Would you like to be at the forefront of social research?

Join a vibrant, Brighton-based team, with clear opportunities for progression and above-average annual leave?
Making a difference through social research
As a not-for-profit, the Institute for Employment Studies (IES) has been cultivating independent, evidence-based research that matters for fifty years.
From helping major employers to stop the gender pay gap in its tracks, to exploring mindfulness and mental health for government bodies, employers and charities like MIND. As a researcher, every day is different, and we’ll support you to develop your own area of research interest.
We are looking for bright, inquisitive researchers who are passionate about improving employment and education policy and practice. Ideally you’ll have:
1. a higher degree in a social science discipline with evidence of significant understanding of UK employment policy and interest in labour market/employment/HR issues
2.an undergraduate degree with significant relevant work experience in applied social or economic research.
Experience in handling quantitative data, and using software packages, such as SPSS or Stata to conduct multi-variate analysis is desirable, but not essential.
IES is based in Brighton. We offer excellent benefits of 31 days’ holiday per year for full-time staff, plus bank holidays, a contributory career-average defined benefit pension scheme (USS), career progression and development opportunities and support to disseminate your research, build your external reputation and expand your knowledge through working with our expert staff.
