Location: Islington, London
Salary: £26,000 - £28,000
Contract: Permanent
Deadline: Midday 9th March


The 5Rights Foundation is looking for a Researcher to join us in fighting for a digital world that supports children and young people to flourish.


At 5Rights, we work with governments, policy-makers, technologists, and NGOs all over the world to advocate for one simple principle: the enormous potential of digital technology will only be realised when it is designed with children and young people in mind.


If you're excited about conducting research into emerging technology and its impact on children; if you're enthusiastic about contributing to one of the most lively and important policy discussions of our times; and if you're committed to working on behalf of the one billion children and young people who are online, we'd love to hear from you.


Key responsibilities include:
, Be the expert in the room! Make sure 5Rights knows what it needs to know, and be confident in holding us and those in our network to the evidence.
, Conduct thorough and organised research, including rapid evidence assessments, report summaries, and deep-dives into emerging technologies and policy areas.
, Draft ad hoc briefings for senior staff on relevant developments, or ahead of meetings and conferences.
, Work with colleagues to maintain and develop strong relationships with key stakeholders from government, civil society, and industry, including by representing 5Rights at meetings and events.
, Identify opportunities for 5Rights to affect change and/or contribute to the development of relevant policy, both in the UK and internationally.
, Draft policy and comms content for the 5Rights' website.
, Provide general support to the policy team, as necessary.
