Job description

Job Title Senior Policy Researcher for Northern Ireland

Main purpose and scope of the role:

Parentkind is a national charity and we work across all four nations of the United Kingdom and the devolved institutions and governments.

The successful candidate would be expected to support our work in Northern Ireland and have demonstrable experience of the political system in Northern Ireland.

In addition to their work in Northern Ireland the successful candidate will support the wider aims of the Policy and Research Department across the UK.

The role will involve conducting research on education policy and making policy recommendations based on that research.
