Description:

We have exciting opportunities within our education team for accomplished Research Directors who are passionate about education research to boost our offering in our education, skills and higher education sectors.

This role is for people already working in this space and who bring with them significant experience from a range of roles and clients.

We're happy to consider part time and flexible working options as well as people who may work remotely, we're keen to bring in the best people to our brilliant team and will look at the right arrangements for the right candidate.

About the role

We have a number of opportunities for Research Directors who have significant experience within the education space whether you are a mixed methods lead or an evaluation specialist, we’d love to chat to you about our roles.

These roles have come about primarily due to business growth as we build on our strong reputation within the sectors and expand our evaluation offering.

As a Director within the team, you’ll be responsible for the delivery and leadership of key projects, leading teams, liaising with clients and ensuring work is delivered efficiently and profitably.

Working with the sector head, you’ll work towards sector targets and support in winning new business. As leaders within the group you’ll also support, motivate and develop your team and junior researchers.

Currently, the vast majority of work in this sector is with public sector clients, including the Department for Education, with whom we have a long-term client relationship and ongoing repeat business. We are also proud to have repeatedly delivered the UKs largest social survey Graduate Outcomes with the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

About you

You must be a practiced Director with some experience in an agency environment and demonstrable skills leading and delivering high profile, large scale, outstanding quality projects within education, higher education or learning and skills and for one role we’re looking for a strong expertise in delivering evaluation work.

You must have an impressive track record of creating winning bids and proposals, including presentations, pitches and client portfolios and your previous delivery or commissioning of work will ensure you have a clear understanding of working with the public sector and you’ll demonstrate substantial experience of leading and managing the development and implementation of research projects, including research design, execution and reporting.

Experience of both quantitative and qualitative methodologies is highly preferable.

We’re a people centred business and value our culture greatly, we look for people who share our Values and live by our Rules of the Game, showing strong people leadership skills with a desire to motivate teams and support development. As well as this we look for people who are highly collaborative and able to work effectively with other Directors both within our Education sector and other sectors to win and deliver work; this will mean excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to communicate openly, honestly and frequently at all levels with all departments in the company.

In return we offer 28 days holiday plus bank holidays, private healthcare options, flexible working, a rewarding bonus scheme, wellbeing support and social events among a number of other benefits.
