Driven by both passion and analytical intellect, the Policy & Research Officer is responsible for delivering robust research on a range of high-profile issues. At its very core, this role is about supporting the policy team by providing data and insight. You’ll engage in complex research projects using a variety of methodologies (surveys, questionnaires, interviews, etc.) that generate data and aid in policy development. It’s important to have an in-depth knowledge of UK political institutions and an eye for detail as you’ll be analysing government policies, drafting reports and engaging with stakeholders.

“ I started in advice, as a helpline coordinator/advisor and moved into policy. The main development and learning opportunities I received were by contributing to policy work in the charity I worked for at the time. I later did a part-time Masters by research while staying in work. “
