For more than five decades, we've been working to bring about positive change. Fifty years of changing laws, changing lives and getting a fair deal for consumers. People rely on us for independent, impartial advice, and to help them make the right choices.
With the number of choices and the range of services available for consumers getting bigger all the time, it's up to us to listen to what people really need and help them navigate the myriad of options out there. Our Policy team is at the heart of this, and you could be too.
We work with everyone, whether trade bodies, retailers or regulators to address challenges faced by consumers; from product selection and pricing to market entry and redress. We're expanding and looking for a new Policy Research Assistant to join us to offer research support on a two year fixed term contract. A highly organised individual, you will have a good theoretical understanding, and some experience of, a range of modern research methods. You will be able to manage a busy and varied workload including prioritising and working to strict deadlines.
We want someone with a positive attitude, willingness to learn and an analytical mind who can grasp this development opportunity with both hands. In return, you will be able to get involved with exciting projects across a range of consumer markets which will further develop your research and policy analysis skills. An understanding and interest in current affairs, the needs of business and issues facing modern consumers is essential; as is the ability to write in a way that is clear, interesting and concise.
This is your chance to make an impact at an organisation that's proud to be the voice of the UK consumer.
Stand up and be counted on.
