You don’t need to:

We would love to hear from you.

The opportunity:

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.
  • Supporting the development and implementation of TBEN's Universities Ambassador Programme, which aims to engage with universities and promote the network among students and academics.
  • 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 Company:

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.

  • Proven experience in programme coordination, project management, volunteer management or a similar role, preferably within a non-profit or community-oriented organisation - essential
  • Understanding of and passion for promoting diversity and inclusion, particularly in economics and related fields - essential
