At Natural England, we advise the UK Government on the natural environment. We’re here to make sure people and nature can thrive. From advising farmers on sustainable land management, to gathering and analysing environmental data, and promoting health and wellbeing through the great outdoors, we love what we do. Join us and you’ll be part of an inclusive, motivated and ambitious team, committed to achieving results for our environment, for everyone.
Maximise your chances of a successful application to this job by ensuring your CV and skills are a good match.
Our nationwide Economics team aims to ensure the full value of the natural environment is represented in decision-making, improving the environmental economics evidence base and the way it is applied and used. We work across the organisation in a wide variety of areas and sub-specialisms such as health and wellbeing, economic development, spatial planning and protected areas. We’re currently trying to increase our impact in green finance and marine economics, and would particularly welcome applications from environmental economists with experience as these areas. Whatever your economics background, you’ll have the opportunity to contribute to our reputation for providing high-quality analytical advice. We’ll encourage you to apply your technical knowledge, experience and critical thinking to a range of complex and novel questions.
You’ll need a good undergraduate or postgraduate degree in economics (or equivalent experience) and a solid track-record in applied economics. We’ll look to you to produce and commission high-quality analysis, research and decision-support tools, and to influence decision-makers. You must therefore be able to work effectively as part of a team, to build effective working relationships with a wide range of colleagues, partners and stakeholders, and to explain complex economics concepts to non-specialists. The broad nature of these roles means there is significant scope for personal development and building areas of personal interest. We also have a strong training offer.
We welcome and encourage applications from all communities and, wherever possible, we accommodate requests for both full and part-time hours and other flexible working patterns. Everyone at Natural England is supported to develop their skills and capabilities. You can also look forward to great benefits including a Civil Service pension.
If you’re inspired to protect and enhance England’s wildlife and want to work for a leading science-led organisation, please apply.
