Cabinet Office

The Cabinet Office acts, alongside HM Treasury, as the strategic centre of

government. That means supporting the Prime Minister in ensuring the

Government’s programme is delivered successfully and helping the Minister for the

Cabinet Office to make Government work better and to deliver more efficient

services for the public. It’s a fast-moving environment where analysts will face

professional challenges and engage in interesting and influential analytical work.

Most important, working in the Cabinet Office provides analysts with a number of

insights and opportunities that are unique to working at the centre of government.

The main objectives of the Cabinet Office are to:

1. Support the Prime Minister and Cabinet to deliver the Government's

programme

2. Drive efficiencies and reforms that will make Government work better

3. Build a stronger civil society

4. Create a more united democracy

5. Strengthen and secure the United Kingdom at home and abroad

Social Research in Cabinet Office

Social researchers within the Cabinet Office work closely with policy colleagues to

provide research and analysis across a wide range of dynamic policy areas.

Social researchers at Cabinet Office typically have a mixed portfolio of work that

provides the opportunity to develop skills in all areas of social research methods and

analysis. The high-profile and fast-paced culture at Cabinet Office also means that

social researchers routinely have the opportunity to develop their skill set across the

range of civil service competencies.

A Cabinet Office researcher might be involved in designing and delivering largescale

evaluations and national surveys, providing written and oral briefing to senior

officials and ministers and conducting analysis of administrative or survey data.

There are currently around 12 social researchers at Cabinet Office, some based

within the central Analysis and Insight unit while others are embedded into policy

units. There is a strong culture of multidisciplinary working in Cabinet Office with

social researchers working closely alongside economists and statisticians.

Examples of what Cabinet Office social researchers do include:

o Designing and managing large-scale evaluations such as the National Citizen

Service – the Government’s flagship programme for young people. 

o Delivering national surveys using innovative approaches such as the Community

Life Survey.

o Supporting a large number of trials and other evaluations to understand the

impact and cost-benefit of a number of grant-funded social action programmes.

o Delivering randomised control trials in partnership with local authorities, and

commercial software suppliers to build evidence of more effective electoral

registration practices.

o Delivering the People Survey, the annual employee engagement survey, to over

400,000 Civil Servants across nearly 100 organisations, producing analysis of the

results and presenting it to senior stakeholders across the Civil Service.
