Job Title: Senior Researcher
Working For: Institute for Government
Salary: £38,000 - £46,000 depending on skills/experience
The Institute for Government is inviting applications for a Senior Researcher position (Job Reference: SRES2008). Senior Researchers are responsible for helping to deliver Institute research projects, often leading specific research projects under the supervision of Programme Directors.
At this time of intense debate about the role of government and the UK’s position in the world, we are looking for someone who will relish the opportunity to drive real changes in government’s ability to tackle the country’s problems.
We want our Senior Researchers to make a significant contribution to the Institute’s impact, working independently and creatively, initiating ideas, facilitating meetings, and energetically employing a range of research methods to gather evidence, reach judgements and make persuasive arguments. We are particularly keen to hear from candidates who are confident with quantitative analysis.
This role could suit people with a wide range of different experiences, including but not limited to research and analysis for government, journalism, a think tank or other organisation. If you are interested in applying but are not sure you have all the skills, please do so and give us the opportunity to consider you as a candidate.
The Institute for Government is committed to supporting greater diversity and inclusion within our workforce, and to fostering an environment in which people from all backgrounds feel welcome and valued. We particularly welcome applications for this role from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates.
