The CPS is one of the UK's leading free-market think-tanks, founded in 1974 by Margaret Thatcher and Sir Keith Joseph. The Centre exists to promote the principles of free markets and a free society. It also operates the CapX website, which acts as a platform for the best thinking on politics and economics.



The Centre for Policy Studies is looking for an enthusiastic, talented Animator/Designer to join its team. The successful candidate will work both for the CPS and its CapX media arm, producing charts, graphics, GIFs and animated videos that explain and promote the CPS’s policy ideas.

Essential skills:

The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in politics and a desire to help develop and publicise new policy ideas that can make Britain a more prosperous place. The position would be working full-time, based in our offices in Tufton Street in London.
