British Future is recruiting for a new Director of Research and Relationships

This is a key role in a small and ambitious think-tank which has established a significant track record and reputation for thought leadership on understanding attitudes, forging effective narratives and promoting constructive policy solutions on issues of immigration and integration, race and identity in Britain today.

The post-holder will lead British Future’s research and policy strategy, in order to maximise the organisation’s constructive impact on these often-polarising debates, to help to realise our vision of a confident and inclusive Britain, welcoming and fair to all.

The post-holder will play a key role in generating new income through research projects and effective partnerships, as part of an organisational strategy to diversify our funding base for sustainability and future growth.

The post-holder will develop and execute a work programme to make significant and timely interventions that can reframe public debates on these issues. They will also build effective partnerships across civic society, economic and political actors to embed narratives and policy approaches which are principled, practical and capable of securing public consent.
