Economic Policy Communications Manager

Salary from £35,999 to £43,360 per annum inclusive with potential to progress to £46,617 pa inclusive of London allowance. This is a fixed term appointment for three years, in the first instance.

We are seeking an experienced Economic Policy Communications Manager to keep CEP’s research at the forefront of media, public and policy attention.

This is a challenging post: you will have strong economic policy analytical skills, an understanding of how evidence is used in social science, and experience of writing persuasively and "translating" academic or technical material for a range of non-technical audiences. You will have the confidence to work alongside, encourage and question our researchers in disseminating their economic policy work, as well as possessing an active interest in public policy and how CEP's work can inform it.

The job also entails managing our web content; maintaining good communications with the university, key journalists and policy makers, and funders; running our social media and acting on your analysis of media uptake of our content to improve its reach; and overseeing production of our in-house magazine, CentrePiece. Ability to use a range of web, communications, analytical tools and design software is essential. Proven writing and editing skills in English are a must.

We offer an occupational pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities.

For further information about the post and to apply please click here.

The closing date for receipt of applications is Monday 17 June 2019 (23.59 UK time). Regrettably, we are unable to accept any late applications.

The post starts as soon as possible. Interviews will take place in July.


Research Assistant, Labour Policies for Inclusive Growth

Salary from £30,029 to £34,487 per annum inclusive with potential to progress to £37,050 pa inclusive of London allowance. This is a full time fixed term appointment for 2 years.

You will be required to work on projects for the ERC funded Labour Policies for Inclusive Growth in the Centre for Economic Performance. The topics of research will be the impact of technology, immigration and imperfect competition on the labour market.

A first or upper second class undergraduate degree in Economics or other quantitative discipline to be completed by post start date is essential, as is experience of data work requiring great accuracy and attention to detail.

You must have ability to identify appropriate methods of economic investigation; ability to interpret and analyse patterns or trends in data and to think through economic problems analytically; and ability to perform literature reviews. You must have ability to work independently without close supervision as well as excellent written and verbal communication skills.

The post will commence as soon as possible. You should apply with a CV, cover letter as well one relevant or sample research paper.

The CEP offers an outstanding environment in which to carry out research. Please visit CEP's website for further information about the Centre.

We offer an occupational pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities.

The Centre for Economic Performance invites postgraduate students to apply for Occasional Research Assistantships

Occasional Research Assistants are offered facilities and full membership of the centre and an hourly rate of pay (currently around £15 to £17 an hour) to provide on average a day or more's research assistance a week. Working on centre projects usually provides students with material, data etc for their PhD and helps them define a thesis topic more quickly. In some cases we will offer places to associate scholars who will not carry out research assistance but whose own research is well advanced and can contribute to the Centre's programme of work.
