We are recruiting a Senior Researcher

Pivotal is looking for a Senior Researcher to join our team. This is an exciting and unique opportunity to play a key role in Northern Ireland’s independent public policy think tank.

Pivotal aims to inform and influence public policy in Northern Ireland. We are ambitious for the future, seeking to promote evidence–based policy solutions that improve the lives of everyone who lives here. Pivotal is not politically aligned, and acts in the public interest for the common good.

Pivotal uses research, data and evidence of what works to influence public policy. We work together with policy makers, politicians, academics, the public and others. We do research, publish reports, provide analysis, run events, facilitate discussions and engage with media and social media.

We are looking for an experienced and energetic Senior Researcher to become part of our team. This is a full–time role based in Belfast (hybrid working) but applicants requesting a different work pattern will be considered.

The appointment will be made for two years initially, with the possibility of extension subject to funding being in place.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Wednesday 14 December 2022. No applications will be considered after this time. Interviews will be held in early January 2023.
