Policy Adviser

Do you want to be part of ensuring that the UK is equipped to meet its long-term infrastructure needs? Do you enjoy solving complex problems?

If this sounds like a challenge you would enjoy, please apply for this post.​

​The National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) is looking for a Policy Adviser to support the development of the UK’s long term infrastructure strategy. There will be an opportunity to work on projects across energy, transport, water and wastewater, solid waste, flood risk management and digital communications. The Commission is currently developing its workplan after publication of the Second National Infrastructure Assessment and candidates could be working in any one of the above sectors. Candidates are welcome to express a preference of sectors to work on, but will need to be flexible to accommodate the Commission’s workplan.

This is an opportunity to work creatively and rigorously on some of the most pressing issues for UK infrastructure, and independent from government policy, over the long-term, shaping how these sectors will support our society, environment, and economy into the future.

The post holder will have experience of scoping projects, gathering, analysing and interpreting data and insights from a wide variety of internal and external sources and applying this  to inform policy development.

This is an exciting time to work at the Commission as it develops its forward workplan, building on the Second National Infrastructure Assessment.
