We are looking for a Data & Research Intern or possibly a permanent Junior Researcher to join the team at OCSI. If hired as an intern, the internship will last 12 weeks, and we’d look to extend this to a permanent role if all works out.
The data & research role at OCSI is a great starting point for anybody wanting to get into quantitative research or data science. It offers the opportunity to use statistical and analytical skills to help public sector and social organisations effectively plan, target and evaluate programmes.
Based in Brighton, we are a social research consultancy with a strong technical focus. We use our expertise in research and technology to provide tools, analysis and support for organisations working for social good. We work at the cutting-edge of data, digital and public sector – take a look at http://ocsi.uk/ to find out more about the projects we are working on.
The intern will play a key role as part of the OCSI research team. The role will include:
You’ll also be improving your quantitative research skills, using statistical software, and hopefully learning to use scripting languages like Python.
As part of your role, we will also encourage you to get involved with other aspects of OCSI’s work, which may for example include gaining experience of client meetings, user support, marketing and communications.
We are looking for:
If hired as an intern, this will be a Living Wage Internship, paid at the new rate of £8.25 per hour. This is a full-time role, although we can be flexible if that is important to you.
If hired as a junior researcher, salary would depend upon skills and experience.
You’ll be based in our Brighton office in the vibrant North Laine cafes and pubs quarter, about 10 minutes walk from the sea. There may be occasional travel to London and further afield for meetings as required.
