About this Role

The Trades Union Congress (TUC) exists to make the working world a better place for everyone. We bring together more than 5.5 million working people who make up our 48 member unions. We support unions to grow and thrive, and we stand up for everyone who works for a living. Join us.

The Rights, International, Social and Economics Department sits at the heart of the TUC.

The team plays a key role in our work to achieve a better deal for workers, in the UK and around the world. We work with trade unions to provide expertise in employment rights, build international solidarity, campaign for an economy that delivers decent work and living wages, and help develop social policy that can ensure that all workers have a better standard of living.

We’re looking for someone to help us continue to improve the quality of the research and analysis we use to drive change. You’ll take a lead role co-ordinating analysis across the organisation and champion our research work internally and externally to support our policy and campaigning priorities.

What Experience, Skills, Knowledge and understanding do you need?

  • You’ll be experienced in production of robust data analysis for use in policy and campaign work
  • You’ll be skilled in analysing complex statistical and other information accurately using a range of statistical packages
  • You’ll have good interpersonal skills and the ability to develop consensus with a wide range of stakeholders

If this is you, then take a look at our job description and person specification.

We welcome applications from any candidate but are particularly keen to receive applications from black and minority ethnic (BME) candidates, who are underrepresented at this grade in the TUC.

If you’d like to attend the briefing session, please email by 3 pm on Friday 18th September 2020.
