The Education Policy Institute is looking for a motivated, dynamic and outgoing candidate to raise our profile, establish relationships with key partners and fundraise to support our research.

The Director will be an integral part of our senior leadership team and will be responsible for setting our strategic vision to ensure that our work is widely distributed, well-understood and, most importantly, has a real impact on education policy. Working closely with our Research Team, the Director for Communications and External Affairs will also help to identify emerging areas of public interest, translate detailed analysis into media and public friendly narrative and provide bespoke communications advice for each of our reports.

We are a small organisation and this role comes with opportunities to work with the Senior Leadership Team to shape the direction and future of EPI. The successful candidate will be supported by a small team and will report to the Executive Director. Because our independence and political neutrality is crucial to us, there are some restrictions on party political activity for permanent members of staff.

To apply please submit a covering letter and a copy of your CV to by 26th January 2018. For further information please visit or call Natalie Perera on 0207 340 1160
