Vacancies at the National Infrastructure Commission
We are recruiting senior policy advisers. The Commission is looking for experienced policy makers to work with us on the future of the UK’s economic infrastructure. The successful candidates will work in multi-disciplinary teams incorporating policy specialists, economists, engineers, consultants and industry secondees, to run robust and broad-ranging policy development programmes and deliver high-quality and evidence-based advice to the Commission. Particular areas of focus for these roles may include cross cutting issues such as technology and/or regional infrastructure, or one or more of the sectors directly in the Commission’s remit.
Working closely with the Commission, you will identify recommendations and prepare reports which are robust and compelling enough to have a direct impact on government policy. These roles are offer a blend of strategy, project management and policy work, and require direct experience of scoping, managing and delivering complex and high profile policy projects. The work will be wide ranging and evidence based, requiring the ability to think strategically and to identify and implement creative approaches to policy making, requiring you to build good working relationships with key Whitehall departments and the relevant infrastructure sectors, whilst protecting the Commission’s independence.
