Research Officer

Location Angel, London (working from home initially)
Salary £32,560 per annum
Working hours Full time (35 hours a week). Flexible working is an option.
Contract 1 year fixed term contract

Young Women’s Trust is looking for an enthusiastic and experienced Research Officer to help us achieve economic justice for young women.

With over a million young women facing a lifetime of disadvantage because they don’t have a job or are in low paid, insecure work and many young women affected by the social and economic fallout of the coronavirus crisis, the need for our work couldn’t be more important.

As our Research Officer, you will play a crucial role in developing high quality evidence to support all aspects of our work, and build and maintain our authority about young women facing disadvantage, inequality, discrimination and poverty. A major part of this will be supporting the delivery of our peer research programme and intersectional research which ensures that the experiences of those furthest from power are heard loud and clear.

You will be as comfortable writing up research as you are running focus groups with young women and supporting peer researchers through training, fieldwork and analysis. As well as being a great researcher you will need to be great communicator, to ensure we produce research which is credible and engaging.

If you share our commitment to transforming opportunities for young women and have proven experience of undertaking research which has had impact on policy and practice, then we would love to hear from you.
