As Senior Economist, you'll ensure that the organisation maintains its high-level influence and continues to contribute to evidence-based policy making. As such, you'll be undertaking high-quality research and analysis, primarily focusing on the impact that an ageing population has on society. You will also be using your research and analysis skills to test current government policy and practice, making use of your advantage of economic theory and practice to influence your research.
