About the role
JRF’s Insight and Analysis team produces high-quality, original and actionable JRF analysis about poverty issues. We draw on a range of data sources, commissioned research and work with partners with lived experience of poverty to better understand what’s happening, why, and what can be done to solve poverty.
We are looking for someone with the knowledge and curiosity to help shape and lead JRF’s programme of analytical work. The role offers the opportunity to undertake original and creative analysis to shed new light on poverty-related issues, as well as offering a professional analytical perspective across the wider organisation. The role involves designing the approach, identifying requirements and leading a range of innovative analytical work to meet JRF’s priorities. You will also take responsibility for leading the development, maintenance and improvement of the infrastructure underpinning JRF’s analytical work.
The Analysis Manager would be expected to generate ideas for new analysis, using a range of data sources, to support JRF’s mission – informing our policy & ideas work and our campaigning, media and advocacy activity. They would be responsible for leading and managing significant pieces of work – as well as supporting the growth and development of other members of the team.
We are seeking applications from people with a passion for high quality, creative and impactful analysis. You need an ability to design, shape, lead and deliver high quality analysis, as well as providing leadership and professional development to the analytical team. You will have a thirst for exploring the possibilities of new data sources and different analytical techniques as well as a strong commitment to social policy and solving UK poverty.
Strong expertise in statistical analysis, economics or social research are essential. So too is an ability to work collaboratively and effectively with colleagues to design and carry out analysis.
Experience using data analysis software (e.g., Stata) to analyse national survey datasets is necessary, with wider experience of analysing other forms of data for example administrative data highly desirable.
The Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) is a highly regarded independent social change organisation. Our mission is to inspire action and change to solve UK poverty. Together with the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust (JRHT), we are working towards a shared vision of a prosperous UK without poverty.
Founded in 1904, a substantial endowment from the family confectionery firm means that JRF does not need to fundraise. We make grants and invest extensively in projects and partner organisations which are working to achieve the same goals. Through research, policy, collaboration and practical solutions, JRF aims to inspire action and change that will create a prosperous UK without poverty.
We work with others to put forward sector-leading research, evidence, solutions and stories to the UK’s influencers and decision makers.
We believe that a prosperous poverty-free UK is within reach, we just need more people to believe it too.
