Website Resolution Foundation

The Resolution Foundation is an independent think-tank focused on improving living standards for those on low to middle incomes. We work across a wide range of economic and social policy areas, combining our core purpose with a commitment to analytical rigour. These twin pillars of rigour and purpose underpin everything we do and make us the leading UK authority on securing widely-shared economic growth.

The Resolution Foundation is looking for a talented and committed individual to contribute to the delivery of our communications strategy, including leading on the delivery of our high-profile public events programme featuring prominent politicians, economists, business leaders and policy makers.

What does the role involve?

As a key member of the communications team, the successful candidate will work closely with our Chief Executive and core team of economic and policy experts to ensure our events align with the quality of our research and analysis. The role involves delivering a busy events schedule that maintains our existing profile in the policy making sector while also reaching out to new audiences across the UK. Opportunities to contribute to our full range of communication outputs (covering press, online and social media) will also be available as we continue to deliver an exciting plan of work at a crucial time for the economy, and for public policy.

We are a fast-paced organisation, currently focused on the state of the nation and prospects for raising living standards in an election year, as well as contributing to crucial longer-term public policy debates from the future of the minimum wage to intergenerational equity. Knowledge of the UK’s social policy environment would be beneficial, but key to success in this role are excellent communication and project management skills, plus a creative, flexible approach.

What kind of person are we looking for?

We are interested in hearing from individuals who are passionate about delivering high quality live events and keen to work with leading politicians, business leaders, and economic policy experts. Previous experience in event delivery in some capacity is essential, but most important are clear, fluent and concise communication skills, the confidence to work collaboratively with a wide range of stakeholders from academia, government, industry, and the broader research community, and the ability to edit complex material for a non-specialist audience.

The role also requires the ability to respond flexibly and proactively to changing events. Excellent organisation skills are essential, as is the capability to work at pace, on a number of different projects at the same time. The ideal candidate will be a fast learner who is comfortable picking up new skills on the job and shares our commitment to the Foundation’s purpose.  Due to the nature of the position, flexibility to fulfill some out of hours work is also needed, for which time off in lieu will be available.

What is the organisational culture?

The Resolution Foundation prides itself on analytical rigor and we strive to achieve standards of excellence in all our work. This commitment is matched by dedication to our core purpose, working to improve the living standards of those on low to middle incomes. These twin pillars of rigour and purpose underpin everything we do.

The Foundation is a small close-knit team and staff members support each other and share cross-organisational work in addition to fulfilling individual responsibilities. We offer a competitive benefits package and the opportunity to join our team at an exciting time in our development as the Foundation builds on a period of significant impact and seeks to step up to major challenges in the years ahead. We actively develop and grow the skills and reputations of all our team, and provide training and development opportunities, including support for formal qualifications when applicable. The Foundation’s office is based in Westminster with home working available two days per week. We also have a range of equality, diversity, inclusivity and family-friendly policies and practices.

Diversity at the Resolution Foundation

We value and are committed to increasing diversity within both our own organisation and the economic policy making sector more widely, and we are keen to attract applications from under-represented communities and groups. For more information about our ongoing work in this area, please see our recruitment brochure.

Pre-application Workshops

As part of this commitment, we invite interested candidates from underrepresented groups and communities to attend an online pre-application workshop with our team, where we will share information about the think tank sector generally, the application process, and what it’s like to work for the Foundation as a Communications Officer.

This online pre-application workshop is a positive action initiative aimed at people from Black, Asian and other minority ethnic groups, candidates with work-limiting health conditions or impairments, those who are looking to start a second career and / or transferring from another industry and candidates from the LGBT+ community.

The workshops will be held online on Friday 24 May 2024. If you are interested in attending, please complete this form: https://forms.office.com/e/aCviRJyxRZ.

We are also happy to provide reasonable adjustments relating to the application process and/or the demands of the role itself. Please contact sharmina.khanam@resolutionfoundation.org if you would like to speak to someone in confidence about your needs.
