Lead Behavioural Scientist

Based in our lovely offices at Second Home, Spitalfields

Salary: £45k - £50k

Flexible working options welcomed.


MoreThanNow is a behavioural change consultancy using science and creativity to transform the workplace. For us, this means uniting inclusivity, employee happiness and high-performance at work: a relationship that often strengthens as we look to the future and away from the here and now.

We believe our mission needs us at our best; working transparently and at the cutting edge of behavioural science. We want to help solve our clients problems and contribute to a growing understanding of human behaviour. It encourages us to seek out the unknown in every project and explore and experiment with every step.

That’s where you come in.

You’re already at the forefront of applied behavioural science, likely as a post-doc with a particular interest in field experimentation in the workplace.

As our Behavioural Science Lead, you’ll focus tightly on our experimental output - the end product of all our work at MoreThanNow. We’ve worked hard to form long-term relationships that will give you huge opportunities for research and real world impact, but it’s still early days for RCT’s and workplace culture. You won’t just be willing to seek balance between rigour and pragmatism, you’ll be actively invested in how to best apply an experimental approach.

We know it’s a cliche, but this role is what you make of it. We’re looking for someone who wants to bridge the gap between academia and practice, and maximise the value they bring to the world. We can’t say it will be easy, but we can promise our unwavering commitment to bringing science to work.

What we’d like you to bring.

  • A PhD in economics, behavioural science or organisational/social psychology (or working towards it).

  • Experience applying behavioural science or psychology to the workplace, including the design and statistical analysis of randomised controlled trials.

  • Experience translating behavioural insight and research findings for a non-academic audience, in both written and spoken form.

  • Exposure to a corporate audience, either through teaching, research or consultancy.


This role will soon go live through our friends at Applied Recruitment. Please get in touch at hello@morethannow.co.uk if you’d like an informal chat in advance.
