Job type: Permanent
Unusual opportunity for a senior researcher to focus on complex multi-country social research studies working with international clients across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. In the context of globalisation and global social governance, social research can no longer confine itself to national boundaries and our client's international social research 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 methodologies. Clients include the European Commission, the UN and its agencies, multilateral institutions and agencies, international financial institutions, foundations and NGOs.
With a quant or mixed method background, you will be an expert across F2F and telephone modes and whilst direct social sector experience is not essential, you will need to be passionate about the wider world and different cultures. You will play a key role in managing and delivering a variety of high profile projects with involvement at all stages, including complex logistical planning as well as generating insights and presenting findings.
If you have language skills in addition to English, this will be the perfect environment to use and enhance them and there will be some opportunity for travel. You will enjoy working in a creative, busy, open and supportive environment within a house of influentials.
