We are building economies that everyone can shape.

We support communities – particularly those furthest from power – to shape the economy to achieve what matters to them.

Delivering economic education for adults and young people

Shaping participatory approaches to economic decision making

Modelling a new approach to public interest economic news through ecnmy.org

Developing place-based approaches to achieve bottom up and top down local economic change

What’s on

Economy does long-term work to build power with people experiencing economic injustice through collectively understanding, reimagining and changing the economy. We are currently recruiting two posts to help steer the organisation through the launch and implementation of our new five-year strategy.

  • Organisational Development Director £43,886 FTE
  • Head of Community £38,949 FTE

You absolutely don’t need a background in economics. We are looking for people who are: passionate about addressing economic injustice, reflective, open and collaborative. Register to attend our info webinar.

The deadline for applications is Sunday 13th November.
