Are you looking for a new role in a high-profile and fast-paced environment, working within a dynamic team?

It’s an exciting time to join us!

We are a friendly and high-profile team sitting at the heart of economics and finance issues in the Treasury, ensuring a lot of ministerial interest. While working in a fast-paced policy environment, we support a diverse range of working patterns and styles. We value a broad range of experiences within the team.

You will work independently to handle the entire portfolio of BEIS spending; reacting rapidly to emerging, often high-profile issues; and providing advice to the Chancellor, Chief Secretary and senior Treasury officials on key spending issues.

Key accountabilities of the role will include:

  • Advising on and leading analysis for BEIS’s settlement at Spending Review – building detailed understanding of the budgets and spending bids, supporting Ministers in decision making and seeking out opportunities for a more efficient use of resources.
  • Leading on BEIS spending control – Owning more than £30 billion of annual public capital, resource and admin expenditure, interpreting and challenging information on spending and risk
  • Line management of one policy adviser – supporting them to deliver high-quality work and providing them with effective mentoring to aid their development.

Building and maintaining positive relationships with partners is a key feature of this role, as is being able to make decisions using a range of evidence and coordinating a team to deliver to deadlines.


  • 25 days’ annual leave (rising to 30 after 5 years), plus 8 public holidays and the Queen’s birthday (unless you have a legacy arrangement as an existing Civil Servant)
  • Flexible working patterns (part-time, job-share, condensed hours)
  • Access to a generous Defined Benefit pension scheme with employer contributions.
  • Onsite restaurant and coffee bar. The London office also offers a gym, showers and prayer room
  • Access to a cycle-to-work salary sacrifice scheme, season ticket advances and payroll giving
  • Access to a retail discounts and cashback site
  • A Rental Deposit Advance Scheme to help meet the total costs of deposits for privately rented homes
  • A range of active staff networks, based around interests (e.g. analysts, music society, sports and social club) and diversity (e.g. women in the Treasury, ethnic minority network, LGBT* network, faith and belief network)
