Senior Economist

£40k – £42k p.a.

Economic theory and practice has never been more important in our society. The challenges we face – from climate change to deep-seated poverty and inequality – are huge. They simply cannot be addressed without rigorous and radical new thinking in economics, which draws upon the resources of orthodox and heterodox approaches, and also learns from other disciplines.

The successful candidate for this exciting position will be responsible for taking forward nef’s (the new economics foundation) ambitious project on the macroeconomics of sustainability, combining modelling work with the establishment of a network of like-minded practitioners, within the UK and beyond. The Senior Economist will build and integrate technical expertise within nef, developing and overseeing our work on economics and contributing to projects across all our programme areas.

You will have a deep understanding of economic theory and practice, experience as a practicing economist, excellent quantitative and analytical skills, and a network of contacts that you can draw upon.

A commitment to our values is essential.
