Employment, Welfare and Skills

Employment, Welfare and Skills is one of our largest and fastest growing research teams. Our work is diverse, encompassing research and evaluation on key government policies such as the Universal Credit, pensions and auto-enrolment, apprenticeship levy, and the Industrial Strategy.
