Opportunities

The Resolution Foundation is looking for a thoughtful and committed individual to join our research team, in order to help drive the Resolution Foundation’s production of high quality, innovative economic analysis and support our 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 the post-holder will be given the opportunity to develop expertise in a specific subject area.

Candidates will need excellent 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.

The Resolution Foundation welcomes applications from all under-represented communities and groups. As part of our commitment to increasing diversity within both our own workforce and the economic policy making sector in general, we offer pre-application discussions to Black, Asian and other Minority Ethnic candidates and all candidates with disabilities who would like to speak to someone about the role in advance. Please contact sharmina.khanam@resolutionfoundation.org for more details.

We also offer the option for Black, Asian and other Minority Ethnic candidates and all candidates with disabilities to opt in to a guaranteed interview scheme if they meet the essential requirements. Please tick the box during the application process if you would like to opt in to the guaranteed interview scheme.


Closing date: 08:59 on 19 April 2021
First interviews will be held w/c 26 April 2021 and second interviews will be held on 4 May 2021.
