Research Assistant (Part-time)

We are seeking an energetic, resourceful and suitably qualified person to provide Research Assistance to the Social Guarantee.

The Social Guarantee (SG) was launched in July 2021.  We aim to ensure universal access to life’s essentials, building on the idea of Universal Basic Services (UBS).  This means meeting everyone’s basic needs within the limits of the natural environment – a goal that can only be realised through collective action, including delivery of public services to all who need them, investment of public funds and regulation in the public interest.  

It’s an exciting new venture that has already attracted wide support.  It is especially important today because services not only play a major role in maintaining living standards and reducing inequalities, but also proactively address the climate emergency.  There’s more work to be done to build the case for the Social Guarantee and to get it on to the agenda of policy makers and practitioners right across the country.

This is a part-time position, for 2 days a week with flexible and negotiable hours, working from home. The hourly rate is £20.  

Deadline for applications: 00.01 Monday 18 September 2022.
