Location: London
Salary: £25,000 per annum

Role: Researcher (Maternity Cover)

This is a Maternity Cover position, full time for at least 9 months.
Working with the Director of Research and Managing Director, you will provide research and analysis (including data analysis) across a wide range of projects.
Draft copy and review materials before publication.
Author briefing notes, provide policy support and contribute to our growing body of work across a range of sectors.
Develop unique and original research ideas, and lead on bringing research tasks to fruition.


You will have experience working in policy research and analysis.
You will be equally at home working with statistics or analysing legislation. An understanding of, and interest in, politics is essential.
You will be working within emerging and evolving debates from public service provision to Brexit – adaptability is essential.
Global Future is a new think tank and an organisation growing from the ground up – so attitude matters. Every member of staff from the managing director down is expected to show enthusiasm, energy, and initiative – and most importantly of all, a willingness to muck in where necessary. If that isn’t you, don’t apply.
