Practice Lead, Behavioural Risk

Based in our lovely offices at Second Home, Spitalfields.

Salary dependent on experience.

Flexible working options welcomed.


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

This is where you come in.

As a Practice Lead, you’ll be our gateway to the world - highly experienced in your sector, with a clear vision of what behavioural science can do to change it. You’ll already be at the forefront of applying the discipline to risk culture, either as an internal expert or in a consultancy role. You’ll also understand that your success is as much about pragmatism as it is about technical and theoretical expertise, and that there are no easy answers when balancing that tightrope.

You can expect your role at MoreThanNow to change from moment-to-moment. You might be more comfortable extolling the virtues of behavioural science to an audience of hundreds or elbow deep in statistical analysis, but you’ll have the ability, flexibility and appetite to do both. Whether you take this role towards client education or experimental partnerships is really up to you and your experience - either way, we’ll work to make sure you’re supported and bringing your best.

We know it’s a cliche, but this role is what you make of it. We’re looking for someone who wants to help lead a small and growing business; who wants to pioneer the application of behavioural science in a field where it still has so much potential; and who wants the flexibility and commercial responsibility of working with limited constraints. Again, it’s okay if you need support in one area or another - we can work out the right balance together….


  • An established risk professional with experience working with large, multinational organisations.

  • Masters or Ph.D. in economics, behavioural science or organisational psychology.
