About Us

The Behavioural Insights Team (BIT) is a social purpose company. We are jointly owned by the UK Government; Nesta (the innovation charity); and our employees. Our Singapore office was launched in September 2016.

BIT is a trusted advisor to government agencies in Singapore. We work with public servants; spend time understanding the context in which people make decisions; source our ideas from research in behavioural science; and run randomised controlled trials to determine the effectiveness of those ideas.

BIT selects staff on the basis of cultural fit. All our staff believe passionately in our company values: always prioritising social impact; empiricism and humility; fresh thinking, collaboration; and public service. As our team in Singapore grows, we’re now looking for an Associate Advisor to join us.
