Qualitative Research Executive - World Class Social Research

Job description

Join Australia’s most successful and influential full-service Social Research and Evaluation agency, which is dedicated to improving the world.  

Partnering closely with federal, state, and local government bodies, not-for-profits, charities, and mission-aligned commercial businesses, their insights touch all topics: gender equality, belonging housing, mental health, well-being, aged care, immigration, sustainability, education, and domestic violence.
It’s highly impactful, important, and meaningful work that directly informs communication campaigns, social policy, programmes, and services.  
They work on projects that matter and aim to understand how Australians think and feel about their lives and how these attitudes change over time. They are specialists in researching marginalised, rural, vulnerable, disadvantaged and hard-to-reach community members.

It’s highly impactful, important, and meaningful work that directly informs communication campaigns, social policy, programmes, and services.  
You’ll build up your qualitative methodological toolkit, which includes in-depth interviews, focus groups, literature reviews, workshops, and online communities. All projects within the agency are mixed methods, so you’ll have exposure to quantitative analysis and survey design.

An accredited Inclusive employer, they offer a collaborative culture and progressive benefits to ensure that their people can thrive personally and professionally and that everyone feels safe, heard and valued;
