About the PPI

The Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) is an independent research organisation established to help improve later life outcomes by providing evidence to shape policy. We provide fact-based evidence to inform policy discussions on pensions and retirement income provision. We have a proven track record in analysing future trends within the policy landscape including social, economic, technological, and demographic changes. 

The PPI’s aim is to improve information and understanding about pensions and the financial and economic provision in later life. We do not lobby for any particular policy, and we do not take politically influenced views. Our research is most relevant at the policy-making level, nevertheless we play a role in raising the wider understanding of pensions and retirement income provision. The PPI works with government and a wide range of organisations and academics with an interest in pensions and financial provision for later life.

With an experienced leadership team, the PPI has existed for 20 years. Following a comprehensive review, we are pursuing specific strategic projects and updating our approach to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion that will enhance the organisation and our position as a trusted source of research and information.

The PPI office is in Central London. The team and Council have operated remotely during the pandemic and will continue to facilitate virtual meetings.

The closing date for applications is Friday 3rd September 2021.
