Can you make data tell a story?
We are looking for an analyst who can get to grips with complex issues and produce clear, incisive evidence for decision makers. Thought leadership is one of Green Alliance’s defining activities, initiating debates and bring new perspectives to challenging environmental issues. We do this by exploring issues from original angles, and presenting information in compelling and relevant formats. The analyst will conduct research and interpret data from a range of sources to inform our insights and recommendations to expert commentators and policy makers.
You will work on high profile projects, including those supporting a green economic recovery for the UK following the coronavirus pandemic. Curious and inquiring, you will want to seek out and interrogate the best, most credible evidence to support our narratives. You will have excellent attention to detail, a rigorous approach to problem solving and accuracy, and the ability to work on several projects at once. Your data analysis and synthesis skills might have been developed in another field, but you will have a deep interest in the environment and Green Alliance’s policy themes.
Green Alliance is a charity, independent think tank and advocate, committed to achieving a greener future. We believe that ambitious political leadership is the route to change at the speed and scale necessary. We play a central role in shaping the natural environment, energy and resources policy agendas in the UK and are known for our cross party influence and the clarity of our insights.
The high quality of our work, our experienced team and our collaborative approach have enabled us to develop excellent relationships at the highest levels, with political parties, businesses, NGOs and academia. We are a dedicated team, passionately committed to achieving positive outcomes for the environment. We aim to create a supportive and collaborative culture that allows people to reach their full potential, we aim to provide an inclusive working environment where diversity is valued and everyone is able to thrive.
The closing date for applications is 10am on Monday 27 July and interviews are expected to be held on line in the week commencing 3 August 2020.
