Job Title: Research and Advocacy Manager
Working For: Fairness Foundation
Salary: £37,000 to £42,000, depending on experience
Length of Contract: Permanent
The Fairness Foundation works to change the debate around fairness to build a fairer society. To change the debate about fairness in the UK, we need to convince key policy stakeholders – the media, politicians, and a wide variety of experts – that:
- Unfairness and inequality are not only morally wrong but are policy priorities because they are undermining the health of our economy, society, democracy and our natural environment
- The public are more concerned about this agenda, and more supportive of action on it, than is often assumed to be the case, and the same is true for business leaders
You will work closely with the Chief Executive to undertake research and to promote our work to the media, policymakers and other decision-makers and influencers. You will be carrying out research, writing briefings, building relationships with journalists, parliamentarians and partners, working out how to explain complex issues in simple and compelling ways, developing and managing influencing opportunities such as events and publications, reacting to opportunities for impact, generating ideas and feeding into strategies as well as implementing agreed plans.

Closing Date: 20 January 2024
Interviews will be carried out on a rolling basis as applications come in, and we will keep looking for someone to fill this role until we find the right person. Ideally we would like to fill the role by the start of 2024.
Our online application form has just three questions (why we should hire you, why you want the job, and how you would get our work onto the media and political agenda). We’ll ask you to answer the last question by recording a short video.
