Will Hutton is one of the most influential voice on work, employment and organisation issues in the UK. Will is currently Principal of Hertford College,Oxford, a post he took on in 2011.  Prior to that he was executive vice chair of The Work Foundation, the most influential voice on work, employment and organisation issues in the UK.

He began his career in the City, as a stockbroker and investment analyst before moving to the BBC, where he worked both on radio, as a producer and reporter, and on TV as economics correspondent for Newsnight. Prior to joining The Work Foundation, Will Hutton spent four years as editor-in-chief of The Observer, for which he continues to write a closely-watched weekly column.

Will Hutton's best-known book is probably The State We're In, which was seen at the time as setting the scene for the Blair revolution. Since then he has published The State to Come, The Stakeholding Society and (with Anthony Giddens) On The Edge, a groundbreaking analysis of globalisation. His most recent book is The Writing on the Wall: China and the West in the 21st Century and his next is a book about fairness.

Will is also governor of the London School of Economics, where he is also a visiting professor. He is an honorary fellow of Mansfield College, Oxford, a member of the Scott Trust and a fellow of the Sunningdale Institute. In 2004, Will Hutton was invited by the European Commission to join a High Level Group on the mid-term review of the Lisbon Strategy and act as its "rapporteur" for the final report.

Will Hutton is regularly called on to advise senior political and business figures and comment in the national and international media, and is considered one of the pre-eminent economic commentators in the United Kingdom.
