Senior Research and Statistical Analyst (Social Policy), Open to flexible working
Covid-19 has exposed longstanding structural inequality affecting London’s communities. Can you provide the analysis to help us address this and other social policy challenges?
The Social Policy Analysis team was set up three years ago to build a Social Evidence Base addressing the Mayor of London’s priorities on equalities, economic fairness, social integration, poverty and welfare reform. We need an experienced analyst to contribute to the team’s work in light of Covid-19 to provide high quality outputs to understand the socio-economic impacts of Covid-19 and support London’s Recovery.
You will work with the Principal Social Policy Analyst, alongside a wide range of GLA teams, to identify evidence needs and develop a varied set of outputs to fill these, using your experience of managing projects from conception to publication, including indicator frameworks, evidence summaries, analysis briefings and policy evaluation ensuring that future policies are based on robust evidence and measurement.
You will be customer-focused and have experience in providing specialist analysis and advice to policy teams implementing strategies in these areas. You will have excellent data analysis skills, with a track record of undertaking policy-focused analysis projects through to completion drawing on a diverse range of large and complex data sources.
London's diversity is its biggest asset and we strive to ensure our workforce reflects London's diversity at all levels. We welcome applications from everyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith or disability.
We are committed to being an inclusive employer and we are happy to consider flexible working arrangements. We would welcome applications from candidates who are seeking part time work as this role is open to job share. We would also consider a reduced hours arrangement; the minimum requirement would be 30 hours per week (flexibility on days).
