Research Officer

Centre for Justice Innovation

The Centre for Justice Innovation is looking to recruit an ambitious individual to help the Centre promote criminal justice reform in the United Kingdom.

The research officer will work with the team and our partners to research, develop, implement, and test new approaches to justice system practice, particularly in the youth justice system.

You will be expected to gather and analyse qualitative and quantitative data, and use this to help the Centre change practice and influence policy.

The Centre is keen that change is led by local practitioners and the people who use and experience the services they provide; as such, you will be expected to engage with and learn from both practitioners and service users.

You will also be expected to participate in events and activities involving engagement with key individuals and organisations from across the public, private, and voluntary sectors.

The role will involve:

  • Coordinating and holding conversations with justice system practitioners and service users;
  • Identifying administrative data sources, submitting data requests, collating, and analysing quantitative data;
  • Identifying findings, and synthesising key themes;
  • Presenting findings orally and in writing with practitioner audiences in mind;
  • Working with team members to determine the practical implications of findings;
  • Contributing to the design of research projects;
  • Supporting team members in identifying new opportunities for research projects.
