Policy Analyst/Senior Policy Analyst/Associate Policy Analyst, Migration Policy Institute Europe, Brussels, Belgium. Deadline: Rolling deadline (posted October 13, 2020).
As a (Senior) Policy Analyst, you will contribute to a high-impact unit of migration experts through your curiosity, solid research, and data skills, as well as analytical and concise writing. We are looking for a top-rate analyst who will quickly get to grips with our rigorous research processes and develop a portfolio of projects that fits within our institutional strategy, while building your own reputation as the go-to expert for different policy issues. As an avid reader, you will be able to quickly assess fast-evolving situations and policy announcements so that you can discuss and analyse these with our extensive networks of policymakers, nongovernmental and intergovernmental organisations, journalists, and other key stakeholders. You will also help strengthen our networks by identifying and building critical relationships—including by speaking at public events and roundtables—and will help tap up-to-the-minute intelligence on policy developments. We are looking for someone who will share our commitment to excellence and impact, thrive off our convivial team spirit, and welcome our commitment to diversity. You will be a vital pillar of the strategic direction of our research and fundraising and become a mentor to junior staff.
Associate Policy Analyst, Migration Policy Institute Europe, Brussels, Belgium. Deadline: Rolling deadline (posted October 13, 2020).
As an Associate Policy Analyst, you will be expected to jump right in and quickly ramp up on the array of projects that our senior staff are leading, bolstering the brainpower of the team through your strong writing and analytic skills. Public events and private roundtables are also a big part of what we do to facilitate critical discussions. That means you will need to rapidly come to understand the landscape of the European policy community; research the appropriate policymakers, thought leaders, and organisations to connect with; and manage multiple event functions, from drafting invitations to following up with potential speakers. If you are organised, proactive, curious, an avid reader, have strong research and writing skills, and want an organisation that you can spend the next several years of your career growing with, you have come to the right place.
