Spanning public sector communications research and evaluation for government departments, the UN, EU and NGOs, this role is focused on scoping, developing and evaluating communication activities. Fascinating and far-reaching, recent projects have considered the most effective way to challenge extremist views to looking at the impact of fake news. Mixed methods work using a wide range of techniques from social listening to surveys, ethnography and groups through to behavioural science, this role offers the opportunity to see the impact of your work, and be part of one of the most highly-regarded social research teams.
This is a growing area so in this role, you can expect to be very client facing, helping to build relationships with UK and international clients. You’ll be designing and delivering research and evaluation studies using mixed methods techniques, managing all aspects of these programmes including overseeing juniors in the team, as well as helping build up the work through writing proposals and pitching.
We need a background in comms research and evaluation on the social research side, strong client management skills, a good understanding and experience of the procurement processes (experience of responding to ITTs etc), an ability to work with other specialist in the team (statisticians, economists etc), excellent project management skills, and you’ll need a genuine interest in developing juniors in the team.
This is a high performing, forward thinking and innovative agency full of smart, dynamic, impressive – and genuinely nice – people. Their ethos is about creating quality work for clients and this focus really pays off in terms of their commercial performance. It’s a stable culture – no constant restructures, no navel gazing, just a focus on delivering great work to clients. As part of this, they genuinely care about their staff and retention is very high. It is a fantastic place to develop your career and enjoy yourself along the way.
