They have a diverse client base from a range of industries, including construction, retail, finance, professional services, infrastructure, the public sector and third sector organisations.

  • Research and develop robust social, environmental and economic metrics and valuations for use in client projects and the Group's software and tools.
  • Stay close to the key government/industry thinking and policies and help with thought leadership and internal/external communications.
  • Work closely with the development team and others to realise projects which intersect with consultancy and support the embedding of social value across the Group.
  • Help develop and evolve our team to stay at the cutting edge of social value.


  • The post holder may be required to carry out other duties that are reasonable to be considered as within the scope and purpose of the job and aptitudes of the job holder.
  • This job description reflects the current requirements of the post. As duties and responsibilities change and develop due to changes in organisational and other circumstances, so the actual duties and responsibilities will vary from the particulars of this job description.

  • Excellent analytical skills and a 'quant' mindset, with a strong attention to detail.
  • Excellent writing, communication and presentational skills.
  • An ability to adapt effectively to unfamiliar situations and challenges.
