Learning and Work Institute (L&W) is an independent policy, research and development organisation dedicated to promoting lifelong learning, full employment and inclusion.

We are focused on the big questions. What impact will coronavirus have on the labour market and how should policy respond? How do we help more people to develop their skills in a changing job market?

The role of Senior Economist is a key one within L&W, with responsibility for leading quantitative analyses in the fields of employment, labour markets, education and skills.

We are looking for someone who would bring an in-depth understanding of labour market economics, advanced econometric skills, a successful track record of designing and delivering projects, and an interest in the policy context for learning, skills and employment.

In return, you will have the opportunity to work with renowned experts, to design and lead high quality impact evaluations, helping us generate evidence on what works in employment and skills to deliver better outcomes.

L&W is a Silver Investor in People award holder, committed to equal opportunities and staff development including support for formal qualifications when applicable.

L&W prides itself on being a supportive and flexible employer. We recognise the importance of work-life balance for our staff and will consider flexible working arrangements.

We are committed to equality and diversity and encourage applications from all under-represented groups in society.
