We welcome diversity and would love applicants from a broad range of backgrounds.

To be successful, you will bring:

  • Interest in and passion for macroeconomic policy. Formal training in economics or experience providing macroeconomic policy advice is highly desirable.
  • Experience in bringing together clear policy advice on complex topics under high levels of uncertainty
  • The ability to coach other team members through difficult policy and analytical questions to support them to find their own solutions
  • A collaborative approach and the ability to work with closely with both specialist and non-specialist colleagues
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills, and the ability to communicate complex issues and concepts clearly and succinctly
