Role Overview

 
We are looking to recruit two Fixed Term Contracts Researcher roles (or part-time equivalent) (until the end of December 2023, with the possibility of extension) with a core focus on qualitative research, to work on design, fieldwork, analysis and reporting across key research projects, including our UK Household Financial Diaries project. This is a great opportunity to apply your research experience to an exciting research programme working within a supportive team. We are open to applications from both people who are looking for a full-time role, and those wanting a part-time role alongside academic or other commitments.

All our work focusses on understanding the challenges low- to moderate-income households in the UK face, and exploring and evaluating potential policy and market solutions to those challenges.

In this role, you will work on one or more of the following areas:

  • Understanding the impacts of precarious work and income volatility on financial wellbeing, including factors such as self-employment, zero hours contracts, caring responsibilities and disabilities and health conditions
  • Building financial security and financial resilience, including considering current and future solutions, such as workplace saving, accessible loans, community finance and earned wage access
  • Supporting journeys towards wealth and asset building including understanding the barriers and enablers to household financial growth
  • Supporting retirement saving and understanding retirement saving behaviours, challenges and opportunities in context

Flexible and agile working

Everyone's personal situation is different. To make the most out of hybrid working we've introduced different ways of working, which include (subject to role requirements):

  • hybrid of office and home working (there will be an expectation to attend the office, as required)  
  • reduce or vary working hours
  • reduce or vary the days worked
  • work from home (or a different location)
  • work compressed hours
  • job share

Directorate/Department Overview

Nest Insight is a public-benefit research and innovation centre. Our mission is to find ways to support people to be financially secure, both today and into retirement. We conduct rigorous, cutting-edge research, working collaboratively with industry and academic partners to understand the financial challenges facing low- and moderate-income households.We use these data-driven insights to identify and test practical, real-world solutions. Our findings are shared widely and freely so that people around the world can benefit from our work.

Whilst our research programme began with a focus on retirement saving, we now take an increasingly wide-angled view of household finances and financial wellbeing. For example, this year we have been working with SUEZ, TransaveUK and a team of academics at Harvard and Yale to pilot an opt-out approach to workplace payroll savings (which has been hailed as a ‘remarkable trial’ and ‘the way ahead’). We are about to begin an innovative large-scale, longitudinal UK household financial diaries project

Organisational Overview

Nest Insight is a business unit of Nest Corporation, but we are responsible for raising our own operating budget through grants and sponsorship. We currently have a core team of 10 people working across research, data analysis, partnerships and communications. The team is passionate about the work we do and proud of what we are achieving. We are innovative thinkers, not afraid to challenge the status quo. We work flexibly, creatively and collaboratively. We are committed to supporting each other to learn and develop. This is an exciting time to join Nest Insight –we’re growing quickly with lots of exciting projects in the pipeline and plans to expand our reach significantly over the next three years.

Diversity and Inclusion

Everyone is welcome to apply for our roles, and we are determined to ensure that no applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment because of their age, belief, disability, gender identity, marital status, national origin, pregnancy or caring responsibilities, socio economic background, sex, sexual orientation, religion or race or any other legally protected status.

We also recognise the importance of diversity of thought and other forms of neurocognitive variation.
