The Resolution Foundation is looking for a thoughtful and committed individual to join our research team, in order to help drive the production of high quality, innovative economic analysis and support the development of associated policy recommendations.

The role will add to our capacity across a range of areas associated with the living standards of households on low-to-middle incomes, and to the work being done for the Economy 2030 project. The post-holder will also be given the opportunity to develop expertise in a specific subject area.

Candidates will need strong quantitative research skills, good knowledge and understanding of public policy issues and the key datasets relating to living standards in the UK, and the ability to communicate the results of research in a compelling way.

The Foundation prides itself on analytical rigour and we strive to achieve standards of excellence in all our work. This commitment is matched by dedication to our core purpose, working to improve the living standards of those on low-to-middle incomes. These twin pillars of rigour and purpose underpin everything we do. We are a fast-paced organisation, focused on responding to the current economic crisis as well as contributing to crucial longer-term public policy debates. The capability to work at pace on several different projects concurrently and a strong desire to progress within an academically-rigorous and policy-engaged research team are essential.

We welcome applications from all under-represented communities and groups. As part of our commitment to increasing diversity within our own workforce and the policy-making sector, we are particularly keen to attract candidates from black, Asian and other minority ethnic backgrounds. To facilitate this, we invite interested black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates to attend a pre-application workshop with our team, to find out more about our role within the sector, the application process, and what it’s like to work for the Foundation as a member of the Research Team. Workshops will be held on 18 November 2021. Please contact to register your interest.

We offer candidates with disabilities the option to opt in to a guaranteed interview scheme. Please tick the box during the application process if you would like to take part. We are also happy to discuss individual requirements relating to the application process and/or the demands of the role itself to ensure reasonable adjustments are confirmed in advance. Please contact if you would like to speak to someone in confidence about your needs.

Closing date: 08.59 on Thursday 25 November 2021
First and second interviews will be held week commencing 6 December
