Vacancy | (Senior) Policy Analyst – CAP and Food

We are seeking to employ a skilled (Senior) Policy Analyst to join the IEEP’s CAP & Food team.

IEEP has a strong reputation for expertise on EU agriculture policy, having established its agriculture programme in the 1980s. For decades, IEEP has been closely involved in seeking to improve the environmental focus of the Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) and has been instrumental in major reforms to the CAP such as cross compliance and the ‘greening’. Lately our focus has increasingly included food system sustainability and food policies more broadly. We provide informed analysis and innovative thinking to stimulate debates and policy action, building on our in-depth understanding of these policy areas.

We are looking for a candidate who strives for impact, likes to take initiative and feels comfortable working in a small and dynamic team. The successful candidate will contribute to IEEP’s role as a thought leader in EU agriculture and food policy.

The successful candidate will contribute to IEEP’s work on CAP and Food, leading projects in this area and the staff involved, and will report to the Head of Programme. They will work primarily on the analysis and development of EU policy, but also at international and national level as necessary. The successful candidate will join a cohesive, impact-oriented and supportive team that is committed to the professional development of all of its staff, and where the opportunities for learning and for making a difference are high. Candidates should be able to work in an intellectually challenging and fast-paced environment and meet firm deadlines. The post might require some travel, typically within Europe, but also outside on occasion.
