The Children's Commissioner for England promotes and protects the rights and best interests of children, in particular those whose voices are least likely to be heard, to the people who make decisions about their lives.

The newly appointed Children’s Commissioner is embarking on a five-year strategic plan to improve outcomes for all children – especially those who are most vulnerable.   This is an exciting opportunity to support the delivery of the plan by leading on the collection and analysis of data, and supporting the development of robust and strategic approaches to research.

Based in the Policy Team, you will be required to work with all parts of the organisation to inform research, consultation responses and briefings by gathering, storing and analysing data for agreed projects.


The post will:

  • Lead on the collection and analysis of public data to understand and reflect the experience of children and young people, across all aspects of the Commissioner’s strategic plan
  • Work alongside the Director of Policy and other staff to develop internal research projects in support of the strategic plan
  • Provide advice to the organisation to ensure there is a robust evidence base and lead on the development of strategic approaches to research and data collection.
