Economic Policy Communications Manager

Salary From £35,999 to £43,360 per annum inclusive with potential to progress to £46,617 pa inclusive of London allowance

This is a fixed term appointment for three years, in the first instance

 

LSE’s Centre for Economic Performance (CEP), one of Europe’s leading economic research centres, is seeking an experienced Economic Policy Communications Manager to keep CEP’s research at the forefront of media, public and policy attention.

 

This is a challenging post: you will have strong economic policy analytical skills, an understanding of how evidence is used in social science, and experience of writing persuasively and “translating” academic or technical material for a range of non-technical audiences. You will have the confidence to work alongside, encourage and question our researchers in disseminating their economic policy work, as well as possessing an active interest in public policy and how CEP’s work can inform it.

 

The job also entails managing our web content; maintaining good communications with the university, key journalists and policy makers, and funders; running our social media and acting on your analysis of media uptake of our content to improve its reach; and overseeing production of our in-house magazine, CentrePiece. Ability to use a range of web, communications, analytical tools and design software is essential. Proven writing and editing skills in English are a must.

We offer an occupational pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities.

The post starts as soon as possible. Interviews will take place in July.   Please send a CV and an accompanying letter detailing how your experience fulfils the requirements of the post.
