This is a full-time role



Learning and Work Institute is an independent research and development organisation dedicated to promoting lifelong learning, full employment and inclusion.

Our vision is for a prosperous and fair society in which learning and work provide opportunities for everyone to realise their potential and ambitions throughout life.

To this end, we are focused on the big questions. How do we support people to build their careers and progress out of low pay? How do we help people to be healthy, active and engaged citizens? And how do we do all of this at a time of constrained public finances?

We’re looking to recruit a Head of Research to join our growing team – leading, managing and delivering high profile research and development work, and supporting colleagues within the organisation to do the same.

As Head of Research you will bring extensive expertise in applied research, a track record in leading projects and in business development, and a good understanding of the policy and delivery context for learning, skills and/or employment.

In return, you’ll have the chance to shape, lead and deliver a unique and exciting programme of work and to be part of a dynamic and committed team.

As a Silver Investor in People award holder, we are committed to staff development and equality of opportunity in all aspects of our work.

Deadline: Mon 23rd July
