Associate Director, Centre for Economic Justice

£50,471 - £62,347 per annum plus benefits

Permanent - full time (37.5 hours)

The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR), the UK’s leading progressive think tank, is looking to recruit an Associate Director to run the new Centre for Economic Justice at IPPR.

The Centre for Economic Justice, to be launched in January 2019, will be IPPR’s flagship initiative over the coming years. Its aim is to build on the work of the Commission on Economic Justice, which presented a blueprint for a new, fairer and more prosperous economy in September 2018, and which has already had a marked impact on the economic debate. The Centre for Economic Justice is the natural extension of the Commission, which will seek to both broaden and deepen its analysis and proposals.

The Associate Director of the Centre for Economic Justice will be responsible for designing, leading and managing the Centre’s significant programme of research. S/he will be expected to represent the Centre at the highest levels of government, politics, business, academia and the voluntary sector, and the media and will play a crucial role in managing strategic relationships, including fundraising.

The ideal candidate will have an excellent record in public economic policy development in public, private or not-for-profit sector. S/he will combine intellectual flair, innovative thinking and political knowledge with the ability to manage and oversee a wide ranging agenda. Having played a leadership role in an organisation in the private, voluntary or public sector, s/he will have excellent project, budget and people management skills.

This is a vital role as IPPR looks to build on the success of its landmark Commission on Economic Justice, and develop an economic strategy for the UK. There has rarely been a more urgent need for IPPR’s mission: to improve public policy in the present, and to lay the foundations for a more progressive future.

As part of our commitment to flexible working we will consider a range of options for the successful applicant to fill the post. All options can be discussed at interview stage.
