The New Zealand Initiative is looking for a new Research Fellow.
The role is Wellington-based. We're looking for a good all-rounder, with strong economic and empirical skills, who'd initially take on a project looking at education but expand more broadly from there.
We want somebody who's got a fire in the belly for good policy. It's not a civil service position: we want someone who, after taking an evidence-based assessment of the world, jumps into the fray to explain how and why policy needs to change. You need to be able to write clearly and quickly for a general audience, as well as to be able to engage with the Wellington wonk community.
These are the the kinds of research reports we produce, to give a sense of the kind of work you'd be doing.
Our 2-year research plan has work streams in localism & local government, education, and inequality, poverty & welfare.
We're non-partisan, evidence-based, and committed to a more free and more prosperous country. Come help out.
