As part of our commitment to increasing diversity within both our own work force and the economic policy making sector, the Resolution Foundation is offering two paid training placements to graduates who either have a postgraduate degree, or are intending to study for one. This is an excellent opportunity to learn from our experts, produce research outputs for publication on the Foundation’s website, and acquire the skills and experience needed for research roles within the sector.

Applications are open to graduates, who either have a postgraduate degree or are intending to study for one, from the following groups:

  • Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic graduates
  • Graduates with a disability

The 12-week programme is focused on individuals with an interest but little experience in economic and/or public policy analysis. The aim is to ensure they contribute to a number of outputs that they can reference on their CV. Trainees are fully integrated into the Foundation’s research process, and will benefit from peer supervision, in-house training, involvement in the wider work of the Foundation, and specific guidance tailored to the needs of the individual.

Candidates should be reliable and hold:

  • A solid understanding of UK economics and / or public policy;
  • Strong quantitative analysis skills;
  • A relevant BA/BSc qualification or equivalent knowledge gained in another environment; and
  • A commitment to supporting the Foundation’s focus on improving outcomes for people on low and middle incomes.

The training placement will take place predominantly in our Westminster office between August – October 2022, exact dates to be confirmed dependent on Individual availability.

Overseas students will be considered subject to having an unrestricted right to work in the UK (the Foundation is unable to sponsor visa applications for the training programme).

Closing date: 08.59 on Thursday 30 June 2022

Interviews: Week commencing 18 July 2022

Resolution Foundation’s Research Training Scheme for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates and / or candidates with disabilities is a positive action initiative targeted at postgraduate students and recent graduates of African, African-Caribbean, Asian or Chinese origin, and / or candidates with disabilities as these groups are currently under-represented, regionally and nationally, in economics and policy making.
