This is an exciting time to join the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), which has one of the widest remits in Whitehall and plays a key role in making markets work well for business, consumers and workers.

As the Director for International Science and Innovation, you will work closely with the Secretary of State and Ministers to ensure that Britain continues to be a leading science nation. You will be responsible for leading teams to manage the transition from existing EU programmes, setting the direction for the negotiations and analytical business cases.

The successful candidate for this role will need to demonstrate experience of using evidence and/ or analysis in policy/ strategy making; developing policies using a robust evidence base; and will need to be a strategic thinker able to lead and manage a complex agenda.

We also expect you to demonstrate evidence of your effective leadership and credibility to operate at all levels within and across organisational boundaries in a dynamic environment.
