About the Centre

The Centre for Progressive Policy is a new public policy think tank, which will launch formally in early 2018. The Centre believes that, within the framework of a market economy, there is a vital role for government to promote economic efficiency, individual liberty and social justice. The Centre will help to identify key policies to promote these objectives, and will seek to influence policy makers and support stakeholders to implement them.

The Centre is looking to hire a number of senior analysts with strong quantitative and qualitative skills to build up and lead a series of new research areas. In addition, the Centre is looking to hire data and economic analysts to support this ambitious new research programme.

The Centre for Progressive Policy is a new start up which builds on the initial success of the Centre for Progressive Capitalism. It offers a rare and exciting opportunity to join a new organisation with considerable growth potential, and to help shape its direction and culture from the start.
