The Behavioural Insights Team (BIT) is looking to appoint a Director of Strategy and Implementation, reporting to the Chief Executive of BIT, Dr David Halpern. The Director of Strategy and Implementation will be responsible for implementing BIT’s overall business strategy, and in particular for leading cross-cutting work and coordinating our UK programme of work. This is a key appointment in a uniquely vibrant and rapidly growing organisation, with highly talented and dedicated people at all levels.
Since its original formation in 2010, BIT has roughly doubled every two years, and this pace of growth has shown little sign of slowing. We now have offices in London (Head Office), Manchester, Sydney, New Zealand, Singapore and New York. We work with clients both in the public sector and much more widely to provide core consultancy and evaluation services. We plan to diversify more widely over the coming 18 months to develop a suite of products and services as well as to scale our existing programmes.
The successful candidate will probably have a track record of either running a business or an aspect of business operations in a larger organisation and may come from a consultancy/professional services or a public sector background.
Crucially they will need to be able to respond to the very particular and broad range of challenges presented in this boutique consultancy/advisory business. They will take a primary day to day lead for the UK advisory side of the business, but also work closely with and provide oversight to overseas subsidiaries to ensure the Group business is joined-up.
Applications are now closed
