IFS is looking for a new Chief Operating Officer who will take responsibility for all the financial and administrative functions of the Institute.
The Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) is the UK's leading independent microeconomic research institute, renowned for its research and impact on wider policy debates. The IFS is established as a not-for-profit organisation. Our goal is to promote effective economic and social policies by understanding better their impact on individuals, families, businesses and the government's finances, and communicating our findings in the public domain via the media, events and peer-reviewed academic journals.
We are now looking for a new Chief Operating Officer who will take responsibility for all the financial and administrative functions of the Institute. In addition to taking direct responsibility for Finance, the COO will lead an experienced and high performing team to provide support in areas including governance, research contracts, facilities management, IT, HR and external relations. A numerate and experienced manager, the successful candidate will be a positive self-starter with a can-do attitude committed to: motivating their team, ensuring the IFS runs smoothly from an operational, financial and administrative point of view, and maintaining excellent links with external stakeholders. The role also serves as Secretary to our Board of Trustees, and plays a key role on our senior team.
A competitive salary is offered for this role reflecting the seniority of this post in a nationally recognised not-for-profit organisation.
