The Health Foundation is an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK.   The Health Foundation’s Research and Economic Analysis for the Long term (REAL) Centre was set up in 2019 to improve the quality of strategic decisions about the health and care system – including on funding, on service priorities and workforce – so that they are based on good evidence and consideration about their long-term impact.  

Since its formal launch in autumn 2020 the REAL Centre has published several significant reports and analysis and achieved considerable influence. It has published two major reports: the Bigger Picture – an analysis of NHS activity since 2000, and a new set of health and social care funding projections to inform decisions in the 2021 Spending Review. In addition, it has also published analyses of workforce issues, of the impact of the pandemic on NHS services and health, and on social care reform. Its analysis is used by decision makers and is often quoted in the media.

The senior economist will join the REAL Centre’s senior management team and provide expert leadership to a team of economists working on research and analysis relating to social care and supply-side issues (particularly workforce and funding).  By applying their knowledge of the health and care system and/or government policy the successful candidate will design and deliver a programme of policy relevant and impactful research.  This is a leadership role, and the senior economist will provide management a talented and enthusiastic team of economists, supporting them to further develop their skills and capabilities.

This is a unique opportunity for an experienced economist / analyst who wants to use their expert quantitative research and analysis skills to influence decision making and policy across the health and care system.  We are looking for an individual with outstanding communication skills, able to promote findings from their research through written publications, media and stakeholder engagement.
