The Runnymede Trust is the UK’s leading race equality think tank, generating research to challenge racial inequality in the country and working tirelessly to build a Britain in which we all belong.
This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced researcher to join a prospective research project, focused on the disproportionate impact school exclusions have on minority ethnic students in the UK. The project is jointly delivered by Communities Empowerment Network (CEN) - a London based charity that promotes equality of opportunity for those who would otherwise be discriminated against because of their race, primarily in the areas of school admissions and exclusions; and the Runnymede Trust - the UK’s leading race equality think tank.
The role requires working as a Researcher in Residence within the team at CEN where you will deliver innovative qualitative research employing ethnographic research methods. You will follow a cohort of students and their associated families as they navigate the exclusions and appeals process, accurately record their journeys and stage 1-2-1 semi-structured interviews at key intervals. Strong interpersonal and relationship building skills are essential for the role, as you will shadow a triage administrator, a number of caseworkers, and a pastoral support worker. Alongside this, you will need to maintain companionate relationships with students and their families over the course of a school year and ensure that ethical and safeguarding protocols are followed.
As Researcher in Residence your role will consist of the following duties:
To succeed in the role:
You will have experience delivering longitudinal research and have familiarity with casework in relation to justice services. You’ll have an ability to build trust positive relationships with a diverse group of stakeholders. Your thoughtful approach to issues of ethics, positionality and power will ensure the research is rich, co-created and centres the experiences and voices of participants.
