About Us

The King’s Global Institute for Women’s Leadership researches the causes and consequences of gender inequalities and the lack of diversity in leadership positions globally. Chaired by Julia Gillard, the only woman to have served as Prime Minister of Australia, we bring together rigorous research, practice, and advocacy to accelerate the pace of change.

About the Role

The King’s Global Institute for Women’s Leadership (GIWL) is seeking to recruit a Senior Project Officer (0.6 FTE) for an ESRC-funded initiative titled ‘Bridging the Gender Data Gap: Using Census Data to Understand Gender Inequalities Across the UK’.

The project is run in partnership with the Women’s Budget Group to deliver data training workshops in multiple locations across the UK and to promote the use of UK census data for feminist analysis.

You will lead the project's administrative organisation, working closely with colleagues at GIWL and the Women’s Budget Group. You will support the initiative by planning, coordinating, and co-delivering the data workshops. If successful you will be expected to travel to and attend the workshops and events related to the Research Project.

An interest in gender and equality issues would be beneficial. Given the range of support required of the role, the successful candidate will need to be organised, flexible, and comfortable working in a fast-paced environment, and willing to pitch in with a variety of tasks when needed.
