As a not-for-profit, the Institute for Employment Studies (IES) has been delivering independent, evidence-based research that makes a difference for fifty years.
From helping major employers to stop the gender pay gap in its tracks, to assisting government departments to understand the effects of new initiatives such as the T Levels, IES leads a wide programme of research on issues that matter. As a researcher, every day is different, and we’ll support you to develop your own area of research interest.
We are looking for bright, inquisitive researchers who are passionate about improving employment and education policy and practices. Ideally you’ll have:
- a higher degree in a social science discipline with evidence of significant understanding of UK employment policy and interest in labour market/employment/HR issues.
- an undergraduate degree with significant relevant work experience in applied social or economic research.
Experience in handling quantitative data, and using software packages, such as SPSS or Stata to conduct multi-variate analysis is desirable, but not essential.
