Economist - open to flexibility

Here in the Greater London Authority (GLA), GLA Economics’ analysis and advice informs many of the investment decisions we make.  The GLA requires high quality economic analysis and advice to ensure that the strategies we develop and the projects we deliver are based on sound evidence.  GLA Economics - part of the GLA’s Intelligence Unit - is also an information resource for anyone with an interest in London’s economy, including the capital’s academics, commentators and decision makers.

Bring your knowledge and passion for economics together with your ambition to maintain London’s global standing and you’ll make GLA Economics the first port of call for reliable data and analysis on London’s economy.

The information and data you’ll work with is often complex.  However, with your clear, analytical approach, you’ll provide high level commentary with ease – communicating complicated ideas in straightforward, accessible ways to suit any audience.

We currently have a fixed term Economist role available. The role is focused on supporting GLA teams in the economic appraisal of their spending plans, as well as the evaluation of their policies/programmes; it is likely that the role will also provide the opportunity to work on more general economic policy analysis. The work is likely to involve planning, and sometimes leading, projects and initiatives – ensuring they’re completed to deadline.

London's diversity is its biggest asset and we strive to ensure our workforce reflects London's diversity at all levels. We welcome applications from everyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith or disability.

We are committed to being an inclusive employer and we are happy to consider flexible working arrangements. We would welcome applications from candidates who are seeking part time work as this role is open to job share. We will also consider reduced hours arrangements –(minumum 32 hours per week).

In addition to a good salary package, we offer an attractive range of benefits including 30 days’ annual leave, interest free season ticket loan, interest free bicycle loan, childcare voucher scheme and a career average pension scheme.
