you’ll work at the heart of your business area’s analytical and policy teams, and influence policies that have a real impact on the future of the UK

As an Economic Advisor, you’ll work at the heart of your business area’s analytical and policy teams, and influence policies that have a real impact on the future of the UK.

Whichever role you take on, you’ll engage with senior stakeholders across government and external organisations, and enjoy the support of our growing analytical community.

All these Economic Advisor positions call for proven policy expertise, and at least a 2:1 degree with key economics elements or a Master’s in Economics.

Ready to challenge and shape policy thinking, you’ll be a confident communicator – able to influence key stakeholders and put complex issues in simple terms, yet also write highly technical reports including regulatory consultations and business cases.

Equally, your ability to organise effectively, think proactively and focus on delivery will help you work across a range of different priorities.

It’s essential you’re able to meet the key competencies of the Civil Service: managing a quality service; collaborating and partnering; and seeing the big picture. In addition, we’ll look for evidence you can meet the key Government Economic Service competencies, which are application of economic knowledge and effective communication.

You’ll have ample opportunity to develop your skills. Everyone here can take five designated learning and development days a year, and access bitesize courses at the DCMS Academy and online. There are 26.5 days’ leave, plus public holiday – and an excellent pension available from day one.
