Data Manager - International Social Research

Location: Central London
Salary: c.£29-32,000 + benefits
Job type: Permanent
Reference: 147929

Unusual opportunity for a research data processing expert to focus on international social/public sector studies. In the context of globalisation and global social governance, social research can no longer confine itself to national boundaries and our client's specialist practice has embraced this, growing rapidly in the last few years and now looking to expand further.

Projects include anything from large-scale surveys covering both industrialised and industrialising countries, as well as fragile and conflict-affected states to qualitative studies using a range of traditional and innovative online and offline methodologies. Clients are across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.

They seek an experienced Data Manager to join their friendly, supportive and diverse team of 15 multi-disciplinary researchers, and work closely with large data processing teams based in the UK and Bulgaria, who are responsible for programming their survey questionnaires and producing data outputs in the first instance.

You will be keen to be hands on with complex data sets whilst also applying your planning and management skills to the development and implementation of new optimal data processing operations across the practice. You will be comfortable using different statistical packages (e.g., SPSS, Stata, R), preparing and quality assuring samples (using primarily SPSS and Excel), and using data management and reporting tools (e.g. designing macros and plots in Excel, PowerPoint charting tools).

As part of a leading global research and insight firm, you will enjoy unparalleled support across the piece, including talented colleagues to collaborate with, ongoing investment in methodological innovation as well as your own professional development and a healthy regard given to the importance of a work/life balance.
