Do you have financial analysis experience and are looking for a new opportunity in a high-profile role? If so, we'd love to hear from you!
The Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) was established by the Chancellor in May 2010 to provide independent assessments of the economy, public finances, and fiscal sustainability. We provide independent forecasts of the economy and public finances to inform the Government's fiscal policy decisions, examine the impact of the Government's policy decisions on the public finances, and assess the prospects for achieving the Government's fiscal targets and welfare cap.
We are recruiting for a senior fiscal analyst to lead on the OBR’s devolved work programme and to support the scrutiny and certification of the Government’s costings of new policy measures. This high-profile post can be moulded to suit the skills and interests of the successful candidate.
This role can be moulded to suit the successful candidate, but the core responsibilities are likely to include:
Our ideal candidate will have an economics, statistics or other quantitative analysis qualification (undergraduate degree or above) or demonstrable proof of skills acquired in post. Additionally, we'd love strong stakeholder management skills, the ability to analyse and interpret data and explain your findings in an accessible manner, as well as the ability to work flexibly across several competing projects, and to deliver high-quality work to deadline.
A role here provides a great opportunity to develop your ability to communicate your insights concisely to non-experts – for instance, by authoring sections of published reports.
We encourage applications from candidates who may be concerned they have less experience in some of the desired criteria, and recognise that gaps can be developed on-the-job and with training, which is available.
This post is available on a full time, part time or job share basis, and flexible working hours can be accommodated.
The working hours of this post are 42 per week (including meal breaks of 1 hour a day) unless you have a legacy agreement as an existing Civil Servant.
A range of active staff networks, based around interests (e.g. analysts, music society, sports and social club) and diversity (e.g. women in the Treasury, ethnic minority network, LGBT network, faith and belief network).
Our recruitment process is underpinned by the principle of recruitment based on fair and open competition with decisions made on the basis of merit, as outlined in the Civil Service Commissioners’ Recruitment Principles. If you feel your application has not been treated in accordance with these principles and you wish to make a complaint, you should in the first instance contact HMT by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are not satisfied with the response you receive, you can contact the Civil Service Commission, which regulates all Civil Service recruitment.
Individuals appointed to the OBR will be subject to National Security Vetting. To allow for meaningful checks to be carried out applicants will normally need to have lived in the UK for at least 3 out of the past 5 years. A lack of UK residency in itself is not always a bar to security clearance but the Department will need to consider eligibility on a case by case basis using all information that can be obtained following a successful application.
