure Assessment.

As a senior analyst in the team, you will be expected to:

  • Lead analytical projects which form part of our current studies and policy work programme
  • Lead projects which contribute to the development of the Commission’s methodology and evidence base in preparation for the next National Infrastructure Assessment
  • Collaborate closely with policy leads to understand policy problems and ensure that policy recommendations are impartial and led by evidence
  • Develop liaisons and communicate credibly with key partners regarding the work of the Commission.

The successful candidate will have a degree in an analytical subject (eg. economics, statistics, operational research, social research etc). Strong analytical skills alongside an interest in building up expertise on infrastructure issues are essential. As a small analytical team, we focus on working together, sharing ideas and supporting each others’ development.

Our staff typically work across one or more projects at a time which are relevant to their particular skills and interests. We are a small, friendly organisation, which works to its values of being supportive, rigorous and creative.

The Commission has a strong commitment to equality and diversity. Our aim is to be an organisation which is open and accessible, recruiting and retaining diverse, hardworking people who support and develop one another.

Further details are available here. The deadline for applications is Monday 6 January 2020.
