Jobs at Reform
Two Researcher Vacancies
Reform is an independent, charitable, non-party think tank whose mission is to set out a better way to deliver public services and economic prosperity. Our aim is to produce outstanding research on the core issues of the economy, health, education, and law and order, and on the right balance between government and individual; and to communicate this to the public and to opinion formers in all parties and none, to create a consensus for reform.
We are looking for two public policy researchers to bolster our team. The successful candidates will have a total commitment to Reform's founding principles, with first class intellectual abilities, excellent academic records and inquiring minds. They will be able to demonstrate a good understanding of public policy principles and practice, with knowledge of the workings of Westminster and Whitehall. Ideally they will be both economically literate and have a strong interest in current affairs.
Reform’s work centres around its research and events programme. The successful candidates will have a track record of quantitative and qualitative research techniques. They will work in a busy environment, reacting to a rapidly moving news agenda, while contributing to detailed and in-depth research reports on key issues – reports which set the agenda. They will also play a key role organising and supporting high level sponsored events, writing proposals and ensuring a first rate attendance.
The successful candidates will be exceptionally well organised, good at generating ideas and seeing the big picture, but also happy to muck in with the routine operations of a small but highly productive office, often under considerable pressure.
One role will focus specifically on healthcare and knowledge/interest in this area would be an advantage. The other role will cover a broader range of public policy issues.
Competitive + performance bonus.
The closing date for applications is Monday 3 November 2014.
