Do you have good qualitative research skills with some experience of social research? Are you interested in researching the experiences of new migrants coming to live in the UK? If so, this role may be for you.

Migration Yorkshire recognises the value of involving people with lived experience of the research topic in the design and implementation of research, therefore we are looking for someone with experience of migrating to the UK.

You’ll be supporting the research work of Migration Yorkshire and its partners in the Refugee Integration Yorkshire & Humber project. Topics include social interaction between new migrants and local communities, isolation experienced by new migrants and an understanding of ‘wellbeing’ by different communities, and the housing pathways of refugees.

This is a full-time role, however applicants are welcome to apply to work 2.5 days a week.

You’ll need:

  • Good qualitative research skills
  • Some experience of social research
  • Personal experience of migrating to live in the UK
  • Familiarity with challenges faced by people with different migration statuses

The post is funded through ‘Refugee Integration Yorkshire and Humber’ which provides comprehensive support to improve the integration of refugees, with a strategic approach and front-line services, underpinned by research, evidence and refugee participation.

The project is managed by Migration Yorkshire and delivered across the Yorkshire and Humber region through a partnership of statutory and third sector organisations. The project is part-funded by the European Union Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund.

Migration Yorkshire works with national government, local government, and others to ensure that Yorkshire and Humber can deal with, and benefit from, migration. Migration Yorkshire is hosted by Leeds City Council.

For more information and to apply, go to the Leeds City Council jobs and careers website

If you know someone with experience of migrating to the UK, and an interest in research, please encourage them to apply.

You can find more details on the Migration Yorkshire website or the Leeds City Council jobs site. Please retweet this post if you can.

The closing date is 14 June 2021.
