Changing thinking and changing policy

The International Growth Centre (IGC) aims to promote sustainable growth in developing countries by providing demand-led policy advice based on frontier research. Economic growth is the only route to achieving prosperity and sustained reductions in poverty. Yet as countries face new and distinctive growth challenges, there is an increasing realisation that new thinking and fresh approaches are needed to driving growth. 

The IGC’s world-leading network of researchers works in partnership with developing country governments to undertake high quality research and provides policy advice on economic growth. Based at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and in partnership with the University of Oxford, the IGC has offices in 12 countries in Africa and South Asia and is principally funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID).  

We are now seeking an exceptional Policy Director to lead IGC’s country-level engagement and promote IGC’s policy impact nationally and in global debates. Reporting to the IGC’s Executive Director, s/he is responsible for the effective management of the country teams and promoting new ways of thinking about key growth issues. You will work with some of the world’s top economic growth thinkers in an intellectually challenging, innovative, and collaborative environment. You will bring a hunger for new challenges, a dynamic approach to problem solving, experience of leading on programme and project management in a developing country and an impressive track record of achieving change in the policy environment.

For further details, including a job description, person specification and information on how to apply, please visit https://candidates.perrettlaver.com/vacancies/ quoting reference 4265. Applications will close at 17:00 BST on 11th September.
