Research Director – Environmental Policy

  • England, London
  • Permanent

Job reference: BM-3620

  • Associate Director or Research Director level (6+ years of experience)
  • Energy and Environment team
  • Quantitative or Mixed Method research


We are working with one of the most successful, global research agencies, who are at the forefront of the industry for their expertise in research and influencing policy decisions. This, teamed with their reputation, scale and resource, means they are not only a great employer but also a fantastic place for you to develop your experience.


The Role:

This is an exciting opportunity for a senior researcher looking for their next challenge. This role will respond to the needs of the UK Government and its agencies on designing and designing public policies in areas critical to the transition to a net zero economy and society.


This is across themes such as clean growth, climate risk awareness and adaptation, low carbon innovation, behaviour change and public attitudes.


In this role, you will direct high profile studies to influence communications and decision making across UK Government and the third sector.


This is a quantitative or mixed method (quant and qual) position. We are looking for a highly capable methods expert, experienced in business development (ideally within the public sector / Government) and managing client accounts. At Director level, you’ll also lead a team.


Whilst experience working within energy and environment policy is desirable, it’s not essential. That said, we are looking for someone with an interest and enthusiasm within this sector.


Quantitative and/or mixed method research experience is essential, preferably from a research agency.



Please apply for next steps. We encourage applications from individuals of all backgrounds and actively seek to embrace diversity across age, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, race, religion, and sex.


For successful applicants, a recruitment consultant will be in touch via email to schedule a briefing call. We will explain the role in more detail and share the company details before creating a formal application.


Note: Due to the high volume of applications we receive, only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
