Working with and on behalf of 190,000 businesses of all sizes and sectors, the CBI is proactive in speaking to government on the issues and opportunities that will shape that future: engaging and inspiring members; giving them the tools they need to better embrace the positives from the challenges that lie ahead; identifying the actions the government can take to smooth the way; and building the policy position to support the solutions. The CBI is building momentum towards its ultimate goal: ensuring the UK becomes the most dynamic, competitive, and future-focused economy in the world.
The CBI’s Chief Economist is a high-profile role, leading a highly regarded economics team in their engagement with Treasury and the Bank of England and with core foci on economic and tax policy, the transition to a low carbon, sustainable economy and global business leadership. Representing the CBI on public platforms, the role is integral in providing business leaders with advice on the UK economic outlook and global risks. As a member of the CBI’s Executive Committee the role is a senior leader across the CBI with ultimate responsibility for the vision, strategy and performance of the business and the delivery of the Seize the Moment strategy.
Candidates will have a background in economics and experience applying economic analysis to real-world challenges; a strong understanding of UK and international economic issues and policy choices faced by the UK Government; and proven leadership experience, operating at senior management level.
