Economists | Policy and Advisory
Contribute to a dynamic work programme alongside talented policy and economics practitioners and leaders in the Ministry of Health’s Strategy Group and wider Policy Business Unit. Apply economic concepts and use quantitative data to inform policy work on prioritization, health system design, productivity and value for money. Use your strategic thinking and relationship skills and your ability to set out short term priorities within the big picture for decision makers.
Policy practitioners with economics specialty work throughout the Policy Business Unit and in close relationship with the Chief Economist (Health). Their work may directly support the role of the Chief Economist (Health), or be focused on deliverables within a policy or intelligence group within the Policy Business Unit.
We are currently recruiting for three positions: Policy Analyst (Economics), Senior Policy Analyst (Economics) and Principal Policy Analyst (Economics). All Policy Analysts (Economics) contribute to increasing policy and economics capability across the Ministry.
The Strategy Group sits within the Policy Business Unit, leading work on increasing the sustainability and performance of the health system and enabling more collaboration between the health and wider social sector. Skills in economics and its application to policy are an integral part of a work programme focused on incentives for system change.
The Group works closely with the clinical, operations, purchasing, programme development, funding and legislative functions of the wider Ministry. Opportunities to work in other policy areas, and on Ministry-wide capability development, are facilitated; Analysts are appointed to the wider business unit rather than a specific team vacancy.
