The Economic Change Unit works to accelerate the transition to a fair, sustainable and resilient economy

The Economic Change Unit is seeking an Economic Policy & Programme Lead to help drive forward our work accelerating the transition to a fair, sustainable and resilient economy.

Do you hold an undergraduate degree in economics or a subject with a major economics component? Do you have a ‘can do’ mindset, a highly organised and collaborative approach, and a passionate interest in economic justice and ‘new economy’ ideas and proposals? If so, this role is for you.

Working closely with the Head of Public Affairs & Influencing and staff in ECU’s movement partners, you will:

  • Help with political intelligence-gathering, media monitoring, and ongoing analysis of political and economic policy developments and debates.
  • Take responsibility for coordinating one or more of ECU’s programmes, supporting strategy development and driving forward project delivery, including building and managing relationships with senior stakeholders in politics, policy-making, civil society and the media.
  • Edit and help disseminate ECU’s weekly newsletter of economic news and analysis and our New Economy Brief website.

This is a really exciting time to join a relatively new organisation occupying a key role in the new economy movement as we set up our team and embark on a new strategy.

You will be able to demonstrate the ability to get up to speed quickly on new subject areas, strong interpersonal, written and communication skills, and some prior experience of working in a professional organisation.

We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, and are keen to particularly encourage applications from the following groups who are currently underrepresented in our sector: women, working class people, and black people and people of colour.

If you think you could succeed in the role but are unsure whether you meet the role requirements please get in touch for an informal chat.

To apply for this job please visit www.econchange.org.

Other benefits

ECU operates an employee pension scheme and will match your contributions to this scheme up to 7.5% of your salary.

Our holiday allowance is 25 days per year, plus the period between Christmas and New Year.

We are in the process of introducing a blended working policy. You will be required to work from ECU’s office in London at least two days per week, and be available to attend physical meetings in London as required to effectively perform the role.
