RAND Europe is a not-for-profit public-policy research organisation that aims to bring evidence to bear on some of the important policy problems facing society today. Through independent and objective analysis our research teams help to improve policy and decision making. Our mission is to achieve impact and ultimately change lives for the better. RAND Europe is part of the wider RAND Corporation, one of the leading independent research organisations in the world.   RAND Europe works across a range of areas from health to defence from our offices in Cambridge and Brussels. We are ambitious. Our vision is to be the European policy research partner of choice for those who serve the public good. As such, we work across Europe and with a variety of funders. These funders are mainly public sector bodies (e.g. government ministries/departments, research councils, and agencies) but we have seen a significant increase in funding from the private sector and large foundations. Overall, the demand for our services is growing significantly and we have expanded to meet that demand. We have also launched a fundraising campaign to give us the ability to tackle complex policy problems that our traditional sources of funding may not support. Given polarisation in our societies and what we label as ‘truth decay’ we believe that more than ever the work of RAND Europe is critical.   We are currently seeking an Interim Head of Finance to join us on a 12 month Maternity cover contract starting June 2022 to support the President in the leadership of RAND Europe, most significantly including providing strategic and financial guidance to ensure financial reliance and that business objectives are met.
