Full-time, 35 hours a week (4 days a week/flexible working would be considered)
Angel, Islington (Central London)
Young Women’s Trust is seeking a highly motivated and experienced Research Lead to take forward exciting plans to establish the charity as a leading centre of expertise on young women and economic justice.
Joining as maternity cover at an exciting time for the organisation you will play a key role in changing how we undertake research at Young Women’s Trust, so that we build the evidence base needed to transform opportunities for young women, especially those on low or no pay.
A major part of this will be developing a peer research programme and an intersectional research strategy which ensures that the experiences of those furthest from power are heard loud and clear – and ensuring we present research findings in a truly engaging way.
We’re therefore looking for someone who can hit the ground running and who has the creativity, credibility and drive to help us transform the scale, nature and impact of our research – with young women integral to the process.
The successful candidate will be as comfortable developing research strategies and proposals as they are running focus groups with young women, supporting peer researchers, engaging with the research community or presenting findings to diverse audiences.
As well as being a great researcher we’re looking for a great communicator, to ensure we produce research which is credible and engaging.
At Young Women’s Trust as a feminist organisation working to achieve economic justice for young women, we work to give economic power to young women by raising their voices, challenging sexist stereotypes and rebuilding workplaces free from discrimination.
We welcome applications from everyone regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith or disability.
Secondments welcome. To arrange an informal discussion about the role please email firstname.lastname@example.org
For successful candidates, interviews will be held at our fully accessible offices in Angel, Islington on Tuesday 11 February.
