Staff Vacancies

Senior Policy & Research Advisor, Construction & Labour

EAP is looking for an experienced Senior Policy & Research Advisor who will be responsible for developing new and innovative research, policy and knowledge content in line with EAPs mission to improve infrastructure policy and engineering practice and to help reduce and eventually eliminate poverty. This will include identifying and pursuing funding opportunities, whether through grant applications or consultancy opportunities. It will also involve working with our communications manager to identify key messages from the research, policy and knowledge content to maximise our influence amongst key decision-makers through our website, regular newsletters, blogs, social media and external events.

The appointment is intended to strengthen EAP’s research and policy work on construction industry development, and employment and labour issues within the sector. Construction is a labour intensive industry that provides significant opportunities for building local business capacity and generating employment that can lead to a way out of poverty. But local firms often struggle to compete and the terms of employment and conditions of work in the industry can be very poor, particularly for migrant workers who form a high proportion of the total workforce in many countries.  

EAP has already established a reputation for policy-oriented research in this area through the research led by Dr. Jill Wells. She is now retiring and will work with the person appointed to ensure a smooth handover. 

EAP will also consider less experienced applicants who have a strong interest in taking this work forward as a Policy & Research Advisor. We will also consider applicants who wish to work on a part-time basis. 


To apply please email a CV and one page covering letter to info@engineersagainstpoverty.org by Friday 8 September 2017.
