Young Women’s Trust is seeking a highly motivated and experienced Research Lead to take forward exciting plans to establish the charity as a leading centre of expertise on young women’s economic justice and to oversee our evaluation work.
With over a million young women facing a lifetime of disadvantage because they don’t have a job or are in low paid, insecure work and many young women affected by the fallout of the coronavirus crisis, the need for our work couldn’t be more important.
As our Research Lead you will be responsible for developing our new research centre, aimed at ensuring the needs of young women on low or no pay are properly understood, and managing its ambitious programme of work.
With an intersectional focus at its heart, young women trained as peer researchers and an expert steering group, our new research centre will be carrying out, collaborating in and commissioning research to provide a greater understanding of the challenges faced by young women and what young women believe is needed to bring about change.
We’re therefore looking for an experienced researcher, who has strong research management experience, great communication skills and who has the creativity, credibility and drive to help us transform the scale, nature and impact of our research – with young women integral to the process. Leading a small team and a network of peer researchers you will ensure our work enables us to effectively influence policy and practice.
Young Women’s Trust strives to be an inclusive and representative organisation. We welcome applications from everyone regardless of age, sex, gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith or disability.
