Job Title: Researcher
Working For: Create Streets
Salary: TBD depending on applicant. Likely circa £26,000.
Do you …?
Do you care passionately about where people live? Do you believe that the role of community and residents needs to be prioritised in deciding what we build, where and how?
Do you love the traditional city scape, a strong sense of place, mixed communities with a diversity of residents and a blend of work and play? Do ‘could be anywhere’ developments make you despair? Do you worry about what we are currently doing to London and other cities?
Would you like to be part of a small but influential and prize-winning social enterprise which has attracted support from across the political spectrum, which has been described as ‘influential’ (The Guardian), ‘brilliant’ (Central Acton Neighbours’ Forum) and as one of ‘the 50 radical-thinking individuals and organisations changing the UK for the better’ (The Observer and Nesta UK)? Would you like to work with an organisation which is influencing borough, London and national policy on housing and helping communities on the ground with popular design and development?
If the answer to the above questions is yes then the following opportunity might be for you.
It’s a unique chance to influence research, policy and practice in the built environment through a combination of research and ‘hands-on’ community engagement, urban design and policy impact. As Alan Baxter, the Director of Alan Baxter Associates put it:
“What you are doing is totally right and, very importantly, right for the time in which we live. You’re there at the beginning of a new wave of thinking”
We have been getting bigger with a growing number of research requirements and community groups, public sector clients and landowners wishing to take advantage of our research and our work. We therefore need to find the right person to join our small and dedicated team initially primarily to focus on one major research project.

Closing Date: 2 November 2018
Interviews will be taking place during November with new role expected to start at the start of 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
