About the role
This is a perfect role for an all-rounder who is willing to pitch in to support a small, busy team seeking to influence policy and practice to tackle poverty, predominantly in Scotland but also across the devolved UK nations.
The role will involve providing quality administrative and logistical support and finding new opportunities for the team and individual to work more effectively. There’ll also be opportunities to support the senior policy advisors and analysts with their projects, gaining experience of policy development, research and influencing.
You will be highly organised, able to work autonomously on a range of tasks, including administrative work, and thrive in a fast-paced environment. You’ll be a team player who can build personal relationships across JRF as well as externally.
As we are still in the early stages of developing our ways of working this would suit someone who has the confidence to help design systems and processes, using a test and learn approach.
The Joseph Rowntree Foundation is an independent social change organisation working to solve UK poverty. Through research, policy, collaboration and practical solutions, we aim to inspire action and change that will create a prosperous UK without poverty.
