Vacancy: People’s Panel


An opportunity to join CPI People’s Panel (4 positions) Unpaid- Travel and related expenses covered at events held around the country, 4 times a year, with some opportunities to attend events and contribute to CPI’s work in between. 

Are you passionate about representing the views of UK citizens and giving insight into policymaking, as well as ensuring public services and governments work well? Are you looking for a way to ensure citizen’s voices count towards how government and other changemakers think about them? Do you live in the UK outside of London? If so, you may want to apply to be on our People’s Panel. 

We are the Centre for Public Impact UK (CPI UK); a not-for-profit organisation, founded by the Boston Consulting Group, who aims to reimagine the way the UK government works, to ensure it listens to citizens, learns how to operate more effectively, and adapts to the fast changing times. We work with government, the public service and the third sector in the UK, to ensure it is more representative of the people it looks to serve. 

To help us achieve this aim, we formed a ‘CPI People’s Panel’ in 2019 to help us stay connected to the issues that matter to people both in the UK and internationally. We are therefore seeking individuals living in the UK, outside of London, who can bring a diverse range of perspectives to discussions. We have already appointed 12 passionate individuals from a variety of backgrounds who are providing input into our work by raising issues that matter to people. We are hoping to increase the size of our existing panel to ensure further diversity in perspectives and experiences and from all across the UK. 

What’s in it for you?

  • The chance to raise issues with an influential organisation that has established and growing links with the UK government and other governments worldwide. 
  • The opportunity to review and shape CPI’s work on a quarterly basis to ensure that we are helping governments to become more connected to people and their needs. 
  • The opportunity to build a network with others who care about issues affecting people today, and about how public services and government, national and local, work for them. 

What’s in it for us?

  • A better understanding of the issues affecting UK citizen’s lives and the role that the government can play to address these. 
  • Guidance on our work from those who are working directly with UK citizens impacted by government and its policies 
  • Connecting with other passionate individuals, who want to help drive change for people everywhere
