Job Title: Research and Policy Director
Working For: Pro Bono Economics

Pro Bono Economics (PBE) enables professional economists from across the private, public and third sectors to volunteer their skills to tackle some of the most pressing issues in society. Working with our network of experienced consultant economists, our volunteers help charities and social enterprises appreciate their economic and social impact and so improve their overall effectiveness. We have worked with over 400 charities across the third sector since our inception in 2009.
We are now embarking on an exciting new phase of our development, by adding a dedicated in-house research and policy function. In doing so, we plan to supplement our charity projects with new ‘macro’ insights into the value and the potential of civil society in the 2020s. Armed with new content, we want to play an enhanced role in helping shape the policy debate in the UK through a programme of public events, media engagement and contact with different layers of government.

We are looking for an experienced and exceptional research and policy professional to help direct the programme. Working directly with the Chief Executive, the director will design, deliver and disseminate their own research content and commission support from external partners. They will also support PBE’s continued expansion in this area by helping to recruit and then manage a new team of research and policy analysts. The director will also have a key role to play in helping build PBE’s networks in the third sector, academia, government and the media.
