About the role:
FLEX is looking for a motivated and talented researcher who wants to be part of delivering influential research directed at achieving policy change and improvements in the field of labour exploitation. FLEX is carving out an exciting place in UK research by running innovative participatory research projects and building knowledge on how to do these well.
You will support FLEX to gather information about the drivers of labour exploitation and experiences of those in situations of exploitation in the UK and internationally. You will join the FLEX research team to deliver high quality rigorous research to time with a policy focus in mind. You will ensure that FLEX’s work is delivered to a consistently high standard, that it is responsive to the needs of the organisation and the people whose rights we are seeking to protect/promote, and contributes towards achieving FLEX’s broader organisational objectives. Above all, this role requires someone with a passion for FLEX’s work to promote labour rights to end labour exploitation and a commitment to working in a small team to make change happen.
We encourage applications from people with lived experience of the immigration and asylum system, as well as from those who identify as part of marginalised communities.
We do not offer unpaid internship positions or placements. We only consider internship or placement requests when candidates are able to secure grants to cover their salaries.
