Job Details

The Nuffield Family Justice Observatory is an organisation that seeks to improve the lives of children and families by bringing data and evidence to the people who work in and around the family courts – judges, lawyers, social workers, Cafcass guardians, policy makers and more.  We find and fill the gaps in our understanding of the family justice system, highlight the areas where change will have the biggest impact on children and families, and foster collaboration to make that change happen.

As a Researcher, you will support the work of Nuffield FJO by carrying out relevant data analysis and research on a range of topics relating to family justice (including social care, public and private law and the family courts). You will analyse nationally available administrative data, synthesise existing research findings, draft reports, develop infographics, present findings to a wide range of audiences and help build and develop Nuffield FJO’s reach and influence.  

You will have experience of a range of social research techniques and excellent writing and presentation skills. This will be supported by a relevant degree (ideally a Masters), and some experience of working on issues related to families and children would be advantageous. You will have experience of coordinating and managing research projects. You will also have experience of quantitative data analysis of large datasets, using R, Stata, Markdown, Python or similar. Knowledge of data visualisation techniques is also highly desirable.

For further information and to apply, please click through to our recruitment platform. The closing date for applications is 09:00am (BST) on 7th July 2022, with interviews taking place the 19th, 20th and 21st July 2022.

We strongly encourage applicants from backgrounds that are underrepresented in the research and policy worlds (for example those who have lived experienced of the family justice system or come from a marginalised community). We are committed to tackling societal injustice and inequality through our work and believe that all kinds of experiences and backgrounds can contribute to this mission.


The Nuffield Foundation is an independent charitable trust with a mission to advance educational opportunity and social well-being.

We fund research that informs social policy, primarily in EducationWelfare and Justice. We also provide opportunities for young people to develop skills and confidence in science and research.

We are the founder and co-funder of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics, the Nuffield Family Justice Observatory and the Ada Lovelace Institute.

The Nuffield Foundation was established in 1943 by William Morris, Lord Nuffield, the founder of Morris Motors.
