About the role:

We have an opportunity for an experienced Qualitative Research Manager to join the new Evidence and Impact Team.

Within the role, you will own the full research process, from project design to report writing, working with colleagues and external partners to analyse and present evidence in the most effective way. Scoping and developing content to meet JRF’s outcomes on housing, work and social security, you will also support junior researchers, and the growth and development of the team.

It’s not right that millions of people are locked in poverty in the UK and that’s why we’ve made it our mission to solve it. JRF’s new strategy will work alongside our partners to build public and political will for change and the demand for solutions

About you:

We are looking for someone with extensive experience of using qualitative methods, including managing focus groups and conducting direct interviews, in relation to social and economic issues or social policy.

We need someone who will be able to support more junior staff to carry out qualitative research, with excellent communication skills, able to engage effectively with a wide range of audiences. With project management experience, and a collaborative approach, we are looking for a team player who is focussed on using research for social change.

About us:

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation is a social change organisation with a 100-year history. We are built on trust, show we care, and exist to make a difference.

We work with others to put forward sector-leading research, evidence, solutions and stories to the UK’s influencers and decision-makers.

We believe that a prosperous poverty-free UK is within reach - we just need more people to believe it too.

To make our vision a reality we need talent, ideas, skills and passion, plus we need to change some of what we do and how we do it. So, we’re embarking on a significant period of change - change that will see us become an outcomes-focused organisation that embraces new ways of working and modern practices.

If you share our passion, then we need to hear from you.
