- Manage and grow a team, developing their skills and expertise in research techniques, report writing and stakeholder engagement.
- Lead on a range of projects, including writing reports, blogs and presenting EPI research findings to high-level audiences such as the media and parliamentary select committees.
- Be part of the Executive Team, overseeing the growth and sustainability of the organisation.
If you have:
