This team of public policy research and evaluation specialists prides itself on its delivery of high-quality work and its commitment to innovation, thought leadership and trusted client relationships. Striving to improve public policy and inspire a better society, they have a well-earned reputation for their expertise in this field. The insight they generate impacts on people’s lives – it makes a real and very positive difference. This is what drives them and what they are passionate about – if that is what motivates you, please read on.
This team works with a wide range of government departments to inform and evaluate policy in order to improve services to ensure they are the best they can be and remain relevant to changing needs. Mainly ad hoc, most of the work is 3-6-month programmes, with some longer term, and it tends to focus on identifying what is actually happening “on the ground” with key stakeholders, identifying issues and possible improvements, trialling new ideas, running and evaluating pilots, then taking learnings to shape – and then evaluate – national roll outs.
The work is wide-ranging. As is the subject matter: you might be looking at how to improve services across social care: protecting vulnerable young people, encouraging the development of young people, looking at how to encourage innovation in businesses, how to make roads safer… you can expect to be involved in high profile and important challenges.
This is a mixed methods team and for this role, we are looking for someone with a quantitative background – or a mixed methods researcher who has a quant bias.
You will need strong ad hoc quant skills and a social research background, not necessarily from the policy side – but you will need an interest in it. We need to see client stakeholder skills and the ability to manage projects from initial design through to delivering debriefs.
As importantly, we need a strong team player with natural communication skills who is down to earth, creative and passionate about what they do. This is a fun, supportive, collaborative team of people who pull together – we need someone who fits in. We need someone who wants to be a role model to juniors, helping develop their skills and experience. And someone who is ambitious – who loves what they do and always wants to find new ways of doing things better, whilst being proud of their work and achievements.
Development opportunities abound – and the training here is outstanding, incorporating on the job training from impressive senior leaders, structured inhouse sessions and recognised external programs.
