Job Description

About the Centre for Public Impact (CPI): 

CPI is a not-for-profit founded by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG). Believing that governments can and want to do better for people, we work side-by-side with governments — and all those who help them — to reimagine government, and turn ideas into action, to bring about better outcomes for everyone.

Our mission is to help governments achieve public impact, i.e. better outcomes for citizens. We are only four years old but already our global footprint is expansive and we partner with some of the biggest names in government, academia and public sector innovation in the world.

Our values: 

  • courageous - we have the courage to speak the truth, to challenge without fear and tackle the difficult questions

  • respectful - we respect differences, we seek to understand them and we look out for one another

  • optimistic - we are positive about what we and governments can do for our societies

  • inclusive - we are non partisan, we work together and seek ideas and solutions across the divides

We encourage applicants from all backgrounds to apply. This includes candidates that have previously found it hard to be considered for other positions on the basis of their qualifications, disabilities, personal background or life events. If you would like to apply for the position but see a barrier to joining us, please do apply and we will work with you to find a solution.
