£53,360 - £59,625

Health and Safety Executive

£53,360 - £59,625

Take the lead on policy projects to make working life in Britain as safe as it can be.

At the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) we believe everyone has the right to come home safe and well from their job. Our mission is to prevent work related death, injury and ill health.

As a key member of our Economic and Social Analysis Team, you will work closely with social researchers, statisticians, epidemiologists, data scientists and experts in Geographic Information Systems. Policy professionals will rely on your economic advice, research and analysis to develop effective strategies and policies across a range of areas, including tackling occupational injury and responding to work-related ill health. You will make a positive difference by exploring all kinds of risks - from emerging technologies like driverless vehicles and cyber threats, to labour market shifts such as zero-hour contracts and the ‘gig’ economy. Crucially, you will also take the lead on cost-benefit analysis of proposed Government interventions and evaluations of existing policy.

To join us, you will need a first or second-class honours degree or postgraduate degree, in which at least 50% of course modules were in economics. Proven professional experience of delivering cost-benefit analysis of public policy proposals is essential. You will bring to the role a track record of delivering challenging technical and strategic research projects, in collaboration with other specialists. Along with a flair for building good working relationships with colleagues and customers, you demonstrate a talent for presenting complex analysis clearly to non-specialists. In this role, you will thrive on applying your knowledge of economics to new practical areas. You will also relish the opportunity to play an active part in developing a new generation of economists.

In addition to the rewarding nature of the role itself, you can look forward to excellent benefits in a working culture that encourages inclusion and diversity. Benefits include a highly competitive Civil Service Pension, flexible working options, and learning and development tailored to your role.

Apply before 11:55 pm on Monday 27th September 2021.
