Qualitative Research Manager: public sector research – help build a better society

This renowned social research business is thriving as a result of both their creativity of approach and the rigour and quality of their outcomes. Passionate about informing and evaluating policies to improve public services and make them the best they can be, the insight they generate impacts on people’s lives. Striving to improve public policy and inspire a better society is what drives them – in their words “this work makes a massive difference”. If this is what motivates you, please read on.

The work is wide-ranging and you would get to work across all aspects of social care; much of their current work is around developing policy and services as a result of covid – including developing services to help children, and especially children from disadvantaged backgrounds, catch up following the lock down, and a huge project looking at the impact of covid on inequality around health. All very high-profile subjects. Previous projects span the spectrum of social care including encouraging the development of young people, looking at how to encourage innovation in businesses, how to make roads safer… all important challenges.

This is a qual role in a mixed methods team, so you will work on both qual-only projects as well as on the qual part of mixed methods programmes. The qual techniques used are broad: depth interviews groups, deliberative projects, ethnographic studies, online etc.

We are looking for an established qual researcher who is used to and enjoys managing multiple projects, with some public sector/social/not for profit research experience. Important are client facing skills, a passion for analysis and pulling out key themes, good communication and experience of managing end to end projects.

As importantly, we need a strong team player 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 junior members of the team, helping develop their skills and experience.  And someone who loves what they do and always wants to find new ways of doing things better, whilst being proud of their work and achievements.

This is a place where people stay for the long term and develop themselves and their career; there is a commitment to learning and plenty of opportunity for progression.
