Assistant Statistician at Department for International Development

The Department for International Development (DFID) leads the UK’s work to end extreme poverty, deliver the Global Goals, and tackle global challenges in line with the government’s UK Aid Strategy. Our aid budget is spent on tackling the great global challenges – from the root causes of mass migration and disease, to the threat of terrorism and global climate change – all of which also directly threaten British interests.

We are seeking applications for two Assistant Statistician posts, based in different DFID teams – both roles will involve working with a wide network of statisticians based in DFID country offices, with policy colleagues, DFID’s Chief Statistician and engaging with the international development statistics community.
