Job Details

This is an exciting opportunity for a skilled quantitative researcher to join the Work Foundation.

We are looking for someone who shares our goal to tackle structural inequalities in the UK labour market through shaping changes in policy and practice, and has outstanding analytical skills to help make sure our research has real world impact.

The work you’ll do

The Analyst will support data analysis projects at the Work Foundation, interpreting data, producing visualisations and briefings, and contributing to the development of creative policy recommendations. Their analysis and ideas will be crucial in furthering our mission to expose and tackle structural inequalities in the labour market that disabled workers, women and black and minority ethnic workers continue to face.

They will be involved in delivering our regular analytical outputs, such as the WF’s response to monthly Labour Force Survey releases, and our annual UK Insecure Work Index. They’ll help us to interpret and respond to developments in the world of work, generating insights into emerging trends and policy announcements as they transpire.

Our analysis regularly attracts print and broadcast media coverage, and has recently been cited in written and oral evidence to parliamentary select committees.

We are ambitious about delivering research that has impact in society, and work closely with workers, employers and policymakers to realise that goal.

We are a small, friendly and collaborative team focussed on building institutional expertise. Alongside formal training, there will be plenty of opportunities to learn from and support your research team colleagues through research workshops, presentations and peer learning.

Being part of our team

Flexible working is important to us at the Work Foundation and we’re open to candidates who would like to work flexible hours or job share. Members of our team currently use a range of flexible working arrangements including part-time, flexible hours and compressed hours.

We have offices in central London and on campus at Lancaster University. Our team tend to work part of the week at home, and part of the week on site, but both offices are available 5 days a week.
