We would love to hear from you.
Despite there being many Black students who take economics into further education, economics is far from diverse. From senior positions at banks, to board memberships in think-tanks, Black people are under-represented across the field. This lack of diversity can bring about implications pertinent to Black minority groups. From narrow perspectives to a lack of attention to minority interests; this lack of diversity can feed into decision making in industry, economic research and policy decisions.
Additionally, this lack of visibility (coupled with there being little to no initiatives at higher levels to address this), has meant that there exists no official platform to encourage and support aspiring/current Black professionals in economics and related fields.
We are looking for someone to support the programme coordination for The Black Economist Network (TBEN) and you will get stuck in from day one doing:
- Coordinating and managing the day-to-day activities of TBEN, including organising events, workshops, and webinars to foster networking, knowledge sharing, and community building.

- Collaborating with stakeholders, including universities, corporate partners, and other organisations, to establish strategic partnerships and drive joint initiatives to promote diversity within economics and related fields.
- Assisting in the planning, development, and execution of TBEN's communication strategy, including managing social media accounts, website content, newsletters, and promotional materials.
- Liaising with TBEN members, responding to enquiries, providing support, and ensuring a high level of member engagement and satisfaction.
- Coordinating and overseeing various projects, ensuring adherence to timelines, budgets, and quality standards.
- Collecting and analysing data to measure the impact of TBEN's activities and reporting on key performance indicators.
- Contributing to the continuous improvement of TBEN's processes, operations, and initiatives.
- Be willing to assist with other operational duties as and when required.
The Black Economists Network (TBEN) is an organisation dedicated to providing a platform through which professionals and students of Black African and Caribbean descent in economics can connect, collaborate, share ideas and support each other. We also seek to challenge the lack of diversity within economics related fields by bringing together and raising the profile of black people in economics by working alongside other organisations on their diversity strategies.
If you have these essentials, we would love to hear from you:

About the Horizon Europe Project: ‘KitNewCare’
The Horizon Europe initiative is the EU’s key funding programme for innovation and research to tackle climate change and achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. CSH is part of a consortium of organisations across the UK and EU that has been funded by Horizon Europe to develop and disseminate a model for sustainable healthcare. The ‘KitNewCare’ project will focus on the medical specialty of kidney care, due to its large disease burden (e.g. 10% of Europeans have impaired kidney function severe enough to impact their health status) and its significant resource footprint, particularly in the use of dialysis in clinical settings. The main pilot sites are in Poland, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.
The project comprises several inter-related work packages, with different organisations leading or contributing to each package. These include: developing the knowledge base of sustainability trends, costs, hotspots and solutions across the EU; piloting organisational and workflow optimisations and technological innovations to improve sustainability in kidney care; and upscaling, disseminating and implementing solutions identified through the development of guidance, toolkits and training resources.
About the role
The Project Manager for Workforce Training in Sustainable Kidney Care will be responsible for the successful delivery of Work Package 6 (Communication, Dissemination and Exploitation), which focuses on workforce training and local capacity building in sustainable kidney care. This will involve monitoring and managing the relevant milestones, deliverables and risk registers.
The Project Manager will link with part-time local project coordinators in 4 pilot clinical sites (in Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Poland), to support them with setting up local implementation teams to implement and evaluate changes. The role will involve coordinating with other Work Packages including the development of best practice guidance and benchmarking tools (WP5), metrics for evaluating the impact of changes (WP2) and organisational and workflow optimisations (WP3).
- Project management of Work Package 6 (Communication, Dissemination and Exploitation) of the Horizon Europe project on sustainable kidney care (KitNewCare).

“At Voice 21, there is a strong culture of sharing expertise and this ensures that your voice is valued and ideas heard, no matter your role.

The very purposefully planned in-person meetings help these relationships to grow and flourish, as does the high level of collaboration in teams.”
