  • Conducting a range of research and related activity including literature and policy reviews, interviews, surveys and other background research to support high-quality analysis.
  • Writing a range of engaging written materials including research reports, policy briefings, blogs and press articles to support the dissemination of your analysis, arguments and recommendations and to raise the profile of community power in general.
  • Working on projects across the organisation including in our developing area of practice, which deploys teams including researchers to understand and support public sector organisations to implement practical actions to become more community powered.
  • Representing the organisation externally at events and by presenting research to a range of stakeholders, including central government, the public sector, local government and the wider public policy community.
  • Producing written materials for our membership network including briefings, case studies and email updates.
  • Supporting our role as a network convenor, which includes facilitating workshops and other ad hoc activity to support peer learning and practice sharing.
  • Actively contributing to our communications, campaigns and policy influencing work, collaborating with colleagues across the team to produce impactful and accessible materials.
  • Maintaining relationships with stakeholders relevant to the policy work of New Local.
  • Contributing to developing and funding research project proposals.
  • Undertaking other reasonable duties as specified by the Director of Research or the wider Senior Management Team, and to contribute to the corporate activities of New local.

In addition to the advertised salary, we offer

  • A minimum of 27 days’ holiday a year and ten days holiday over Christmas/New Year
