Our mission: To be a trusted product regulator for the UK.

Our goal: To be a leader of good regulatory practice and a champion of local regulation.

We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and skills. There is a guaranteed interview scheme (GIS) for people with disabilities who meet the minimum selection criteria.

We are Inclusive

We are fully committed to being an inclusive employer and ensuring equal opportunities. We are keen to make our workforce as diverse as possible and recognise how important inclusivity is to achieve the best outcomes. We hope to attract applications from all underrepresented groups.

About the Team

OPSS Analysis is a growing multi-disciplinary team, it is led by a Social Researcher Deputy Director and comprises 20 analysts working across four different analytical professions - operational research, statistics, social researchers and economists. It complements other technical teams in OPSS, delivering an evidence base in partnership across a range of analytical, intelligence, scientific & engineering subject areas.

The Team provides analytical support for all the Office’s activity, adding new value by harnessing their profession-specific expertise. Analysis is highly valued in OPSS to inform policy, regulation changes and consumer campaigns. We are tackling interesting and important issues, such as how much consumers think about safety when buying products and how we can influence industry and consumer behaviour to increase safety. We have responsibility for a broad remit, including toys, cosmetics, fireworks, construction products and metrology.

OPSS's research work is very diverse and is likely to give the opportunity to develop skills and experience in research methods including: policy evaluation including theory-based and value-for-money methods, behavioural analysis and insights, experimental methods, survey methods, qualitative interviews and focus groups.

Research and evaluation questions that we expect to work on over the next year include:

  • What is the impact of our consumer engagement activities aimed at reducing the risk of children swallowing button batteries?
  • What evaluation methodologies are appropriate for assessing the impact that OPSS has on the safe installation and use of construction products (such as thermal insulation)?
  • What is the impact of OPSS's work to reduce the risk of harm from products purchased through online marketplaces?

Responsibilities

  • You will lead on reviewing and delivering the monitoring and evaluation plan for the new Office for Product Safety & Standards Strategy or, alternatively, for the Office for Product Safety and Standards' new regulatory responsibilities towards construction products.
  • You will work across a multi-disciplinary team to collect evidence, to scope and design research, commission and project manage the delivery of analytical projects, and perform quality assurance, engaging colleagues and partner organisations in this process and keeping them informed of findings.
  • You will also have a critical role in working with programme management colleagues to design and ensure the collection and reporting against key metrics, while thinking creatively to embed monitoring and evaluation at the heart of the Office for Product Safety & Standards activities.

Skills and Experience

We are looking for an analyst with experience of managing and overseeing analytical projects and delivery partners, with experience in a range of qualitative and quantitative research methodologies who has good interpersonal, verbal and written skills, and can summarise complex findings in an accessible and engaging way.

Applicants should use their CV and personal statement to demonstrate they meet the person specification and the skill requirements set out below. Applicants from outside of the Civil Service must also state which analytical profession they wish to join. Eligibility for the analytical professions is outlined below:

For social researchers a 2:1 in a relevant social science degree with a substantive research element, such as demography, economics, human geography, linguistics, or psychology. Alternatively a 2:2 in a non-social science degree plus a masters level social science degree, or work place experience and a degree equivalent (Certificate or Diploma), are also accepted.

For statisticians a 2:2 in a subject containing formal statistical training, such as statistics, mathematics, economics, sciences, business studies, psychology, geography.

For operational researchers a 2:1 in a numerate field, such as operational research, mathematics, physics, econometrics, engineering, or management science.

If you are not already a government analyst, please refer to the attached eligibility criteria document for more detail on appropriate qualifications, exemptions for work experience, and detail on the profession-specific 'badging' processes.

While not essential, experience in consumer or product safety issues, behavioural science, or construction is welcome. Interest in diversity and inclusion is also welcome. It is not expected that you are a subject matter expertise in product safety, as we will provide training and upskilling.
