Develop your economics expertise as you shape transport regulation


About us

An independent regulator, the Office of Road and Rail (ORR) protects the interests of users of the transport network, and creates improvements in safety, value and performance. The expertise of our economists is central to this work. They tackle a wide range of economic and policy issues, both to drive efficiencies in today’s national rail services and to shape the network of tomorrow. This means collaborating with colleagues in finance, competition, legal, engineering and operations, as well as wide range of stakeholders including the Department for Transport and Transport Scotland, Network Rail, train operators, local government and passenger and freight groups.

The role

Joining the ORR, you will contribute to the economic regulation of Britain’s national rail network. This means working flexibly across a number of projects to provide support on economic and public policy issues. You might work on developing and adapting regulations for national functions, individual routes or specialised networks such as HS2, Channel Tunnel and Crossrail. You will also have the opportunity to work in areas such as performance incentives, behavioural economics and third-party investment. You can expect to present analysis and recommendations to a wide range of stakeholders.

About you

As a minimum you’ll have a 2:1 undergraduate degree in economics, social sciences or a related discipline. The ability to carry out research, analyse and interpret evidence, and then develop recommendations is key. Any experience of public policy, regulatory work or competition economics would be welcome. Able to build constructive working relationships, you’ll be a strong communicator, who can write and present clearly and persuasively.

Benefits

As a Civil Service employee, you’ll be entitled to a large range of benefits, including:

  • Regular performance and development reviews
  • 25 days of annual leave on entry, increasing to 30 days after 5 years
  • One further day paid privilege entitlement to mark the Queen’s Birthday
  • Flexible working patterns including part- time or time-term working
  • Generous paid maternity and paternity leave
  • Interest-free season ticket and bicycle loans
  • Competitive contributory pension scheme
