Vacancies at the Royal Economic Society


Following the governance changes agreed at the Society’s AGM last month, we are now inviting applications for the following roles:

•    Chair-of-Trustees (closing date 12 July)

•    Trustee (closing date 5 July) – the board is particularly keen to receive applications from early career economists (in the first 5 years of their career following completion of their studies), and economists with experience working in the public sector.

Additionally, the Society is recruiting for a new Chair of Publications committee (closing date 12 July) and for a Conference-Secretary (1) (closing date 25 June). This is to replace Imran Rasul and Michael McMahon respectively, whose terms both end later this year.

The Society is also seeking a Campaign Manager for Discover Economics (closing date 21 June). The successful applicant will lead on the campaign’s work, including on delivering the student ambassador programme, developing stakeholder networks, identifying and applying for funding and developing a communications strategy.

Information for each role, including job descriptions, how to apply and where to direct enquires can be found here.
