Senior Research Officer


28th November 2021

Senedd Research provides independent specialist parliamentary research support and briefing to all Members of the Senedd to ensure they are able to support their constituents and participate in Senedd business.

We are recruiting a fixed term Senior Research Officer within the Children, Education and Lifelong Learning Team.  Within the team, this post has particular responsibility for covering Higher Education, Further Education and Skills. However, as demand requires, the post holder will also need to support work of the other subject areas within the wider remit of the team. For example this includes pre-16 education policy.

You will be expected to have excellent research and communication skills. You will also need relevant policy knowledge, as well as the ability to provide advice and briefing on aspects of Welsh policy and legislation that fall within your area of expertise.

You will be working directly with Members of the Senedd, their staff and with Senedd Committees at a time of significant focus on the policy areas covered by this post.

This is an excellent opportunity to work at the heart of Welsh democracy and to play a key role in developing and influencing the work of the Senedd.  You will provide Members with the information they need to represent both their constituents and the interests of Wales as a whole.  At the same time, you’ll have the opportunity to develop yourself and your understanding of our political system in a supportive, creative and stimulating environment.

If this is you, please get in touch.
