What’s it like to work at Policy in Practice?

“There are a lot of client-facing opportunities, as a technical person, to be right in front of customers to make sure that the product that we’re building is meeting their needs. It’s always great when you hear customers share their stories of how they’ve used our tools to effectively target support to residents.

“I was passionate about making an impact and I think if you have those two things, for a technical role here at Policy in Practice, that’s more than enough.”

Terrin Mathew, Technical Data Analyst

“It’s not just crunching numbers, it’s thinking about that in context. We’re always chatting to clients or people that are using our free benefit calculator and we are having to discuss the policy issues behind the data. There have been so many opportunities. I’ve been on TV talking about the British welfare system and policy, meeting clients as well as improving my own data analysis skills.”

Louise Murphy, Senior Policy and Operations Analyst

“I set up Policy in Practice to change how policy is communicated to people. If it’s clear and simple, you put power in the hands of the citizen so they can make the decisions that are right for them. It is about making a fundamental difference on the front line.”

Deven Ghelani, Director and Founder
