Job Details

We are currently seeking an experienced researcher to write a policy paper with a focus on rethinking housing supply and design in a zero-carbon economy that is inclusive, accessible and designed with the needs of women in mind.

The paper should cover the following in a UK-wide approach:

  • Short overview of current gendered inequities in housing affordability, access, usage and design in both private renting and home ownership;
  • Innovative solutions to affordable, sustainable, equitable housing (such as co-housing, community-led housing, common ground trusts);
  • Housing design that addresses and aims to balance gendered practices, patterns and roles in the home (for example in in unpaid work/care) and meets the needs of diverse women;
  • Housing design that centres efficient resource usage, for example adequate space for storing recyclables, sharing tools and appliances between neighbours;
  • Housing design that transforms the way we care for communities, e.g. co-locating carers and people requiring care.

We are looking for a short (10 pages) exploratory paper which focus on policy solutions. The first version of the paper will inform the roundtable discussion on 23 June 2021 and updated afterwards.

This is a paid consultant job.
