John requires an assistant to provide both research assistance and administrative support.  The work will involve research assistance of a conventional kind:  collecting and analysing data and identifying and summarising sources. It will also include helping to manage John’s diary and make travel arrangements, taking charge of John’s website and developing social media.  John is also a director of an investment company, an Emeritus Research Fellow at St John’s College, Oxford, and frequently advises and collaborates with different universities, newspapers and public and private organisations.  Liaison with all of these organisations, and others, will be part of the job.

The successful candidate will be an economics graduate, and will have the right to work in the UK, but no other specific experience is required.  He or she will be based in or around London but most of the work will be done virtually; however the holder will be encouraged to come to engagements.  Hours are flexible (on both sides) but the position will be more or less full time and the salary is negotiable.
