Senior Economist - EU Policy
ICF helps its clients to consider the impacts of policy choices on the economy, environment and society. We offer research, analysis and programme management services to policymakers in the European Commission and national governments around Europe. We provide decision-makers with evidence on impacts, advice on how policies are working and analysis of the likely effects of proposed policies. Our work involves technical analysis and modelling.
We are one of the largest providers of policy support services to the European Commission. Our research and analysis informs the design and improvement of policies and programmes for most of the Directorates-General of the European Commission. Our impact assessments have underpinned numerous EU legislative acts.
We have a diverse, multi-discipline, multi-national team that blends subject matters experts with specialists in different analytical tools and research methods. Our communities of practice and internal training programmes support learning and continuous professional development of everyone who works for us.
We are expanding in response to strong demand for our expertise in impact assessment and economic analysis of EU policies. In that context we have a vacancy for an experienced economist with practical experience of EU policy analysis and familiarity with the requirements of the Better Regulation Guidelines.
We anticipate making an appointment at Managing Consultant level, which is typically associated with at least 10 years professional experience, but have some flexibility to accommodate both more and less experienced candidates that fit with our broader requirements. We welcome your application whether you have focused your economic expertise on a particular area of policy, or consider yourself more of a generalist.
