Research associate

London, England

For the graduate scheme we have designed a training programme incorporating weekly content from a range of contributors. This will include theological input, understanding our cultural context, leadership, communications, personal development and much more. You will report to a line manager who will oversee and manage your workload, and you will have opportunities to develop mentoring-style relationships. There will be interaction with the other graduates on the scheme as well as the wider staff team.

The main training component will be delivered for two hours on a Tuesday afternoon which must be working time for each of the posts. Other training will be delivered on an ad hoc basis.

Successful applicants will also attend and participate in regular prayer gatherings and engage in team-wide worship.

This post will play a key role supporting our research into evangelical Christians in the UK. With strong research and analysis skills, you will be highly organised and able to co-ordinate a programme of work. You will be comfortable communicating findings to diverse audiences and able to express complex ideas carefully and concisely.

Overall role objectives:

1. To research, analyse and report on UK evangelical Christians as directed by the director of advocacy.
2. To research, analyse and report on issues relating to the state and life of the church in the UK from an evangelical Christian perspective.
3. To assist and support the work of the Evangelical Alliance as instructed by the director of advocacy.
