With the wealth of data collated from our services nationally, we have a unique insight into emerging trends and issues affecting people, and we use it to influence government, regulators and industry, to improve people's lives.
As a member of our policy research teams, you will work across different policy areas, using a wide range of research methods and creating outputs including blogs, reports, presentations and events. Our strong brand will give you unique opportunities to engage with those who have the power to make change.

We are looking for exceptional individuals with good research and communication skills, curiosity, and ambition to achieve real change on behalf of our clients and consumers. Relevant professional experience is not essential for these roles, but a demonstrable interest the policy landscape is vital.
