Recently our policy research has resulted in changes which have made a real difference to those who rent privately and those living in social care. It’s helped people applying for a job, and those needing to apply for welfare benefits. And has given people information about their broadband choices and how they can use their phone abroad.

You can find out more about how we achieve change through our policy research here.

As a member of our policy research team, you will work across different policy areas, using a wide range of research methods and creating outputs including blogs, reports, presentations and events.
