We are a small but fast-growing startup looking to expand our team. We are looking for a Director of Economics and Data to help support our current projects and clients and help us win new work.

Bradshaw Advisory is a cross between a think tank, economics/data consultancy and a public affairs agency which means we work on a huge variety of projects from Levelling Up Fund and Freeport applications to running the Global Britain Commission and delivering high-impact campaigns for private clients often centred around research reports and new analysis/modelling.

We are looking for quirky people with interesting perspectives and ideas.

A sense of humour is essential. We are not a big soulless corporate – we like personality.
