We are currently looking for people with relevant experience to join our experienced team and support us in maintaining our high standards for our existing and growing client base.

We operate an agile working policy allowing flexible working hours and location meaning each employee can manage how often and when they are in the office.

  • Experience of policy analysis via a consultancy, government, think thanks, NGOs or private sector

After 6 months you will gain equity in the business via the Employee-Owned Trust which brings tax free profit share and a voice in the future of the company. We offer 5% contributary pension and Accidental death cover.

Our Agile working policy allows you to maximise the work life balance and maximise productivity by managing your own time at home and in the office.

The position is permanent and can be full time or part time. We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. You need to have the right to work in the UK.
