This vacancy is fixed term and external.

The primary purpose of the House of Lords Library is to provide impartial, authoritative, timely research and information services to support the work of the House. This occurs through the provision of newspapers, journals, books, short-fact finding enquiries, responses to individual requests for research and through the publication of prepared briefings on all major items of business on the floor of the House and in Grand Committee. In addition, the Library supports other offices in the Administration. 

Annually, the Library publishes about 300 briefings and completes over 7,000 short fact-finding and longer research enquiries. The Researcher (Economics) is a new post that will provide extra research capacity and additional subject expertise to support the delivery of these services to Members. The successful applicant will join a team of generalist researchers, who produce impartial, authoritative briefings on a wide range of subjects, not limited to particular policy areas.

See the Library's webpage for more information about our work:

Working in the research team, the Researcher (Economics) will be tasked with answering enquiries from Members and their staff about the economy and related issues, such as business, tax policy, banking and housing. In addition to this, the post holder will write briefing papers for bills and debates on such subjects before the House, and in response to issues of topical interest.  Examples of Lords Library briefing papers can be found on the Parliament website.
