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.

Job purpose

This is a key role with the potential to help shape the UK’s research and policy narratives on race and inequalities with one of the country’s leading think tanks on race and social justice.

As a Senior Researcher, you'll play a pivotal role in driving our research agenda forward. You will have responsibility for ensuring our research is rigorous and of stellar quality, and ensure wider project efforts are coordinated, budgeted, and delivered to deadlines. From conceptualization to execution, you'll take ownership of research projects, collaborating closely with internal colleagues and external partners. You'll have the opportunity to lead and contribute to multiple research programs, utilising both quantitative and qualitative methods to analyse patterns and trends that examine the complex links between race and outcomes in various thematic areas. With exposure to a diverse portfolio of research initiatives, you'll ensure the integrity and quality of our work while meeting project deadlines and budgets. This is an opportunity to make a significant impact by generating discussion papers, briefing papers, and policy responses that inform public discourse and policymaking.

Responsibilities and main duties include:

  • Use a mixture of quantitative and qualitative methods to deliver research aims and produce reports analysing and interpreting patterns and trends that examine the links between race and outcomes in selected thematic areas.
  • Project manage research projects ensuring milestones, budgets and reporting requirements are met, maintained and communicated internally and to external partners where appropriate.
  • Help develop our research approaches, methodologies and tools.
  • Identify, pursue and develop new relationships with external partners.
  • Lead on regular and strategic communication with external partners or funders to effectively report on research progress and impact.

Our research aims to analyse and expose structural racism and explore its role in the racialised inequalities that persist in the UK today. In doing so we are attentive to nuances in our communities and you will need the expertise to delve into the intersections of race, class, and gender in the projects undertaken.

Person specification (for a full person specification please consult the job description)

  • PhD in a relevant discipline and/or relevant years of experience in policy, research, academic or third sector body.
  • Experience of designing, planning and delivering research proposals and projects across a wide range of thematic areas, using mixed methods.
  • An excellent understanding of the issues of race and racism in the UK and a proven commitment to promoting racial equality.
  • Demonstrable understanding of the intersection between race, gender and class.
  • Ability to source complex data from varying sources and undertake the necessary analysis and interpretation to form impactful recommendations.
  • Commitment to rigorous evidence based impartial analysis and able to work in a politically impartial way.
  • A deep individual commitment to equality and anti-racist action, through continuous development, modelling inclusive behaviours, and proactively promoting equity, diversity and inclusion throughout your work.
