Research and Impact Officer

Mar 25, 2024

Beyond the Streets is a small charity with a big determination to see routes out for women selling sex in the UK. We are currently looking to recruit a Research and Impact Officer. This is a crucial role in supporting the monitoring and evaluation of our work as an organisation and in contributing to the design and delivery of innovative research which builds the case for tackling sexual exploitation in the UK. Working closely with the Research and Impact Manager, this role ensures that the work of Beyond the Streets is informed by learning from lived experience, practitioner experience and academic research; producing a variety of research outputs that inform service development, training content, and policy proposal development.

You will be a champion of the cause and have a passion for supporting women who face multiple disadvantages and be familiar with a Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) perspective. You will have experience in conducting research in the humanities or social sciences. You will have great interpersonal skills, strong written and verbal communication skills and be able to work independently as well as part of a team. We are looking for someone with energy, motivation, skills, and experience; someone who can understand the big picture and can deliver to deadlines.

Beyond the Streets is a charity inspired by Christian values. This belief inspires us to work with acceptance, value and mutual respect for all. We promote a healthy work life balance and regularly reflect on our boundaries and our strategy for the year. We genuinely seek to work as a team and ensure that no one is ‘rescuing’ or working outside their allocated hours. You will be joining a growing team at Beyond the Streets. We currently have 18 members of staff, with a mix of full-time and part-time working patterns.

The role will be based at either our East London or Southampton office. Remote working will be considered for the right candidates but there will be visits required to our offices in Southampton and East London.

This post is restricted to female applicants only under Section 9 of the Equality Act 2010.
