The New Economics Foundation is a unique and wonderful place to work, and our insights, analysis and innovation have never been more important than they are today. The COVID pandemic has exposed inequalities and flaws in the economy, and has drawn to wider attention the persistent relationship in our society between inequality and ethnicity.
But it has also created the conditions and public appetite for new economic ideas to gain traction. NEF’s fundamental missions – that we should all have the basics for a decent quality of life, we should protect our environment and we should have more equal power in the economy – increasingly resonate with public opinion. We have made a number of important contributions to Treasury and Mayoral policy development in the past 12 months, and we fully expect this increased influence to continue.
This role offers the chance for a highly skilled and widely experienced organisational leader to make a once-in-a-career difference to the future of our society, and you will be a lynchpin of advancing our mission.
I look forward to meeting you.
We are a profoundly optimistic group of colleagues – albeit clear-eyed about challenges, and restless for change – who hold collectively high expectations of one another, and whose shared efforts are directed towards the better world that we believe to be achievable.
