Research Officer
Contract Type
Full Time

What does London’s future look like?  How do we create communities in which Londoners want to live, work and play? What will make London the best big city in the world? These are just some of the questions we’re working to answer at City Hall. But we can’t do this alone – a dialogue with Londoners is essential, and that’s where this job comes in.

Are you an experienced and curious quantitative researcher, passionate about giving people a say in how we tackle the big policy challenges? This is your chance to do that in an organisation with influence and high national profile.

You’ll work in City Hall’s Opinion Research team, working across policy teams, to bring new insight from Londoners to develop policies that meet Londoners needs. We are experts at integrating research, data analysis and consultation into meaningful policy conversations, to meet the challenges of population growth, economic and environmental change.  We use a range of tools: from traditional forms of consultation and social research, to innovative digital engagement.

An excellent communicator, committed to building partnerships, you will be well-versed in commissioning and designing quantitative research projects, working with research agencies and policy officers to deliver high quality insight on citizens’ opinions, perceptions and behaviours.

This is a 12 month fixed term opportunity.

London's diversity is its biggest asset and we strive to ensure our workforce reflects London's diversity at all levels. Applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates will be particularly welcomed as they are currently under-represented in this area of our organisation.

Application closing date: Monday 24 October 2016 at 23:59 GMT.
Interviews will take place at: City Hall on Wednesday 2 & Thursday 3 November 2016.
