JOB ROLE: Senior Research Analyst

Salary: c.£45 - 55k

The Centre for Progressive Policy (CPP) is a new economics think tank, committed to making inclusive growth a reality.

The Centre believes that a new approach to economic growth is needed, emphasising the role of investment in social infrastructure – such as health and social care, education and skills – and the importance of place. By working with national and local partners, CPP aims to devise effective, innovative and pragmatic solutions to drive productivity and shared prosperity across the UK.

Since going live in March 2018, the Centre has launched two major programmes of work on skills and health and social care. Rigorous, data-driven analysis is at the heart of our research and engagement, enabling us to develop deliverable policy ideas that shape the debate and pave the way for system change.

The Centre is looking for up to two senior research analysts to take a leading role in delivering CPP’s major research projects – particularly on the role of social infrastructure (e.g. mental, physical and public health, social care, education and skills, employment support services) and public service investment and reform in driving inclusive growth.

  • Track record of creative and influential public policy development
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Deep understanding of how think tank research and engagement can create system change
