Positive Money is a think tank and campaigning organisation working to reimagine our money and banking system for the wellbeing of people, communities and the planet. We have offices in London, Brussels and the US, and are part of a growing movement for economic systems change. Our mission is to reform money and banking in order to build a fair, democratic and sustainable economy.
We are recruiting for a Senior Researcher to help us deliver an ambitious research agenda and raise awareness of our broken financial system and help transform it. This is an exciting opportunity for a researcher passionate about the new economy movement, able to oversee and deliver on multiple projects simultaneously. We’re seeking someone with a commitment to our values, including dismantling oppression, and experience working on research programmes at a senior level.
We are committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility and aim to dismantle oppression in all areas of our work.
