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? Do you have experience leading on projects and managing people at all levels?

The National Infrastructure Commission is looking for a Senior Technical Adviser specialising in water, wastewater, floods or waste to provide expert advice to ensure policy development in this challenging and innovative environment is underpinned by a clear understanding of the technical opportunities and challenges.

The nature of this works means that analytical skills, such as a background in economics or statistics, would be extremely useful. This is an opportunity to work creatively and rigorously on some of the most pressing issues for UK infrastructure, and outside the constraints of current government policy, over the long-term, shaping how water and waste management will support our society and economy into the future. This role will provide a critical input into how we consider and advance these issues in the second National Infrastructure Assessment.

Deadline for applications is Wednesday 10 March 2021.
