We have an exciting opportunity for a mid-level or emerging analyst to join the Building and Tenancy Evidence & Insights team at MBIE.

Why work for us?

MBIE’s Evidence and Insights branch develops the evidence base for MBIE’s decision making. We provide trusted information on the impact and effectiveness of government initiatives.  We provide the data, analysis, and insights that help decision-makers do their best work. We support and influence the policy debate and provide direct advice to Government and information to stakeholders and the public. With over 70 staff, we have a broad range of expertise and offer excellent opportunities for development.

The Building and Tenancy team is a multidisciplinary group delivering research, analytics and evaluation, focused primarily on the building system. We are looking for someone who will bring curiosity and new perspectives to the team.

About the role

As a permanent employee within the Building and Tenancy team, you will be engaging with policy and operational teams within MBIE and other parts of government, and with industry stakeholders. You will work also with the building research community, and provide evidence and analysis to a wide range of people who have a stake in the building system. You will be interested in the building system and/or regulatory settings more generally.

We value creative and curious minds, and we will expose you to advanced qualitative and quantitative techniques and challenge your thinking. 

A social science or economics qualification, and the ability to contribute across the range of the team’s work, supporting evaluation projects but also being comfortable with data, would be a strong advantage.

You will:

  • Have a willingness to learn.
  • Enjoy working with policy teams to understand the issues relevant to them and how research might provide relevant insights to them
